Easier/workaround is as was done in the screenshot. What you suggest amounts to 
making screenshots of screenshots and somehow displaying the earlier as if 
realtime (without using an image viewer), as the purpose of the exercise is to 
demonstrate differing concurrent states to others, not the ability to display 
images that could have been constructed arbitrarily from some other environment.
