Screen capturing is a widely used technique to create images from a screen display. The process takes the content of a screen and “captures” it so that the capture can be used as an image. For instance, the diagrams in this chapter that show actual windows and tools from Photoshop Elements were all created using screen capturing. Screen capturing in Photo-shop Elements works like the copy and paste functions—when performing a screen cap-ture, the image is copied to the clipboard until it is pasted into a document.
Press the Print Screen key on the keyboard, found above the Delete and Insert keys, to capture the entire screen area. Pressing this button copies the screen contents to the clip-board. Open a new image in Photoshop Elements. The default dimensions for the new image are the same as the screen capture on the clipboard. Then paste the screen capture into the new image. (Alt+Print Screen captures only the active window).
