Save cropped image only
« on: August 25, 2010, 06:13:05 PM »
After hitting "PrtSc" and "Keep image and Show," I almost always crop the image of what I really wanted from the screen shot and save it with a more specific file name instead of just the default time and day.  Problem is, I always end up with two images: the stock and the cropped, and again almost always end up deleting the stock image with its default file name.

How do I save only the cropped portion of the image?  Thanks.

try this:

Crop, then hit save (Ctrl+S), then rename it by typing a new name in the bottom "Name:" field and hitting enter.

note that you do have to save the image after you crop in order for the new name to not create a new file.  i could change that though, since it seems unnesc.

This technique worked (thanks!) but is rather counter-intuitive in that I hit Save before renaming the file and then close the window.  Saving usually comes after file renaming.

Seems more logical to crop, rename, save and close window but this technique had the effect of Save As (with two images saved).
