Is 'scrolling capture' suitable for grabbing zoomable contents?
« on: December 29, 2011, 11:34:09 PM »
Hi,
I was wandering if you could grab contents of pictures that are relatively large. If I'm in one of the museums at the Google art project, I can only PrintScreen the total picture, wich is of a rather low quality (usually smaller then 1Mb). The pictures themselves are a lot larger (and thus more detailed). What interests me is a possibility to download the entire picture, so you would get a 'fit to screen' result with the file being for example 15 or 20 Mb. Is there a way of doing this with the existing screenshot captor software?

It's not going to be suitable for something like google art project which has a proprietary interface for scrolling that has no way of scrolling by pages or lines.

Would a manual scrolled capture be a feasible solution?

well the new sc3 has a manual scrolling capture mode, though it is awkward (i will be improving it).

BUT.. the site the poster is talking about has no clean way to manually scroll by a known amount, at least as far as i can tell -- seems more like a general mouse based web panning -- so no clean way to know how far you've scrolled.
