Anybody know of a instant screenshot program?

I know there is 'print screen', but this is quite annoying, because you have to manually paste the picture into Power point, then save it as a picture. I would like to know a way so that when I print screen,  the computer automatically saves the picture in My Pictures. Does anyone know of a device/plugin/software that does this? If so, give me a link? 

Much appreciated, Mike.

You could use Jing, it's not exactly what you meant but it's convenient. It's a desktop icon that stays on top of all your web browsers (ha-ha, don't EVEN say it, DJ) so you can always capture your screen, or a selection.

I've been using printkey since...gads, since forever now I guess...maybe 1990-something...the last installment I think is/was Printkey2000. It's standalone, so no need for a browser.

Can it do selections like this ?

Exit browser? why? it runs in the background once fired up. And I don't need to have Firefox running to use it, which imo is a blessing. Firefox has become an unstable program I'd rather avoid whenever possible. The only reason I still have it is for testing purposes while developing web content

If your using win 7 you already have a programme loaded called "Snipping tool." You may need to search for it.
