ScreenshotAlternatively referred to as a print screen, screen dump, snapshot, or screen capture, a screen shot or screenshot is an image from what is shown on the screen. Screenshots can be created by a software program or operating system. Once a screenshot has been captured, it can be saved as an image file, such as a GIF or JPEG where it can be opened to manipulate, printed, or saved. The picture is an example screenshot from the game Starcraft.
