1  DonationCoder.com Software / System Path Commander / Re: Malware? on: Today at 01:54:38 AM
I'm guessing that Malware.Packer.Gen is not really malware.

Your guess is correct.

There are a ton of threads on this forum (and every other software forum) about the insanely irresponsible practice of antivirus companies throwing these false positives when they encounter files that have been compressed or processed by some packager that they are unsure of.

The giveaway for people in the know is always in the name/label of the malware found.. It's always something like "generic packer" (or in your case "Packer.Gen").

That's code for "I don't know what this is so i'm going to label it as potential malware and scare everyone."

The best practice when you encounter something like that is to do what you are doing -- don't ignore it, don't assume it's a false alarm -- but be skeptical of your antivirus, and investigate as you are doing.

And typically the best thing to do is to upload the program in question to a place like https://www.virustotal.com/ where it will be scanned with tons of different engines, which will usually confirm that most engines report the program as safe.

As we speak I am completely revamping the "manual" method of performing a scrolling capture, to make it a viable option for tricky circumstances where automatic scrolling fails.

Hi grabber.

I am sorry it's taken so long to reply.  Web Link Captor is one of those programs of mine that i worked very hard on but never seem to get any traction.  Even I only have rare occasion to use it.
What you are asking could be done with a python script -- but i don't have time to code it myself.

I thank you for persevering and thank you for your nice post.

Answer to your first question:
You can install the new version right on top of old version and all your settings will be preserved, no worries.

(ps. you can also backup your settings for emergencies, it's a file called ScreenshotCaptor.ini -- stored in your mydocuments folder on win vista/7/8, or in ScreenshotCaptor directory on xp).

Answer to your second question:
You can tell SC to save all files as jpg files by default (see the Image File Format tab); you can experiment with the Compression Level to get the best file size vs quality tradeoff.
OR if you don't mind an extra step, you can capture in the normal PNG lossless format, and then just use SaveAs to save jpg when you need to post to your forum.

Answer to your third question:

For the fastest workflow -- I turn off the post-capture dialog, so you can just capture images without intervention.  If you are posting on a forum, a really nice feature is go to the Post-Capture options dialog, and tell SC to capture the file PATH to the clipboard after every capture.  Then you can capture an image and it will put the path on the clipboard where you can paste it into the file browse dialog that will be shown when you tell your forum to attach an image file.

ps. I'm going to move this post to the Screenshot Captor area of our forum.

In the next beta there is now an option for this (accessible from the gear icon in the red box selection mode).

Scrolling captures can be a bit tricky, but there are some videos showing how to do it here.

All modern browsers have addons you can download that can pretty easily capture a large webpage that needs scrolling -- if it's only web pages that you need to do scrolling captures for, that may be easiest.

The local one paused to buffer a lot for me too -- of course that is not because it's local per se -- but rather a reflection of the local server's performance weaknesses and the bandwidth limits of its location.

Can you try the new beta and let me know how it does?
On the main options tab there is a new option to tell it to not respond to resolution changes -- give that a try if the bug is still present.

Ok i've managed to add some of the requests, try the new beta.

You can now set explicit minimum width of all buttons (or overide any button), and you can set spacings for separators, and toolbar margins.

17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / A good gift for a 10yr old: Wreck This Journal on: April 19, 2014, 09:13:44 AM
I recently stumbled across this and bought it for my 10 year old niece, and she is really getting a kick out of it:

"Wreck This Journal" by Keri Smith.



Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book that features a subversive collection of prompts, asking readers to muster up their best mistake and mess-making abilities and to fill the pages of the book (or destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts--poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting pages with coffee, coloring outside the lines, and more--in order to experience the true creative process. With Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making..

I think she really got a kick out of how subversive the book is, telling you to do all the things to a book that you are never supposed to do (stomp on it, take it into the shower, etc.)

Highly recommended.

Aside from the artifact (looks like part of a text-selection cursor), a careful look will spot the difference in the new bolded text -- but it would be fine for most uses.

There is an artifact above the word "automatically".

Everything Shades says is true.

However, SC *does* have a couple of nice features for quickly hiding information on a screenshot.

For example, you can select the area containing the incorrect text, and use the SpecialFX2 menu item labeled "Patch text/contents of selected region with background" to have SC automatically look at the background color and fill it in.
This feature was designed specifically to help you quickly hide stuff -- and it's a useful tool worth knowing about in SC.

As for adding your own replacement text, you could do it with a text box with transparent background and no border -- but here is where SC will not be able to compete with a real graphics program -- in letting you really tweak the text formatting to match the original.  SC just isn't designed for that level of fine grained text tweaking.

Very concisely explained -- I'm going to see how much of this i can get done this weekend for the next beta release.  Hopefully you can do some testing for me.  thumbs up

24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Skype and Webcam: HD or not? on: April 18, 2014, 01:46:27 PM
Actually I think brahman's question is more subtle and important to get a real answer for, and that seems to be:

If he gets the HD version of the webcam, will it be trivial to use it as if it were a lower-resolution camera.
That is, will skype be smart enough to lower the resolution to preserve bandwidth or cpu needs (or presumably can he easily set a lower resolution manually).

And the unspoken question/assumption -- will RUNNING the HD camera at a lower resolution eat up less cpu/usb-bandwidth than running the natively low-resolution camera?  I assume that running the hd camera at lower resolution will eat up similar usb bandwidth/cpu as the natively lower resolution camera.

Assuming so, and assuming price is not an object, I do think you'd be better off buying the HD cam, and at the very lease you will be able to set it manually to run at a lower resolution.  Especially if the hd camera has hardware-encoding of video, which can substantially reduce the cpu/usb bandwidth.
(the 720 does NOT appear to have hardware encoding; the 920 does).
