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:
- The first step is to create the window of your website that you
want to capture and leave it up on the monitor.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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".
- 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
- 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
- This procedure works on all versions of Windows: Win95, Win98,
WinME, WinNT and Win2000, XP, 2003, VISTA & Windows 7.
