    Re: Screen Capture

    Thanks, but what would you use the "HTML Help authoring tool" for?

    I don't use it for anything. You can use it to create Help files for applications, however, I downloaded it just for the other tool, the HTML Help Image Editor.

    That's all I use it for.

    My bad. "With it you can create Help Files in HTML Format" is, I think, the answer to my question. Thanks.

    Screen Capture

    Here's a thought. For those of you looking for a screen capture application, Microsoft has a free one. You may already have it on an MSDN CD, however, it is called the HTML Help Workshop. It has an HTML Help authoring tool and more important, a Free screen capture utility called the HTML Help Image Editor.

    You can capture entire screens, active windows, objects, include the mouse pointer, etc. You can save as GIF or JPG, but use GIF. You'll get a much smaller file size. The package is easy to use, and makes good graphics for both print and online documentation.

    FWIW

    Other options available and recommended in this forum are:

    Hardcopy: A very good, purpose designed, screen capture program.

    IrFan View: A very good and fast multi-media file viewer and converter

    Both of these tools are available for free and give you a very good toolkit for capturing images and playing with the various graphics formats.

    I recommend using BMP(RLE) as the screen capture graphic format for the free version of Hardcopy, or GIF for the registered version.

    Re: Screen Capture

    Your link points to the whole HTML Help package. I couldn't find any reference to the '...Image Editor' as a separate entity.

    I've had downloaded the package previously, but haven't installed it as yet. I couldn't find any reference in my download references to the 'Editor'.

    Is there a way to find just that piece or do you have to install the entire package to find it?
