    that will let you cut out a section of your desktop (by freehand)?

    Most screen capture programs that I've seen will capture the whole screen or an active window or rectangular area but I haven't seen any that allow you to FREEHAND SELECT an area.

    If anyone can reccomend a program that does this, I would appreciate it very much.

    Thanks :)

    I would think that it would be easier to take a screenshot of a larger rectangular area, then manually cut the part you want in an image editor.

    I got this link from Dreamboat! If you do a lot of Screen captures, then it might be worth you while. I'm cheap, do infrequent captures (maybe 3-5 times a week) so will continue using my Print Scrn key.

    Thanx Debe.

    I just downloaded it, and tried it, and think that David will be most pleased with it.

    I like the price!!:D

    Thanks for the link to the screen capture program! Downloaded, setup and tried. Will take a bit of getting used to since I always used the standard windows method but this new program will certianly fit the bill.
