    How can I add a screenshot?

    How can I add a screenshot from my Clipboard to a message? I don't see a tag for this, and if I Ctrl-V in my message, it is ignored. Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words...

    You need to paste it into a graphics program such as Paint, the excellent <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Paint.NET - Free Photo Editing Software for Windows or one of your choice. Save it and attach it to a post. Remember the 100KB maximum size limit for attachments.

    Thanks, Joe--both for answering my question and for the link!

    So if I "Attach a file" in the box with that name, will the image show up inline in the message, or will it be an attachment to the message that must be opened to view?
    ( I suppose I could try one and see!)

    Sundog,
    You can also use a small utility called "HoverSnap".
    Just hit CTRL+Printscreen and it will bring up a cross hair. You outline the area for the screenshot, just like cropping a pic and it will save it to a location of your choice.
    Then in your post just browse to the location and that's it. No need to import or whatever.

    It's <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> at HOVERSNAP

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks, Bob! I use SnagIt at work, and will save to a file for Lounge screenshots. At home, I will definitely investigate HoverSnap.

    In closing, Uff Da!

    There are plenty of others - see the thread starting at <post#=595,580>post 595,580</post#> on the Software Finds and Wants board. My favourite is FastStone Capture - if it's good enough for <img src=/S/hansv.gif border=0 alt=HansV width=27 height=26> it's good enough for me.

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    There's also a <!post=Starpost,270,762>Starpost<!/post> addressing your question; odd that no-one mentioned it.
