Screen captures- How do you do it?

Recommended Posts

How do you do screen captures in FS2002? Do you have to use special software? Is there any freeware out there that does it?Thanks!

I use these steps..it's a fun process for me...I capture the shot in FS by hitting the Printscreen key, then pause the sim.I open up a paint program (I have a few, but I'm partial to an old 16-bit program that shipped with my 10 yr old scanner), and I paste the pic into the paint program.I then crop it.... I prefer to keep my pic sizes to around 640x480, as it's easier to upload them on my dial-up connection. By cropping (as opposed to shrinking), I can keep the detail of the picture's subject. I usually compress the pic at a jpg level of 85 pct... That leaves the pic well below Avsim's and Flightsimnetwork's file size limits....Happy photography!-John

Frank Cubillos pointed out a great program called Grabber2k. Ever since I have been using it I have been addicted... I think its the best screenshot program out there.Here is a URLhttp://www.webattack.com/get/grabber2k.shtmlYou can simply minimize it to the tray and to take a screenshot just press the print screen button and it will take as many as u like. It can also save them automatically which makes it really niceBrandon
