hey, I was wondering if anyone new of a good, quick way to make it so when the user hit printscreen, the picture would save to a bmp file....If someone were to just tell me how to open, set up, and save to a bmp, I could probably work my way from there -jverkoey

The easiest to save a picture is to write a raw file. Softwares like photoshop or paint shop pro can then read it.

For Bitmap, you have some solutions :
- use then Win32 API,
- use free libraries such as DevIL http://devil.sourceforge.net
- write your own bitmap saver.
