Intro: Better Way to Get Screenshots
Ever need to get a lot of screen shots, but you're not super sharp at photoshop/mspaint/gimp? Don't fret, ScreenHunter is here to help!
Step 1: Download the ScreenHunter Free
Step 2: Install Program
Run the .exe to install the program. If you need more instruction than that, just give up now on becoming a productive member of society.
When the program is running, you'll see a hand icon in the tray area on the start bar. Double click this to change your settings.
Step 3: Configure ScreenHunter
Click on the From button to configure how you want to obtain your screen shots. The rectangular area mode allows you to drag a custom selection of the screen. Active window mode surprisingly grabs only the active window. I'm not sure what full screen does, perhaps it opens the drink holder on your computer.
Click on the To tab to configure where your screen shots will be saved. You can copy it to the clipboard, save it to a file, or do both, or do neither I suppose, but that doesn't seem very useful.
Click the button next to the Automatic radio button to set up the filename scheme. Here you can add a prefix, a suffix, the date, time, etc. to the filename. Hit OK when your done.
Finally click on the Advanced tab. Here you can enable/disable sounds, pop up messages, etc.
Step 4: Take a Screenshot.
Now just hit the hotkey you configured and take your boring screen shots.
Just a note, when in rectangular mode, you click and hold on the first point of your image, drag your mouse to the opposite corner of your image, then release. Just one click, not two.
