I need to take multiple screen shots and have them in one tiff file. Is this possible, can anyone help me?

Knowing what OS you're using would be helpful. – Wuffers Apr 18 '11 at 4:59
Do you want the sceenshots arranged as a montage or as seperate overlapping layers? – Mike Fitzpatrick Apr 18 '11 at 5:02

First, generate the screenshots, then use ImageMagick to combine them into a single file:

import ss1.png
import ss2.png
convert ss1.png ss2.png screenshots.tif
