Screenshot-posting for beginners
« on: May 20, 2007, 06:00:57 PM »
Thank you very much for that. Now I have something else to play with...lol...I really have to sleep at some point...
I would just like to thank this forum, its admins and helpers for a very pleasant experience.
I have really picked up ALOT of information here, all of it clean and very useful.
My suggestion to others is simply to click into a section of the forum, any section, and just start reading. More and more doing that has led me to other ideas and ways of solving difficulties from with in my system. And of course, some of the links I have run into, (such as the ones in this thread), have really given my system all sorts of entertainment.
So, if you guys keep posting your ideas, I will keep reading them.  (:KWL)
My friends call me Papa, you call me Mr. Smurf

How to take a screenshot, upload it to a image-host &
post it on a Board ( like Comodo's Forum )


Sometimes a picture says more than a thousand words. Screenshots can be a great
help when describing a problem with for example Your network-rules .
 
Taking the screenshot :

 I highly recommend the FREE program  " FastStone Capture " available for
free legal download here : http://www.faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm
Here is a screenshot showing You what it looks like :

I agree with everything being said about a "picture is worth a thousand words", and in general about capturing screen/s for better clarity when dealing with issues.  However, I do have to disagree that "FastStone Capture" is free.  While it may be freely available for download, it is not a FREEWARE but instead it is a SHAREWARE.  It is free to be downloaded for an evaluation of 30 days, after which you will need to either buy or uninstall or else ... I don't know, will have to wait for 30 days to find out if it becomes crippled.  If anyone is looking for freeware please see this posting right here at this COMODO Forum.

If you don't wish to install an additional program to capture screen shots, you can easily use the PrintScreen function in Windows:

To capture the whole screen, simply press the PrintScrn button (just right of the F12 key)

This will create an image of everything on the entire screen. It then copies that image to the Windows clipboard.

Next, Go to the Start Menu/Run and type mspaint [press enter]
In mspaint, select Edit and then paste. (you can also use <ctrl + v>) You should see the image of your screen in the main window. At this point, you could edit the image, before saving.
Select the File menu, then 'Save As'
Give the file a name and from the 'Save as type', choose PNG
You now have a screen capture.

To select only the active window using this method, press the <Alt> key with PrintScrn.

I had completely forgotten about this screen-capture utility.  It is really neat, especially the scrolling window.  I just found out today that after the 30 day trail period you have only three choices (really two) buy or uninstall.  I'll stay with Wisdom-Soft Screen Hunter Free, it is limited but works for me.

There are other free utilities for this purpose.  One I know of is HoverSnap, by the folks that do RegSeeker.  No time limits or anything, just freeware.

Here is another one screen capture utility freeware.  Donations are accepted.  I'm not sure if it is loaded with any spyware.  I haven't tried it yet but will do so later today.

FastStone Capture ver.5.3 (last freeware) can be downloaded here :
http://www.portablefreeware.com/download.php?id=775

Thanks for the link. I can now ignore the rest of them, at least for now, till I find a better one than this FastStone.
