    I don't like the way Paint saves jpegs though, it messes with the quality of the picture.
    prefer png personally, but jpg works just fine when size really matters. sepherum2ya, what would you normally use, gif??

    as for paint, can't stand it...
    Gimp works much better for my needs :)
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    That depends on what software your using to save it in.
    With MS paint the quality gets lowered dramaticly if saved as gif.
    To the point it's irritating to look at even with non important crap pics.

    You get this small white dots clottered all over.. Just look at this shot compressed as gif with MS paint.

    Btw, can anyone skilled explain to me why paint compress gif pictures to be more than twize the size as the same shot compressed in jpg..:?:
    How can it be so much bigger and still got less colors..

    Funny I've never had a prob with Paint but I've been usin' Paintshop Pro 7 for quite some time now and the same instructions work with that as well. Beer in my glass atm.

    When you use a program such as FRAPS or Clipper to take screenshots, i'm assuming it uses the same code as Paint to save the image and would give the same quality?

    Or am I wrong...

    I use Gif's most the time. I own Adobe Photoshop 7. (Yes It's actually actually legal)

    Not sure if they use the same code / technique as Paint or not, but Paint does seem to save pictures with a lesser quality than PSP or Photoshop.. from my experience anyways.
