Default Image Capture Tool

Hi guys,
I wonder if you know some third-party component to implement a screen capture tool, I mean, a feature by which user captures a specific area of the desktop, some kinda screenshot; if so please shed some light on this.

Can't do this from ASP code.

Remember, ASP runs on the *SERVER*. The screen capture would HAVE to happen ON THE CLIENT.

If you intend to do this capture via a browser, then you will need a browser plugin. Probably not the simplest of plugins, and surely very specific to different browsers. Probably have to be an ActiveX plugin for MSIE and a Java plugin for NS. Also, it will surely need very different code for different operating systems (Windows vs. Mac vs. Linux).

In short, it ain't easy.
