PSP can do exactly what you did... Check the Paste options on the edit menu.
You can paste as a new doc or paste as a floating selection, new layer... IT
all a matter of knowing the tools.

SnagIt is what I used on my last project.

However ... at one point, I needed to capture the tool bar of the
application I was documenting. I selected "Region" and got my screen
shot. Due to the nature of the application, not all of the tool bar
icons were active, so I opened a few windows and got two more shots
with the other icons active.

What I wanted was one screen shot with all of the tool bar icons

I tried PaintShop Pro 6.0, and when I selected an icon and tried to
paste it onto one of the tool bars, PSP created a new window for
me--with the copied icon in it.

I tried SnagIt Studio with similar results, and Microsoft's image
editor that comes with HTML Help Workshop with no joy at all--!

I finally ended up compressing the files and sending them to my home
e-mail account ... where I decompressed them and fixed the graphics
with the Mac-only program Graphic Converter.

With Graphic Converter, it was simply a matter of selecting the icon
on the secondary or tertiary tool bar I wanted, copying it, then
pasting it into the screen where the main tool bar was, and
maneuvering the pasted icon into place.

Took all of five minutes for the four or five I had to do this way.

Big question: what package on the PC side of things would've let me do
this with the same ease? ... and no, Photoshop is not an option ($$$).
