the best way i've found so far is to make it full screen on my monitor, then take a pic of it and email it to myself, then uploading it to photobucket. i've tried right clicking, save picture, but i don't have anything other than ms word to paste it in. running windows 7 pro. i've got ms office picture manager, but it doesn't let me paste a pic in there.

Copy the pic then open your paint program and hit paste.

Are you saving the pic in full size off a website or google earth? You shouldn't have to email it to yourself to upload to photobucket. Save the image to your desktop, or folder, go to photobucket then upload the image from your desktop or folder.

I bring up the map full screen on my computer, press the print screen button, near the delete key which takes a screen shot of what you are looking at and then I open up windows paint and press the paste button. then you can draw lines and dots and whatever else you want to draw on the maps
