A report from pgCon 2013
Little things that matter in language design
today's massive chunk of memory is tomorrow's brief email.
I can't say I look forward to the 2MB (and later, 1GB) "Me too!" email. Or as the kids seem to say these days, "THIS."

You can save other formats from MS Paint (including PNG!), and Outlook will let you attach them. (Open MS Paint, take your screen shot with Alt-PrtSc, hit Ctrl-V in Paint followed by Save As... Voila!) That's significantly less hurl-inducing than Word-encapsulated JPGs.
Also, there's a Windows version of GIMP that also works well for acquiring and cropping screenshots.
That said, I still don't want to see the 1GB "Me too!" email.

Mind you, I was comparing launching MS Paint vs. launching MS Word, since you mentioned sending screenshots wrapped in a Word document. (And I only mentioned GIMP in case you wanted to get fancier than what MS Paint lets you do.)
