Just remembered another thing I love about PaintshopPro and which seems to be little used or mentioned. That is the screen capture function. I looked up Photoshop screencapture and all the methods mentioned there suggest using the keyboard Print Screen or Xontrol Print Screen. And as recent as 10 months ago someone made a wish list for a screen capture in Photoshop. *** it up Photoshoppers ( in case you didn't realise I hate Photoshop!!)
Painshop Pro has its own built in screen capture ability which can also capture the cursor which Print Screen does not do. And we have had this ability since Paintshop Pro 8 at least and according to wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paint_Shop_Pro
that has ben since April 2003 . (Three cheers - nah, nah, ne ,nah. na - Photoshop - [in case you did not realise I am fanatical about Paintshop Pro.])
For those unfamiliar here is how it works:
1. File ->Import -> Screen Capture -> Setup. And the following dialog box shows. http://i477.photobucket.com/albums/rr140/hartpaul/PSPX2screencapturedialog.jpg
This shows my setup and as you can see it has captured the cursor as well.
2. when the set up is complete click OK . Then Shift C to activate. The PSP window minimises leaving you free to set up a page . web page . program and when ready hit Shift F1 (Function 1) key to activate. (You can go to Help Keyboard Map to see if other hot keys are available)
3. The web page complete with cursor then appears in Paintshop Pro ready for editing, as any other image.
I captured this image from PSPX2 using PSP8 running concurrently - they do not seem to interfere with each other - ain't Paintshop Pro great???
