Paint Shop Pro from  Jasc also has a good screen/window/object capture.  Typically, I
would run my desktop at 2048x1536, then grab what I want.  I've found that saving the
grabbed screen in '.png' (Portable Network Graphics) offers the best compression
without any detail loss whatsoever.

| Try using Snagit from www.techsmith.com. It's great for capturing a portion
