I recently got an email with my website within an image of a computer screen. How do they do that? It's hard to believe that someone sits there and goes in photoshop and does that for every email they send out, how do i do it dynamically? How do i take a screen shot of a website providing just the domain name.? Is there any way to do it programatically? thanx all

is it an image or is it the actual webpage? Sometimes they put the web site in an inline frame.

To copy the screen to the clipboard you can do "Shift-Print Scrn" or "Alt-Print Scrn" for just the active window.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'd look into http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/methods/getdata.asp Or using WSH to open a browser application and Word application and the cutting and pasting.

They have a program that just takes a screenshot and put the 4-parted monitor around. The mail you recieved was probably spam.

yeah it was spam, i was trying to use it for my companys purposes. Dynamically take a screen shot of our websites, and then resize them into 5 different images. I wanted to do this with multiple sites.
