If your manuscript includes instruction for using a specific or specialized software, you may wish to take screen captures that demonstrate how to input information or run certain functions using the software.
Before you start taking screen captures, check with your project editor so we can determine if we can use screen-captured images of the program in a commercial publication. Our licensing specialists will verify this information, and once we have the green light on permissions, you can begin to create your instructional images.
This guide will walk you through a few different methods for saving screenshots as image files at a high enough resolution for inclusion in your book. If you need to add mark-up to your screen captured images, please discuss this with your project editor.
