Not sure exactly what it is your doing, but try this:

After using one of your screen capture utilities to get the picture.
It saves it as .bmp file. Correct?

You need to convert the .bmp to .jpg

MS Paint should allow you to do this.

Select Start,
Select All Programs,
Select Accessories,
Select Paint

Double Click Paint

Select File,
Select Open,
Navigate to where you saved your .bmp file
Double Click the .bmp file.
After the .bmp files opens,

Select File,
Select Save As,
Change the Save As Type from .bmp to .jpg
Click Save

This should convert your .bmp to .jpg
