Hi Tom

I have taken five screenshots of all of the LO apps, Base, Calc, Draw, Impress, Math and Writer, side by side two versions, with showing the differences on the default start-up screens. I'm just waiting for a confirmation of registration from Nabble as I have just signed up.

I will post all five screenshots (.jpg, not .png, allowing all five of them to be only 1.45MB in total size) on Nabble and then email the link.

Hi :)
Ok, we have the 4.1.0 screenshots but now would like a comparison with an earlier version of LO, 
either 3.6.x or 4.0.x = still on on Win7.

Imgur might well be better for taking screen-shots on Win7.  I didn't know about it.  It sound shed 
loads better! :)

The Alt+PrintScreen worked on the older Windows method of pasting into another app if you prefer to still 
use that old method.  The Alt+PrintScreen also works in the default Gnu&Linux systems which all seem to 
be a lot more sophisticated than the old Windows way.  There are several apps to choose from in 
Gnu&Linux.  The Docs Team experimented with a few before deciding on which one to recommend to their 
new members.  I'm not sure if Imgur has a time-delay setting and all that sort of thing.  It might do.

Anyway the point is that Win7 does have a nice screen-shot app but it's just a bit hidden.  
Whichever way you take a screen-shot of 3.6.x or 4.0.x on Win7 is probably fine with the Marketing

PS : Using the Windows screenshot tool, found under «Accessories» is, in my
   opinion, far superior to the keyboard technique you mention above....

​Keyboard shortcut aren't that bad if your objective is to upload pics to

A quick and efficient way of doing it is to use imgur:
- Open imgur, select "web upload"
- Capture *only* the currently active windows (by pressing Alt+PrintScreen)
- ​Go to the imgur window, press Ctrl+V to directly *paste* into the
website :)

You can repeat the two final steps to put as many screenshot as you need;
when done press "Start Upload" in the imgur window and tadaa. It actually
avoid the need to create temporary image files on your computer, and
provide you with public links.

Of course I only cited imgur as an example, there is probably other service
that handle pasting images nicely.

I know I'm coming after the battle here, but it's a nice trick to know for
sending screenshot all around, and surely future versions of LO will also
need new screenshots :)
