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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
