How do I make screenshots from G-max?

I see these fabulous screenies from other people's projects and I want to make a record of my own projects, but I don't know where the pictures go when I push "print screen". I'm currently using XP, if that makes a difference.
Thanks for your time.

one way, that is kind of crude, but works is when you hit print screen, open up like MS paint, or an image program, and paste the image into the program. do the nessesscary changes to the image to make it .Jpeg or .Jpg. Then do the nessesscary things for uploading it to a host site and host it here!

LVMan's suggestion is pretty much the only way of doing it. When you hit PrintScrn it copies the screenshot to your Windows clipboard and it's then up to you to paste it into a graphics application and save it. The second you hit PrintScrn again, or Ctrl+C, or right-click something and select "Copy" then that's it, your screenshot is gone from the clipboard forever.

Ideally if you can get hold of Photoshop or the GIMP (freeware) and paste it into that then you'll have a lot more options than you would in MS Paint.

I like to use the free printscreen program by Gadwin at www.gadwin.com
It's a handy little program that you can designate what folder the screen image is saved to.

Thanks, guys, it's a good start. Can anyone tell me where or how to find the clipboard in WinXP?
I'm sure it's something easy and obvious, but I'm not seeing it.
For processing, I mostly use PhotoFiltre. I also have Irfanview for working with tga files, but I'm not as comfortable in that program.
Thanks for the help so far.

Edit: Found it! It's a system tool, of course! And here I thought something to display graphic files might be with the graphics. How silly of me.

At long last.

For future reference, PhotoFiltre won't open clp files. Here's my test picture.

I'm currently building a bogey for a JNR Kiha 200. Getting the textures to come out right is a pain, but I'm making slow progress. When I get farther along, I'll start a thread in Freeware Announcements.
Thanks for telling me what to look for and pointing toward your favorite proccessing programs. You were a big help.:D
