Save screen area as graphic-file?


Recommended Posts

You need to be more specific about what you're trying to achieve.

 

At first sight your question seems unrelated to Macro Express Pro.

 

To "save a screen area as graphic-file" you typically use screen capture programs. There are scores of these, free and commercial. I mainly use Snagit. Here are 29 million to sift through!

Or you could make the initial capture with the PrtScr key on your keyboard, and then perhaps use a macro to select a specific area or window with Mouse commands, and change the file type as you ask in your other post.

Terry is correct. You will need to use some utility for this. I use Snagit as well. But often you can do things with simple free grapics apps like Irfanview.

Hi,

 

I know about Screen Capture Tools (I use HyperSnap for a test), but I want to do some actions with MEP, then make with MEP a Screenshot of an active window and upload it to my webspace. Thats not the problem, but MEP uploads it only as BMP (>6MB each file http://pgmacros.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=5109 :-() and BMP-files I cant handle with PHP...

I only used .Net, because my idea does not work with MEP and I did not want to install any other programs (like HyperSnap/Snagit or ImageMagick).

 

With ImageMagick I got the idea of command line programming tool in .NET and after an hour I had what I wanted with some lines of code in .Net.

 

MEP is easy to use, so I prefer this great tool instead of program some codes in .Net or other languages. :-D
