How to make a Website Screenshot for Advertising on the pcMedix Web Group of Websites:

A "screenshot" is a snapshot of what's on your computer's screen. You can take a screenshot of your website and then create a thumbnail image of it for advertising on our "Featured Website Image Link" ads. The maximum thumbnail image size is 150 pixels x 150 pixels.

To create your screenshot follow these steps:

  1. The first step is to create the window of your website that you want to capture and leave it up on the monitor.
  2. Just to the top-right of your keyboard, you will see a key labelled "PrtScrn". Pressing "PrtScrn" (PrintScreen) by itself places an image of the entire desktop on the clipboard. Pressing "Alt-PrintScreen" ("Alt-PrtScrn") places an image of the frontmost window on the clipboard.
  3. If you press "PrtScrn", nothing will appear to have happened. However, your computer just took a snapshot of its screen and stored that picture on its clipboard, the same way that it stores information that you cut and paste.
  4. Then open MS-Paint (from Start/Run, issue the command "mspaint".) Now you will create a new empty image, and use Edit/Paste to bring in the screenshot you just took. When you create a new empty image, use "resize" to change its dimensions to your desired size, and then Paste in your screenshot. When resizing you should uncheck the little box "Maintain Aspect Ratio".
  5. Once you've created your image use MS-Paint's "Save As" command, selecting the .GIF format for thumbnails, or .PNG as the file format for larger screenshots.


  • On Windows Vista & Windows 7 (all editions) you can use the "Snipping Tool" to capture a screenshot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image. It is a screencap application that is much better then other versions of Windows built-in Alt-PrintScreen. But the tool is difficult to find - it's located in "All Programs -- Accessories , but you can just type "Snipping Tool" in the search bar in the Windows menu bar. The first time you run it it will ask if you want to add it to your quick launch bar. It's also self-explanatory when you open it. You can still use the "PrtScrn" command in these versions of Windows if you prefer.
  • Instead of using MS Paint you could also use Word, or some other word processing or imaging program, you can paste the image into it. You can then save the Word document and email it as an attachment.
  • You may also be able to paste the image directly into an email if you wish, depending on what type of email program you have. (Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express & Thunderbird can do this, for example.)
  • If you press "Alt and the PrtScrn" keys together, the computer will take a snapshot of the currently active window ONLY. This can save some space in the editor you're using, a Word document or in an email.
  • This procedure works on all versions of Windows: Win95, Win98, WinME, WinNT and Win2000, XP, 2003, VISTA & Windows 7.
