I'm glad you mentioned how to snip using your computer. A lot of people don't know that Windows 7 and Mac OSX already have it built in. Great tips.

Cool, didn't know that. I would have taken a screen shot, opened paint, pasted, cut, open new doc, repaste, and save as a jpg.... Yep.

I never knew the snipping tool existed. Thank you for the tip.

I'm still not sure how to use the snipping tool. For example, I chose a GIF I get
file:///C:/Users/xxxx/Pictures/Bealls12.21.11.GIF
The xxxx represent my personal info via this computer. How do I eliminate that? Plus it saves as a file, not http. In options I have the "include URL below snips (HTML only)" box checked, but I don't see any URL.
Thanks for any help.

What if the URL page is in PDF format? Do we still have to use snipping tool?

in my opinion non-pdf are so much easier to open, but pdf are so much more neatly laid out and easier to print. oh well. i'm sure people will figure it out eventually haha

@glwrks... For snipping tool, you'll have to upload it as a file. You can upload it through the "Image Upload" tab and find the GIF file which in your case is C:/Users/xxxx/Pictures/Bealls12.21.11.GIF. It is safe to upload it to our site as we cannot do anything with your personal info.

@MrBklynW.... Yes, even if the URL is in PDF format, we recommend using the snipping tool.

I personally recommend using cropper (most of us MODs use it), its simple and much easier.
