    I've seen on the board people using a certain free software to grab pics off the web (graphs, screen, etc.) Would appreciate a link and more info.Thanks very much. :)
     
  2. I USE SNAGIT

    i am awesome
     
  3. Google "5-Clicks Software", and "Grabzilla". Both are simple and work well. 5-Clicks is $9.95, but I prefer it.
     
  4. In Win XP, I click on Alt-Print Scrn then paste the image into Paint, save it as a jpg and voila.
     
  5. use GRABZILLA. its free and simple and efficient and works with multiple displays [any size you want GRABZILLA snags it]

    actually I was wondering about that but thought it would be too simple a question to ask...that is minus the [Alt] why don't people just use the print screen key and paste it onto paint?

    what am I missing? :confused:
     
  9. can you capture portions of the image with print-screen?

    can you capture an image stretched over several displays?

    no.

    :-/

    As far as portions, you can take whatever you want out and keep whatever you want in paint. I never had anything stretched over multiple screens, so never needed to do that, got me there.
