Screen shots and portfoliosViews: 709

Could someone please tell me how to create screen shots? I think that's what you call the pictures of a web page, like what you'd see on a portfolio page.

In the past, I've always just used a list of references and links to work I've done when someone wanted to see examples of my work. But it does seem easier to have an online portfolio.

Which do you use, and which do you think works better?

Vanessa -

Simple screen shots can be captured on a Windows system using the PrtSc Button (PrintScreen), and then pasting into your favorite image system, or MS Word, Paintbrush, etc.

You can also do simple view / crop with Microsoft Picture editor.

This is kind of rudimentary and works for basic stuff, but not too well, and not too many options.

I prefer to use SnagIt from Techsmith. (Release 9 is latest) It allows capture of 'scrolling' web pages that may be longer than 1 page, and you can specify regions if you only want a portion of a page.


I have also used JASC Paintshop Pro in the past which is very nice but a bit more costly.

If you only have a few to do and don't want to invest at this time in software PM me with details and I'm willing t do a few for you.

Anyone else know of any other options - maybe freeware?

Hello Folks.

Good suggestions Hank. I have not tried techsmith but will
have a look see.

I use screenshot8 to take snapshots of client web pages -
save to my hard drive and I can have those viewable when
working on any project for them. It's very easy and fairly
inexpensive too. I have never tried to capture more than
what I need or for scrolling pages - I mostly just need
tidbits here and there.

Around 50.00


You may be able to find it cheaper on Ebay or Amizon.

Eileen :D

Thanks Hank. That "print screen" function was what I remembered reading and had forgotten. Now that I've tried it I see what you mean about limited function. For now, it's probably enough for me to get an idea until I decide which way to go. But I will investigate SnagIt from Techsmith. Thanks for the tip and the offer. :)

Thanks Eileen. I will also look at screenshot8. I'm not sure if I need any program yet, but I appreciate the suggestions. It's good to have a starting point. :)
