Independent ragged edges application
« on: March 12, 2012, 08:37:54 AM »
Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I recently started using Screenshot Captor and donated for a license key. Lovely application that replaced FSCapture. I had two key requirements holding me with FSCapture and now met by Screenshot Captor: scroll long windows and the ragged edges effect.

That said Screenshot Captor is a large and complex application when it comes to this category of software. The simplicity and economy of a tool like Zizorz appeals to me too. I tried to find a way to add ragged edges through command line but came empty handed.

Therefore pleading for making this functionality available stand alone! I think this goes in the direction discussed here: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=21483.0.

Or any pointer on how to do it with external application or autohotkey?

Cheers
P.

Hi

found that minicap is even closer to what I need. It already allows a shadow effect but I still would prefer a torn edge effect. If some functions of screenshot captor were made more modular, user could leverage them with minicap postrun option.

PierrL, do you use mousres FARR launcher?
minicap can also be used from within FARR via an alias (I posted about it here lately)

My favourite *easy* screen capture "programme" was minicap via FARR (as an alias). I lost track of it after my last hardware update. Was my favourite - would be nice if it came with FARR by default (dont know if that would cause other headaches). Just re-"installed" the alias, it came with an outdated minicap so I wont link to it (I replaced the minicap with up-to-date files, will see how I get on...)


Edit/ although I see there's an Alias only download that presumably works with an installed minicap

If you're lucky, mouser might be able to transfer the effect you want from SC programme to minicap...

I use autohotkey shortcuts:
- one to trigger minicap and put the selected area in clipboard with shadow : MiniCap.exe -captureregselect -clipimage -bordershadow -exit
- one use irfan viewer in case I want to add text or such: i_view32.exe /capture=4

I'm now playing with ImageMagick to add a torn effect border to the image. If Ican get what I want I will use miniclip to capture to file, process that file with ImageMagick and put in clipboard ready to be pasted (case A) or open in Irfan for editing (case B)

I don't suggest to "bloat" minicap with extra effects. Just have an independent exe that can add the effect on command line.

Cheers
