The other day, I wrote here about how I was managing to capture large-scale maps as PC image files, by panning my web browser in Bing Maps and then taking a screenshot each time. I then stitched together those images to make one enormous printable file, using a program called Auto Stitch.

To assist in my quest for the easiest way of producing giant maps, I've recently changed my screen capture program. I was previously using Greenshot, but I recently switched to PicPick. You'll find it mentioned at http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/free-multi-function-screen-captu... if you want to read all about it.
PicPick scores for me because it allows me to set things up just as I want them. I can define an area of the screen that corresponds to the Bing Maps display area, minus the menus and other assorted boxes that I don't want. And then, with the press of a single hot key, I can capture that area of the screen and save the resulting image file as a JPG image into the folder of my choosing. All ready for Auto Stitch to start working on.
If you've not tried out PicPick, give it a shot.
