    1) I am talking about what program or software you use that will blur out the personal details (on the screenshot), usually like the names, email address such as in PAYPAL account. I can do it in paintshop using the black thing to scrup it it but it won't look professional at all, so I would be appreciated if you can tell me where I can get those?

    2) Also, where can I get a good clean watermark software? I just wanna watermark a few pictures thats it, and I have tried quite several Trial Version but it has the Copyright on the picture which is annoying unless the full version has been purchased and therefore, it won';t be appeared, so I was wondering if there's any other watermarks good program that won't have this kind of thing come out?

    Thanks in advance

    Can all be done in PhotoShop using the "blur" tool. If you do not have photoshop just use Paint and "spray paint" over the information you don't want shared.

    For watermarks, save the image you are going to use for watermarking as a .png with a transparent background. You should have better luck.

    jmhmedia pretty much summed it up but just wanted to add that to add a blur effect I will sometimes use 'mosaic' but blur, erase or spray painting it works great too. Photoshop is godly but if you want a high quality lightweight freeware program you might want to look at xnview. w3.xnview.c0m/

    Cheers.

    For blurring I use ScreenShot Captor. It's freeware and does a great job.

    For watermarking and more advanced stuff I use Photoshop. A free super lite and buggy version of Photoshop is available at

    Code:

    I use this when I'm away from my computers with Photoshop.

    I use the same program for all screenshots. Its simple and it works well, plus its free so thats always a nice lil bonus.

    InfranView is another great free tool to use as well.

    You can do it with Photoshop, or with Microsoft Photo Editor
