How to Troubshoot Paint Shop Pro?


When i take a screen capture from a media file using either 'Paint Shop Pro' or 'MGI Photosuite' the resultant image is a black screen, whether in bmp or jpeg format. I had no problems on my previous OS which was Win98se with a trident video card.

In order to use PSP's screen capture within PSP itself you must have two instances of PSP open One to set and activate the screen capture and the other to take the captures from.

Launch PSP from the Start> Programs menu and then repeat that action so you have two versions of PSP open Make the capture settings in one program and do all the tutorials in the second program When you want to capture something in your working copy, maximize the first program and click the capture button All the captures will be kept in the first program and can be labeled there or you can wait until you have made all the captures and then do all the work on the captures in the first program

Uh,just where is that screen capture function?

File > Import > Capture
