You could automate the screenshot part in Revolution so you don't need 
to do it manually. Rev offers lots of ways to get screenshots out of 
your stack, and you can control what is exported -- either the entire 
card, or just a portion of it.

You'd want to run a repeat loop that goes to each card sequentially and 
issues the "export snapshot" command. For example, to get the whole 
card, use:

repeat with x = 1 to the number of cds
  go cd x
  put "snapshot" & x & ".jpg" into tfilename
  export snapshot from rect (the rect of this cd) to file tfilename as JPEG
end repeat

You can, of course, change the export file format to any that Rev 
supports. This should give you a series of screen shots in just a few
