Snipping Tool Help Please

Hello,
I have used the snipping to to make screen shots for this forum using attachments. I have a problem in Firefox and I want their forum to see what I have captured. They don't have the attachment feature like you do here. I can't seem to copy and paste it either. Can you help me with this? Thanks,
John

John,
Others here may have the answer, but it may be best to go to that Forum and ask how to send an attachment.

Easiest would be to upload the picture to something like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, etc; and then just post the link from it.

If you have MS Office 2007 you can use alt-print Screen to capture the currently opened screen and paste it into MS Publisher. Once pasted you can right mouse click on the image and it allows you so Save as photo with .PNG being the DEFAULT but using the arrow down will reveal .jpg as the alternative. You can then attach it to email and send it or if you need to post it to the forum as a link you would need a web repository like Photobucket, the alternative would be post the screen shot here then Link the screen shot to the Firefox Forum.

Long time ago, I posted instructions for the purpose on another forum. Maybe you can use that method.

My snipping tool is acting up. :cry: I click the icon (on task bar) and it starts to glow a reddish colour and flashes slowly. Maybe about 1/2 a minute later, the snipping tool window opens and then again, sometimes it doesn't open at all. I was trying to snip an email pic in Outlook. I had to...
