How Can I Do Screenshots?

I want to know how to capture my own screenshots from my DVD's for my computer.

If I don't have the right equipment can I get it and how much or how long to download and where?

Install PowerDVD. It can do screencaps right from the software, ant it's usually really cheap to buy.

PowerDVD 4


PowerDVD 5


Of course, you can also use shareware programs that will do the trick, ie, capture express. Unfortunately, the free version is no longer available.

Why don't you do that w/ a movie playing, pause it, and post a pic of it?

For the last time, video plays on a different layer than pics, which print scrn can't capture. Print scrn is for inanimated pics only.

Ah. I've always wondered why I couldn't take a printscreen and bring it over to Photoshop.
