Screenshot Captor / Cutting out an image from it's background..
« on: January 11, 2015, 08:04 AM »
Hi All, so let's say I have an image, a red car, that I'm trying to remove from it's white rectangular background as I only want the car to paste onto my rectangular background color.

So, I know how to do the essential first part via the Magic Wand(Global I think?), Inverting and then I believe cropping..

This seems to remove the white background leaving me with just the desired red car.

That being said, when I then Save it, I have the desired item now resting on the Screenshot Capture Grey rectangular background..

So, I go from removing the white background to now having a grey background..which doesn't look good with the white background of my website.

How can I only remove the car, save it and then paste the car just by itself onto my white website page?

Thanks so much,


Screenshot Captor / Thumbnails in explorer only show flower image...
« on: October 26, 2014, 11:50 AM »
I used to be able to see the the thumbnail images of what I had just made a screenshot for.

Now, on the left margin of the main window, all I see are thumbnails with an image of an orange and yellow dandelion with the file name I assigned and .png.

I explored all the preference settings and didn't see any kind of fix for this.

Please advise..


Screenshot Captor / How to save an enlarged image?
« on: October 18, 2014, 12:12 PM »
So, here's something that's evaded me ever since I started using this program.

Very often, after capturing an image, I'll play with the Zoom slider on the right side of the main window.

So, say I zoom it up to 150% and I now want to save the blown up image..I've tried all the available "Save" options in the File menu but it never works as when I check the file saved to my computer, it's the original sized image and not the 150% zoomed up one that I really want.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance..


Screenshot Captor / Correcting a mispelling in a captured image?
« on: April 18, 2014, 08:19 PM »
So, I captured an image and would like to use it in a presentation.

But alas, I noticed something incorrect in the text(black)

The background is a shade of grey(not 50 Shades of Grey though  8)).

I see a color cop color picker tool.

Can I use that to match the background grey and "paint" over the incorrect text and then re-do the black text correctly.

I know this can probably be done in GIMP but was curious if possible with this great tool.

Thanks so much  :up:

Hi, so I'm looking to utilize Screenshot Captor in a way that I ordinarily dont..that is, to crop out the uneven white boundary around an image that was included in my original capture.

As you can see in the attachment, the image is a blank Scroll(that I plan on adding text to).

I'm aware of the "cropping" options and sense that this involves either the "lasso" or one of the "Magic Wand" selections.

The Lasso one is more or less impossible for me to do as clean a crop as I'd like.

The Global Magic Wand option seems to automatically delineate the Scroll from the white region of the outer boundary(this looks to be the right choice) but when I utilize it, it deletes the Scroll part and just leaves me with it's shadow now on a white background.

Would welcome anyone's input who has done this before.....

Thanks in advance.
