Screen Capture

Top  Previous  Next


CodedColor has one of the most versatile screen capture features on the market. Not only can you capture distinct regions and objects, but your captured bitmaps can be automatically resized, converted to any image filetype and stored in designated folders. This greatly simplifies the task of creating software documentations or collecting images for web publishing.


Basically there is only one thing to rember when using the screen capture component: the application in which you want to capture bitmaps must be opened and active prior to CodedColor. That means for example, if you want to capture a region of an image in the Internet Explorer, first activate the Internet Explorer, then activate CodedColor and press CTRL+SHIFT+S to open the capture dialog.


Now select Source and Destination and then press CTRL+SHIFT+S again. If you selected Area as the source, then you must now draw a frame around the region of the screen you would like to capture.


If you disable the checkbox Capture outside of application, you can capture a region, object or window inside of CodedColor. This can come in handy, if you want to send us a screenshot along with a problem report.
