    could someone recommend a good screen capture software?
    easy to use and not very expensive.

    thanks!

    Free and easy to use: the PrintScreen key + MS Paint.

    What I use and recommend to anyone, Snagit:

    Depends on what you're looking to do. Static screen captures, Video Screen Captures, or actually making presentations out of what you're capturing.

    1. Basic Screen Capture - ALT PrintScreen, Paste into your graphic editor.

    2. AVI screen caputues (motion) - HyperCam

    3. Interactive/Presentational - MacroMedia Captivate.

    Hope that helps a little.

    It's good once in a while to find something that's free and already on your computer. I press the PrintScreen button and then paste into MS Word (any text editor should work).

    I like Irfanview, too.

    Snag It V8.0 is the best. http://www.techsmith.com

    You can capture not just the Screen or Regions of the Screen, but full Web Pages via a single capture (it auto-scrolls) with the option to keep the Link Information with the capture, Auto Snap Shots (Timer), Text Snap Shots, Web Page to PDF and much more.

    The build in editor is geared towards the typical use of Screen shots, demonstrations and documentations. It has various highlighting features.

    A real bargain for $39.95
