Print Screen

The user of my app has asked for the ability to print screen shots of selected screens.  What they really want to do is capture the information on the screen in hard copy format.   In the past I have always addressed this by writing a report that will generate and print the output of what is on the screen.

Now I'm wondering if there is a way to print a screen shot upon request.  I have right click menu's available on most of my screen.  Can I add an option 'Print screen shot'?

If so, how would this work?

I use screenhunter for screen captures

You can program a keyboard shortcut to place a screenshot in your chosen directory any time you want.  These files can have the time and included if you wish.

I'm not sure if you can auto-print files ..... I'll check it out.

There is also a free version of the program with fewer features.
