Hit print screen, switch to Paint or some other graphic program, hit paste and save the shot as a file. You can then upload into a message.

Print screen is simple, but gives a very simple result. If you want more then ask and there will be loads of help on more complex - but more interesting screen shots that can be achieved.

One way is:

Screen capture and annotation tutorial

If you mean how pics are attached to posts, look below the white text field when creating your post, click embed picture then click upload image and point it to your pic.

Otherwise use print screen as suggested and paste it into your image editor of choice.

Very generous of you, Roger Neilson II, to go to all that trouble to make your tutorial.  If we don't already have a sticky on this subject, we could do a lot worse than to sticky your tutorial.  Is it permitted to disclose what programs you use instead of paint to annotate and their approximate cost?

Not using SnagCap anymore? Is King Kong better?

Somewhere in the region of 99% of my own screen captures are done using Snagit..... by far my 'weapon of choice'. Occasionally I use Photoshop for the odd special effect, but that's more on the image stuff like the Flashman picture published at the weekend. I only have used King Kong when I want to capture a rapid series of screens - e.g. when a CV is being hit by bombs and I want to show a cartoon strip effect. The reason the tutorial uses King Kong and Paint.net is because they are both free and get most of the effect that you get with Snagit, though it takes a little longer. A fair bit of my day job uses such tools so I'm very at home with them. I created the tutorial as an exercise in learning how to use a WIKI and used the subject matter as a useful piece of material. happy to share with anyone. A lot of people are very cost conscious and I tried to show how you could do better than just print screen dumping at no cost other than your time.

However Snagit is brilliant, and i did post a link a while back to a free download of an earlier version of Snagit (still pretty good) unfortunately that expired on the 7th Jan.

For those who are interested in what Snagit can do then have a look at my AAR

The end of the world.....
from about page 4 where I began to use it pretty consistently. I don't use all the features by far, but it illustrates some of them.

Cost - $39.95 (30 day trial)

Snagit website

And no I'm not on any commission.

BTW I noticed on your AAR against GH you have used some of those icons I did - have you realised they are re sizable?

Roger

Its a while ago, but I think I deliberately forced myself to only use the tools in Paint.net for that.

See my other reply to Cantona for what, if you want to spend some money, I'd say was the best package around.
