Print Screen Program

When I take print screens and put them on paint to save them the quality
is rubbish. Is there a *free *program that you can take print screens
with that does not decrease the quality?

Thanks

Re: Print Screen Program

Use this: ( 'A+ Freeware - Multimedia & Design - FastStone Capture 5.3
(last freeware version)'
(http://www.aplusfreeware.com/categor...neCapture.html)
). No need to paste. The printed screen appears directly on the screen
and you can edit it, annotate it, etc. (if desired) and "Save as" (top
left).
PS: best quality you get with .png

=================================
If you are running any version of Vista other than
Basic...read about the Vista Snipping Tool.

Use Snipping Tool to capture screen shots

Vista Tutorial - How to use the Snipping Tool in Vista

Or...try the free version of Gadwin PrintScreen:

Re: Print Screen Program
I use IrfanView for most of my screen captures on XP, Vista and Windows 7.
That and the Microsoft Snipping Tool.
