- View SourceBoth PC and Mac have ways to take screenshots, Dennis--
PC: hold down FN and PrtScr to send a copy of the screen to your
clipboard. Open MS Paint or Photo Shop and >Paste. Saves as a .bmp
file or can be converted in Photo Shop.
Mac OS X: open Grab and from the >Capture menu select >Selection or
>Window. Saves as a .pic file,To convert either file to Web format (.jpg), I use Graphic Converter
(about $35 US for either PC or Mac). However, the quality or
readability of the screen will depend on how good your monitor/feed is
to begin with, doesn't it? You can enlarge the print on your screen or
browser, and that might help with legibility.
There are also a number of programs that will record motion on your
screen--a screencast. You didn't say what your purposes were?

- View SourceThanks, Elizabeth.
My purpose was and is as follows: I'm learning to webcast at the Webcast
Academy and I want to be able to take screencasts of the many settings that
are involved in several different programs, and sections within those
programs so that the tutors can guide me.
There have been so many answers to this question about screen shots, that,
as a thank you, I'm planning to list suggestions and post them to the list.
