Ok I see there is definitely some confusion here about the nature of image features i am proposing adding to CHS.
I am open to all kinds of ideas, but let me clarify more what *I* envision.
Here's what I don't propose:
- I don't propose to make CHS a tool for managing and browsing images like good image managers,databases do.
- I don't propose to give CHS good features for taking snapshots like Screenshot Captor.
My idea was in line with how i understand most Clipboard tools that work with images do.
That is, simply watch the clipboard for when image data is put on the clipboard -- for example when you select a region in photoshop (or Screenshot Captor or whatever), and copy it to the clipboard.
The idea is that when this happens, when you select an image in any program and hit Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard, CHS would save this temporary clipboard image in a local file and record a clip entry for it.
This clip entry would show up in your clipboard history just like the text entries do now. You will be able to preview it in the grid view, or paste it back into another program using the quick paste menu, just like a test clip.
In other words, images would be handled in just the way text clips are handled now.
