screenshots hermes msg:390341 1:07 pm on Sep 11, 2005 (gmt 0) I would like to make a guide to a certain website. That is I want to take screenshots of the different pages of the website and then make annotations (comments) on these screenshots. These following guides to the paypal website are the kind of thing I would like to replicate:
But, 1) How do I take screenshots?
2) What tool can I use to make the annotations on these screenshots?
Would be so grateful for some help.

alt-shift-PrintScrn, then paste it into the graphics editor of your choice. tntpower msg:390345 5:45 pm on Sep 19, 2005 (gmt 0)
You must clarify if you just want several screenshots or hundreds of thousands.
For the 1st case, just print the screen or use screen capture software, many choices. For the 2nd case, it's much more difficult. You need a robot to do this. You have to options:
1) writie a brower that can directly read html and output image--I think it's much much beyond your budget.
2) Write a robot to let your browser (IE, firefox, etc) to surf those websites and print those pages into files. Still a very challenging job.

I personally use a program called 5 Clicks and it seems to get the job done for me. As for the boxes and arrows, a simple graphics program such as paint can be used for simple ones. Prolific msg:390347 6:54 pm on Sep 19, 2005 (gmt 0)
[ ...] google.com
first result should do the trick.
