I don't know if this will help you.

I write PC/Windows documentation, and I take pretty pictures of the screen
with a tool called FullShot. It can "shoot" a picture of the screen, and
save it as:


It also will translate color to black and white, according to your
specifications. I have found it to be the _handiest_ program I've ever found.
It's from InBit software, at about $100 u.s. fund.

You can get a fully functioning demo (save/paste is disabled in the demo)
of this off of anonymous ftp at:
cd pub/win3/demo

Hope this helps!
