Taking screenshots on the iPhone is simple but can be a very useful tool. I use this tool all of the time to describe how things work or describe cool iPhone features to people. The screen captures on the iPhone are saved as 320×480 pixel JPG’s which aren’t super high resolution but it will open in perfect clarity the same size as your iPhone screen.

A friend of mine showed me the Snipit tool on Windows Vista and I really wanted something similar on Windows XP however I was having a hard time locating one by searching for Snipit. After awhile I was able to find a couple of different options to try out on download.com. The two I ended up trying were ScreenHunter and ScreenPrint32 v3 on my Windows XP laptop. After testing both of these I would suggest using ScreenPrint32 v3 instead of ScreenHunter. It appeared to me that while both options were free ScreenHunter Free was an attempt to get you to purchase ScreenHunter Pro. ScreenHunter is also one of those applications that when you install it they attempt to install some shady toolbar in the process. So below I explain the download, install, and configuration of ScreenPrint32 v3 on Windows XP.

  1. Download ScreenPrint32 v3: First download the Screen Print & Capture file from download.com here.

Windows Vista definitely has some hidden gems about itself. I have a Vista box but rarely use it as I do most of my work from my trusty laptop. Today I was doing some work that required Vista and learned of Snipping. Snipping is the ability to take screenshots of any size native with Windows Vista. When you launch Snipping by typing snipping into the start window below Windows main navigation then you can take any size screenshot you want to. What is extra cool about Snipping is the fact that the screen greys out and you get an accurate clear view of what you are actually going to be snipping from Vista’s surface.

I take a lot of screenshots to troubleshoot things or pass images to developers to troubleshoot things. I wish XP had snipping but its just one more small step forward for me to start using Vista. Below I are some images related to snipping.

In the above image you can see the red line around the picture which was the area I specified for the screenshot. You can make screenshots any size you want by dragging a box on the screen to a specify the area of the screenshot to the Snipping application. My personal favorite way of managing these images is to snap them and size them with snipping and manage them with Picasa from Google. Picasa replaces the typical Windows Picture and Fax viewing application and provides a lot more bells and whistles. Here in the next week or so I am going to write about some of the benefits of Picasa.
