If you have Vista, I'm sure you've heard of the Snipping Tool. If not, here's the link to another Document I wrote a couple of months ago on How to Use The Snipping Tool 
By default, the Snipping Tool will put a red outline around everything you capture, which can be very annoying. Here are the steps to follow to get rid of the red outline around your Snips of photos/screen captures:
1 - Go to your Start Menu.
2 - Type snip in the search box. Or if you use it often, click on your Snipping Tool.
3 - The tiny Snipping Tool window will appear. Click on Options.
Here's what the Options windows looks like:
3a - Click on all the boxes (except the first one) as shown above.
4 - Go to Selection, Ink color. And choose *Black.*
5 - Next, deselect the box that says "Show selection ink after snips are captured" if there is a check mark on it.
6 - Click OK.
7 - Close your windows. And you're done.
This won't change the red outline for the Snips you already took, but next time your Snips/captures will be nice and clean, like the one above.
