  • Screen Shot in PS CS2?

    Does anyone know if you can take a screen shot in Photoshop CS2? I always have to have Jasc PSP open to take a screen shot and it kinda eats up resources.

    Assuming you're using Windows, here's the skinny (from Windows 2000 help):

    To copy the window or screen contents

    To make a copy of only the active window, press ALT+PRINT SCREEN.
    To copy the entire screen as it appears on your monitor, press PRINT SCREEN.


    To paste the image into a document, click the Edit menu in the document window, and then click Paste.
    It's probably similar for XP.

      Try using MW Snap (freeware) available from

      I've used it for a while, can snap whole screen, selected areas, and windows menus.

      Works fine in PS7, can't see any reason for it not to work in CS2.

          I don't know if this is hardware or software or carbonware, but it's driving me nutz!

          I'm in PhotoShop Elements 2 on WindowsXP, do File>Save for Web, hit the print screen button on the keyboard of my laptop and I can capture that screen in all it's glory so I can put it in my PowerPoint...
