    Can anyone suggest a good program to capture screenshots ? Either free or a 30 day trial. I have to post some antispyware program results here at Wilders. ;)

    I've never used this type of software before .... so I'm hoping also, for a "user friendly" application. :doubt:

    whilst you await for replies for specific software....

    why not use print screen key on your keyboard, then go to a program like paint and select edit> paste, save the image as a jpeg, etc

    I don't use dont screen any seperate screen capture tools.

    hope this helps

    Theses programs allow you a LOT more flexibility than print screen :D ... All depends of what you really need.

    Well, I tried the one that was just above my second post .... the one nicM suggested ....Faststone Capture and was able to achieve results really fast.;)

    Only thing, when I tried to upload more than 1 attachment into the same posting here at Wilders I did not have any success. I did manage to get the most important one done though.

    However .... I'll have a look at all the other suggestions .... I guess it couldn't hurt to have more than one. :D

    Thanks again everyone.

    if u want to post more than one pic, just place the images inline with the message using bbcode tags or just press the insert image button. as for screenshot programs, i just use the method described by betauser2. and if you only want to grab the topmost window, press alt and then print screen.

    Do have a look at this topic too for a lot of other free ones as well as paid. :)
    If you've got some money to burn, try the one I'm using.
    SnagIt is the best IMHO. :cool:

    Not free, but CaptureWiz Lite or Pro are very good IMO.

    Ehmm, well, compared to printscreen, with a good screenshot program you can save time with features like automatic edges detection (window capture, etc), autoscroll, capture of every types of popups menus, text/arrows, choice of picture quality, size, etc, on the fly, before to save your picture.

    With printscreen you've to edit the pic with a graphic program once the screenshot is saved. That's the main difference :) .


    ...plus with Faststone, the one I'm using, you get theses funny peeping eyes moving in your taskbar when the program is loaded :D , I really like it... lol

    Ok I'm joking about this one, but I've noticed they did change the taskbar icon in version 2 for a very serious one... I'll mail them to tell I prefer the former icon :p ...
