    I have seen a few people use a image they captured from google earth or google maps and they post it with borders and markers added.
    How do you do that??
    I wanted to put a couple of pics of my commercial property and the borders and ask some questions but I have no idea how to get the picture from google earth to here.

    any help you can give me would be greatly apprecited!!

    Screen capture? Get where you want, press the [PrtScn] button to copy to clipboard, then paste somewhere to edit.

    Without opening Google Earth (on a different computer than what I'm on) I can't tell you if there's a copy function in the program itself.

    thank you
    I will try the print screen and see if that does the trick
    I did try to right click and copy image on the pop up screen but it would not paste any where it was like I had not copied it at all.
