Works the same way....clips on the site works the same way, just play with prnt scrn and paint....And thanks for the compliment :) counts for everyone around here I guess. ;) .I've learned it all here, in our own warm family school of wild loyalists wich I am so proud of ;)

Thank you for the WONDERFUL topic!!

You are welcome for the topic. You can see that I am learning so much from it too. I hope others are....those who are lurking, for instance.

I will try this with clips from youtube. I'll let you know how it turns out!!!!

Thanks again for all the tips.

Well, I was not successful. That's ok - will keep trying. I was trying to do a screencapture from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUdq0UoC4dI

When you use the Print Screen function - do you use the CTRL function also? In other words, you hit CTRL and hold it down while you hit "Print Screen"?

Also, when I then go to Paint, I don't know how to put the image that I i have just created into paint. What do I type there or click or whatever to get the image into paint?

Sorry to be so dense, but that's just the way I am.....:-)

Thanks for your patience.

I don't use the CTRL button only PRINT SCREEN button.. and you are not dense!! I have forgotten to tell that you have to past the pic into paint.. When you used Prt Scrn,
open Paint, in the left upper corner you'll see clipboard...click on it and choose paste...then you can cut it the way you like, if necessary you can paste your cutted pic in a new file and change the format into pixels..
Hope it will work.
Lots of love,

GREAT video and song, Caty. Such a beautiful melody he wrote. I would hope music is soothing his soul now during his tough times.

I am trying to find out the meaning of the song Eau d'leo and it translates to 'Leo's Water' Eau is cologne?
It's an ode to Leo Kottke, as far as I know, correct me of I'm wrong please! RDA loves his guitar music. ..
That's right. Leo Kottke was his ideal in playing the guitar.
And I hope, you didn't get me wrong, I only postet the link to the video, I didn't make it.
Can't make such wonderful things :-(

I'm getting close. I got the print screen/paste functions in Paint. But I can't seem to get rid of the white space around the photo even though I crop the photo......sigh.

Ok, thanks, Caty. Here goes:

Yay! That takes away the white border area but the photo is huge. And I did use the clipping tool. I will keep trying but you all have got me going in the right direction!
Thanks again, Lies and Caty.
