I've added a new feature to the latest beta of Screenshot Captor (4.8.7), which will let you "combine" images if you drop an image file onto the current image.
The "combine" options are fairly limited at this point -- essentially it will just lay out the dropped image on any side of the existing image, and let you choose how the images are resized.

This is a quick and easy way of combining images horizontally or vertically, and doing so in a visually appealing manner.

Download beta here: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=3474.0

For combination of many images, or for combining images into grids (as opposed to rows or columns) see the excellent standalone free tool "ImageGrid" made by dc member vlastimil: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=29464.0

I like this feature Mouser  :Thmbsup:

However when adding one image to the other, is there any chance you could allow to to add a smaller image at it's current size an existing larger image and say centre it?  Maybe the unused border could be set using transparency.

I have attached a screenshot where I have combined a smaller image onto a larger image and it doesn't look right.

Thanks

Redownload beta, there is a new option to not resize.

I downloaded the latest version and the option not to resize works great.

Dare I suggest another (minor) tweak?  Most times I think I would choose '3 Combine images, putting one next to the other' most times, so make this the default button for me.

Edit: Another option to maybe not show the 'WARNING: You have objects that may not resize properly' after the first time it is shown.

As always keep up the good work.

Thanks

very interesting idea :up:
Would you consider an option to not resize, but e.g. centre one image beside the other, using the existing option "transparent etc" to fill in the 'background' ?
(Resizing one image with text makes it blurry compared to the other...)

I have already used this new functionality three times (and I don't mean for testing), it's great!  It's something I didn't realise I needed.
