I have done thousands of screen grabs but I am confused by your comment
that the X-Ray machine displays VGA color. On any windows based
computer, a smack on the print screen button will copy the contents of
what's on the screen to the clipboard where in may be easily pasted into
any bitmap editor such as Photoshop, Corel's PhotoPaint, Painter,
Picture Publisher, etc. It can even be pasted into the little paint
utility that ships with windows and saved from there. I guess I don't
get what you are saying. Could you be more specific?
