TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
My experience has been that screen print and Paint works fine, particularly
for use in on-line and PDF documents.
There is a utility called Corel Capture that gives you a lot more control
over the process (file size, format, etc.) and sends the screen grab
directly to a file, so you can take a series of grabs non-stop. Among other
things, you can give the files a naming convention (cap1) and the program
will automatically name the files as you go (cap2, cap3, etc.)
I hope this is helpful.

> At my new job, I have to find software that handles

> 2) If not, is there any such thing as software to do
