one thing i miss is ability to 1) paste clipboard image as a new resizable/movable object onto an existing screenshot.
2) merge two screenshots.
so i'm going to add these function - i think it will make it easier to combine screenshots.
any related suggestions?
Maybe I'm not understanding the concept. When I open Captor, it displays any previous pics as thumbnails on the left, and one is loaded. If I paste, the clipboard is added to the current (old) image, or if I delete that and paste there's a flicker but then a blank image is created. I couldn't find a way to paste as new (rather than using Captor itself to create the image from scratch).
Also, any dialog that has a non-rectangular window isn't captured as such. (A good example that almost everyone has handy is Media Player.)
One program that does that well (but otherwise isn't as cool as Captor
) is the freeware WinSnap
. Maybe since both of you are coding the respective programs for fun (and out of necessity) you could combine your efforts? That's not to presume that you want to, of course, but it's a thought. There's a lot of overlap in their feature set.
Here's WinSnap's version of the same shot:
BTW, in the FWIW category, the "scissors" pic bundled with Captor needs its finger holes "cut out" -- they're opaque.
I can try to do it myself and email if you like, but I haven't tried it yet.
