  • Screen Shot Software.....

    Hi.....I'm going from an old Mac running OS 8.5 to purchasing a new P4 PC running WinXP Home. I'm looking for Screen Shot Software for WinXP and need some help choosing one. On the Mac when taking a rectangular screen shot of a portion of the screen I used the "command/shift/4" keys and dragged the area with the mouse to take a shot of the portion of the screen...simple.
    I was wondering if there is a simple Software program for WinXP to run in the background while surfing the web, that will let me take a screen shot of any portion of the screen, that will send that image to a predefined folder to hold a number of screen shots. Then I can access that folder when off line to open those screen shots in PSD7 or, run in a slide show program. That is all I want the Screen Shot Program to do. Would prefer a program like that which included an easy slide show with it, but, that doesn't matter. Is there a program that you know of that will simply let me do that in WinXP? Can you tell me the name of the program and where I can purchase it?
    Thank you for any help with this,

        A freeware screen cap link (there is also a shareware page):

        Freeware Screenshot Capture . Capture all or part of your desktop, application interfaces and more.

        Also check for more downloads.

        While on the general topic of screen caps:

          I'm a big fan of SnagIt, which allows you to select exactly the part of the screen you are copying.

                    by Bob Mc
                    I'm using ScreenHunter 4.0 - a freebee - by which has real simple basic capabilities. There are $$ upgrades also available.
                    However, if you just want a shot of the active window - it just takes a few clicks and saves them with a sequential number in any directory you tell...

                    Screen shots
                    by pjstaley
                    I am trying to get a specific screen shot (From Lord of The Rings). I've tried using Gadwin and ACDSee to no avail. They both only return a black box. For whatever reason, it's not seeing the output. Can anyone suggest how I might get a screen shot from a video?

                    Need a quick background?
                    by Swampy
                    I discovered that I could use a screen shot of my screen saver to create a quick background that was perfect for a fireworks poster project. I used a Mac utility called "SnapZPro" to grab the image, because you usually can't use key strokes to grab a screensaver because you will just stop...
