What is the best way to pose scenes for pictures in Minecraft? Is there a mod that lets you place and pose creepers and cows and zombies, and move the camera around? [more inside]

Apple-Shift-3 not working and Rory is sad :-(

I'm trying to hotlink a button to take in-game screenshots on my Macbook Pro with Boot Camp running Windows 7. But every application I try seems to miss the game playing entirely! It shows the desktop and other running applications and not the game at all. I've tried MWSnap 3, Screenshot Utility 1.0, and Screenshot Pilot. They all failed. How do I take screenshots of this video game, before I lose my mind?

Help me take screenshots with Snagit 10

Help me screencap. I'm trying to use SnagIt 10, but I can't get it to take screenshots, either with the big red button or with the Print Screen key. Once I select the big red button it just runs in the background but doesn't take the screencap. The Print Screen key does nothing at all. This is on Windows 7. Other open apps are IE, Outlook, Communicator, Pidgin, Excel and Word. Any ideas?

Where can I find AOL (circa 1994) screenshots?

I am looking for a depository of old AOL/Compuserve/Prodigy screenshots, ideally from 1993-1998. Even better -- I'd love to find & run these actual programs on a modern computer. Where can I get screenshots, and where can I find the old versions of these programs/a way to run them?

Is there a way to bookmark sites with corresponding screenshots?

I have a LOT of bookmarks for craft tutorials, supply places, etc. Often I can remember what the page of a tutorial looked like but can't remember what it was called, or even sometimes what it was about. ("There was this project that I remember thinking was really cool at the time... the site was really purple...") Is there a Firefox plug-in, Mac application, AIR application, or online service that lets you bookmark sites with corresponding screenshots? Thanks!

Automatic Screenshots from a DVD

Automatic screenshots from a DVD? I know how to take individual screengrabs from a a movie with VLC or Media Player Classic -- but I'd like to get a whole bunch at once. Is there windows software that will let me set an interval and extract a series of screenshots automatically?

Saving & Organizing Screenshots

I am trying to come up with a way to save and organize screen shots pulled from web pages. I don't have any issues with obtaining the screen shots, my problem is that I can't think of a simple way of getting the images online in an organized manner. Ideally I would like to just be able to grab a region of a web page, paste in into an application, tag it or rename it or whatever, submit it and be done with it. I have XP at work and OS X at home. Although not mandatory it would be nice if I could follow the same process of saving/organizing the images from either location. Does anyone have any ideas?

Internet Explorer screenshot generator

I remember finding a web site for that generated screenshots of web pages as they appear in Apple's Safari browser. Well I'm a Mac user and I just found out my web page is broken in IE. I need something that will generate screenshots of my site as it is seen by IE. (I can't use Internet Explorer for Mac because it is even more broken than its Windows counterpart.)

How can I legally publish game screenshots in a book?

I'm considering writing a book about game systems in the 80's and would like to be able to include screenshots of many of the games. What do I need to do to be able to include those screenshots without being sued? Does this fall under the copyright law's "fair use"? Does the fact that they are older games make any difference? Apologies if this has been asked before - I couldn't find anything related to publishing game screenshots.

Ancient Computer Screenshots

Each year I try to teach some computer history to my 5th graders, just to put all the technology into a little bit of context. It would be tremendously helpful if I could show them actual screenshots of what computer programs used to look like. Specifically, I've looked for screenshots of Viscalc (some success, but lousy shots), early amber-on-black word processing, and pre-www internet (PINE, Usenet, etc.) Anybody know of a good place for this stuff? Other related suggestions welcome.

Taking screenshots of video?

Anyone know of the best way to take screenshots of video on a PC? I notice that DVDs and mpegs and avis all seem to do a weird matte screen thing where video is projected "above" the video player on your screen, so all screengrabs are blank. There must be a hack to get a simple grab every now and then off this sort of video. Anyone ever figure this out?

Is there a website compiling framegrabs of computer screens in feature films?

Is there a website compiling framegrabs of computer screens in feature films? In other words, a photo gallery including Jeff Goldblum's Mac virus from Independence Day, Matthew Broderick's terminal in Wargames, the 3D filesystem in Jurassic Park, Scotty's "transparent aluminum" GUI in Star Trek IV, and so on.

I find it hard to believe this doesn't exist on the Internet. (If it doesn't, then I'm going to start it right away.)

Free or cheap screen capture?

I'm working on a computer manual, and my publisher needs me to take a lot of screenshots. She says they must be 6 inches wide and 300ppi. I don't know of any screen capture programs that can do this. I'm on a PC, and I need an app I can quickly get my hands on (i.e. downloadable) -- preferably free or cheap.
