    This piece of software is free to download. It's a small app and takes seconds to download. Using this tool you can select any area of your display screen (monitor) and you get an instant screen-grab of the selected area. I use it at work all the time and it automatically saves any images you grab, into the folder of your choice (or the desktop, if you prefer). You can use it to take 'shots' of anything on the web or anything on your display screen . . e.g. if you are browsing your photos and view them as extra large icons, you can use lightscreen to select the image at the precise size you are viewing it at.

    Just remember that if you are posting (on TES) screen grabs from your device, that you use the 'Upload a File' option located at the bottom of your post.

    It's very handy for people who have pics they would like to post, but can't find a way to resize huge files.

    Does it work with tablets? My iPad doesn't let me do lots of things I would like to do!

    I'm not sure, foxtail, let me look into it . . but there is an iPad app you can use (you may already have it on your device) called DispRecorder

    I don't appear to have a snipping tool @marlin, so it would be useful for me

    I just wondered if there were any benefits to Kibosh's suggested app over the snipping tool.
