Forgive the ignorance, but how does one use Photoshop for screen captures?
There's nothing in the help index on this topic....

Briefly, some of the benefits include:

* Being able to capture portions of the interface (such as those pesky
non-modal windows)
* Being able to capture only interface elements, such as a button or cursor
* Applying properties to the screenshot when it's taken (such as resolution
or colour depth), which presumably saves time later.
* Some programs, such as FullShot 99, include a Windows Explorer-type tree
view that enables you to view and organize your images more easily.

Ultimately, all of these benefits could be executed with MS Paint or, more
preferably, PhotoShop. Basically I've found that products like FullShot or
SnagIt just make my life a little easier. Thanks. DB.

Hi,

For years, I've been just hitting 'Print Screen' then dumping the screen
copy
into a MS Paint or PhotoShop. Are there any particular benefits to using
actual
'screen capture software'?

Mike
