Peter Hakenberg has a solution to his  screendump question:

A more elegant alternative is the use of the excellent shareware
"CDEV" (or extension) utility called "Flashit". You can configure
this utility to capture all or only part of the screen image,
by default it will wait for you to drag the cursor over the part
you desire -- unless you depress the shift-lock key first which
will give you the entire window, and you have the choice of saving
it to the clipboard, the scrapbook, or to a document file of the
application of your choosing (e.g., NIH-Image), depending on
which user-selected key combination that you press. It is available
from the Sumex archives (
Hope this helps,
