What you need is a screen capture utility (look on the net for it) to take
shots of your various browser screens. You can either set it up to capture
the entire screen or just the window, or even a box you can define by
dragging a rectangle with your mouse. I use WinCap. Then get LViewPro to
show the slide show. You can configure it to either run unattended by
specifying a time to recycle or interactive with a mouse click. It will
also convert the .BMP files that most screen capture utilities save in, to
most any other formats. I would suggest .JPG with about a 80% compression
setting to get the smallest file size without losing any image quality.
If you need more help with running these programs, let me know.
