    I am trying to make a label for a home produced DVD. Using PowerDVD and
    PaintShop Pro 8 I have managed to capture a screen image of the part I want
    to use but I can't do anything with it. It saves as a blank image, altho
    it's there on the screen. I have tried the various combinations of layers
    but with no luck. Can anyone tell me how to convert this into a gif or jpg
    image I can then save and edit later?
    Btw, when I move the indow containing the captured image, the image stays
    still and the window pans around it, never seen that before...???

    TIA for any help

  2. The dvd image is an overlay so you are capturing the image behind it. (I
    In your dvd program, there will be a button you can press that will capture
    the image and save it to your hard drive.

    You can't capture images from a movie using alt-print screen and then save
    it to jpeg or gif, has nothing to do with PSP.
    You have to use a utilty, the saved bitmap can be imported in PSP and
    converted to jpeg. Go here:

    Thanks Gaz, why didn't I think of that??? PowerDVD does have a save frame
    option and it worked fine (once I found it!)

    p.s. I wasn't using print screen to capture the image, I was using PSP's
    screen capture utility which usually works, obviously not for DVD's tho, we
    live and learn.

    Thanks again
