Won't be easy - a toolkit (like tkinter) will only cpature your mous 
events that are directed towards it's own windows. You might be able to 
convince your program to collect mouse-events outside for a short period 
of time - like snapshot programs do - but that will reqiure pretty 
complicated, OS-dependant coding. Certainly way more complicated than 
loading an image using tkinter. Better tell us what's giving you a hard 
time there.
