From PanamaJack:

Cobra - This could be used in te one of the Trader Newbie Section

This is mostly for newbies like myself some want to share a thought – an example – or just ask a question but get frustrated in the process and give up trying to post the “.png” file with the thought. There are other tools out there but I have found them to be buggy, and un-useable --
The following is for the Windows 7 environment:
Windows – Accessories – Snipping Tool
Use Snipping Tool to capture screen shots
You can use Snipping Tool to capture a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image – This application is free with the Windows 7 operating system and very easy to use
Rectangular Snip - Drag the cursor around an object to form a rectangle -- I like the rectangular snip as it seems to work well for the application we are using – snipping stock-charts!!
After you capture a snip, it's automatically copied to the Clipboard and the mark-up window. From the mark-up window, you can annotate, save, or share the snip. The following procedures explain how to use Snipping Tool. Most of the information is from the snip help file.
I usually save the file as a “.png” file to be used or viewed later – and in some cases I save to special labeled folders – to make retrieval easier - Help with Files
