I've been trying to make a few icons and wallpapers from an anime, using Photoshop 7. Problem is, I've no idea how to make a screencap and when I press the Print Scrn button, it goes all wierd. The clip keeps playing with the file, and I can't seem to edit it. Do you use some kind of special program? A Codex of some sort?
Er, yeah, help. _________________ "First learn the rules of English. Then you can go about breaking it."

Some video programs use DirectX, negating the ability to capture anything but the bottom layer of the image. Check the software you're watching the video in for a built-in screen capture menu option. _________________
If you have two computers with ViVo, hook them up together, and use the first compy to capture the display of the second compy, which is playing the video. Pause at the desired moment, then press PRINT-SCREEN or whichever key that's for the built-in video capturing software.
If you DO actually try that kind of setup, I want photos.

What precisely are you attempting to capture? You may be able to actually find a still somewhere. _________________ The Average Woman Would Rather Have Beauty Than Brains Because The Average Man Can See Better Than He Can Think
