I want to capture screen image and then be able to edit it. What software(s) do I
need and tell me generally what I need to do?

FSCaptureSetup53 (Download URL) (latest free one) is the best I've ever used. With it running in the SysTray, a simple Ctrl + Prt Scr will bring up the target arrows for you to select anything to capture. If you need to capture a window that scrolls, then a simple Ctrl + Alt + Prt Scr brings up the option to capture a scrolling window area. It comes with its own Graphics Editor.

Some more advices:

If you don't want to install any third-party software, you can simply press PrintScreen button, then open any graphic editor, like MSPaint, or Photoshop, and press Ctrl+V. Then edit your image.

If ou want to capture a screenshot of a web-page, and if you use Firefox, there is a great add-on for it - FireShot.

Hope it helps :)

I like using MWSnap. It's a simple and small little program but it does the job.

May I please add that you can also click ALT + Printscreen. This will allow you to take a screenshot of only the application running. Like if you wanted to have a screenshot of the Task Manager for example.
