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'?

That's fine for the occasional screen shot - problem begins when you have
many of them to include in a document. Seems that PrintScreen captures are
snagged as bitmaps which can consume approximately 10 times the disk space
as a JPEG or GIF of the same graphic.

Could be that you are able to manipulate the image in Paint or PhotoShop to
reduce that size - dunno.
