Jerre Beal asked for information about software for screen captures and
hypertext. I was unable to directly post to the address given so here's
I use Hijaack Pro for Windows for screen captures. It allows you to set
up a hot key to use which is very nice. Hijacck then will allow you to
crop, rotate, resize, trace, change fonts, chg. colors, adjust
brightness/contrast, make the image grayscale, invert colors, etc. It will
also convert the image to any type of image imaginable. You can use it
for Windows screens, DOS screens or printer output. I don't know if
they have a MAC version.
Regarding hypertext tools, would you please copy me also? I am just
getting into this area and would appreciate any help you could pass on.
