Hi MUS,

The best way is to use Vdub and open your mpeg file. Then go to video tab and do a copy frame to clipboard, and paste into PhotoShop or Windows Paint. Then save your picture as JPG or PNG. Then you can upload your picture somewhere and put a link here pointing to it. You can't upload pictures here.

I do screen captures with a program called SnagIt. I capture the image in BMP format and resize it with CompuPic to something like 640x480 or 600x800 so it doesn't go off the screen. Then I upload the picture to my webspace with WS_FTP. Then in your post use IMG tags to point to the url of your picture.



As you can see by the snagit logo in the corner, the programs not free but there are probably alternatives that work just as well.

Why don't check out with Windows included <Alt>+<Print Screen> (or <Ctrl>+<Print Screen>). It works the same, and it is free.

evening everyone.

rendalunit,
In XP, it may be Shift+PrintScreen.

In W98, it's Alt+PrintScreen. (hold down Alt key and press PrintScreen)

But, wait, maybe you doning it out of order, that is..
Say you have a window open on your desktop.. maybe it's the file
open dialog box.. well, in W98, you would Alt+PrintScreen and that would
put an image into the Clipboard, THEN you paste that image within your
Painshop or Image application. But, remember, NOT to copy/paste any
by pressing either the Ctrl+C or under a menu, Edit/Copy etc. else you
will loose the Clipboard conents, hence your copied Image.

So, if you have ANY window item opened right now, and press either the
Alt+PrintScreen or Shift+PrintScreen or, if all else fails, just PrintScreen
all by itself, go straight to your Paint application and Paste your windowed
content and vualla !!

Let us know if this helps you all.

rendalunit,
hay, glad you got it working dude he, he..

that PrintScreen thing goes way back in the DOS days. That was used for
those brute-force quicky print of the screen contents. ..Remeber the old
dot-matrix days he he..

In my fun Delphi projecting around, I had played w/ the idea of a hot-key
that would copy an area of the screen or a particular opended window.
I always wanted to do something like that Snag-it app floating around.

App I'm toying with:
I have something in the works, but just playing arund mind you. Anyways,
its not hot-key ready, yet. So, who knows.. But, it will accept anything that
is copied to the Clipboard and you have the option of saving to *.BMP
I guess you could say its in Alpha stage he, he.. I just want something for
myself that I can add to my stockpile of tools he, he.. Well, add picSwitch
as the first one to the soon to be growing list.

The code snip (taken from my app under development) below shows how
rediculously easy it is to SAVE the contents of the clipboard to a file..

Code:
procedure TForm1.Button6Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if NOT clipboard.hasformat(CF_BITMAP) then exit;
  image3.picture.Assign(clipboard);
  if sDialog1.Execute then if sDialog1.FileName<>'' then
    image3.Picture.SaveToFile(sDialog1.FileName);  
end;
note, just modified above for spacing reasons..
