“Screenshot Freeware – Family History Update”

Donald R. Snow

Categories: S, IR

Talk Abstract:
Anything you can see on your computer screen can usually be captured to save. This includes articles, diagrams, photos, pedigree charts, etc. This class will discuss how to do this with some free and inexpensive programs. The information can be on one screen or on an entire scrolling window and the program will capture it all. The format in which to save the screenshot depends on things such as the purpose for saving it, the content, and the resolution. The files need to be named so you can tell what’s in them and find them later on your computer. This will be illustrated with demonstrations and examples. The class notes and related articles, all with active Internet links, are on Don’s website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html .
