So...what I am looking for is a screen capture program that can be run
from a diskette without installing it on the PC.
John, my installation of FullShot occupies only 741 Kb, so I don't see
why it couldn't be run from a floppy. FullShot captures can be directed
to the FullShot window, a printer, the clipboard, a file, or any
combination of the above. If directed to a file, the filename can be
automatically incremented, or it can be based on the time, or you can be
prompted for a name. You can save in all kinds of formats, you can
crop, frame, and matte. You can capture the mouse pointer or hide it.
You can capture the screen, active window, any rectangular region, the
active title bar and menu, or a freehand area. You can reduce colors
from 24-bit all the way down to B&W, and you can specify which colors
get changed to black and which to white. In spite of its few bugs,
FullShot remains my first choice for a screen capture program. Oh, you
can also import graphics and convert to other formats. See
www.inbit.com -- you can download it there. Tell'em John Wilcox sent
you -- maybe they'll give me the next upgrade free. :o)
