    Why are my screenshots blank in Photoshop?

    pavilion00

      I'm having an odd thing happen with screenshots pasted into Photoshop Elements 9. When I try to take screenshots from video applications such as RealPlayer, the images are missing from the screenshots when pasted into Photoshop. The screenshot shows my PC desktop and the Realplayer prgram, menu bar. etc., but the image part of the screenshot is completely blacked out.

       

      These are the steps I follow:

      -run video in RealPlayer

      -hit the Print Screen button on my PC (Win 7)

      -in Photoshop do File -> New -> Image from Clipboard

       

      Any ideas what the problem is?

       

      Thanks.
