This was recommended to me by Trevor Chinahand.  It took me a little while to finally lock in my Serial Number, but their support section were very helpful - if a bit slow.

It's a great little piece of kit, which enables you to snip out all or part of your current screen quickly and easily.

It costs A$15.00

Just Google Abbyy Screenshot Reader and choose your download.

Cheers

I have a 'grab' facility on the Mac.
I thought most computers have them.

They do, Pete.  In Win 7 it's a bit of a business.  This thing is quick.

I do a lot of it (when I get the time), on my blog and it will make life much easier.

I just wanted to acknowledge Trevor's pointing it out to me.

Yes.  It's a real business, isn't it?

With ABBYY you just click on the corner of your desired shot and drag a box around it.

Then save it.

Simple.

I've done some tutorials on my blog using that system and it took me forever to do them.

It's OK for one offs, though.

Two clicks on the Mac.
One to bring up the Grab Utility and the other to save the selection.
Useful for note taking but the definition isn't too hot.
(That can probably be adjusted but it's not important to me).

I'm surprised you find it a bit of business.  I can't compare your software but I find windows Snipping Tool very easy to use.

Windows and 'easy to use' in the same sentence? There's a first for everything. :lol:

I've always done . . .

Ctrl/PrtScn > All Programs > Accessories > Paint > Ctrl V > Save As > PNG > Pictures > Edit > Crop etc . . .

That, to me is a bit of a business, compared to ABBY

I've never heard of a "Snipping Tool"  Maybe I don't have one, or no one thought to mention it  . . .

And I don't have a Mac

Thanks, anyway Trevor.  I appreciate you telling me about it.  I am a bit sorry I mentioned it.

I use their ABBYY Finereader, [free version] which is very useful. It allows me to scan text in any language and converts it to an editable Word file, which in turn I can put through a translation site or edit to change format, style or content.

That's not a bit of a business that's a hell of a business.  :lol: The snipping tool is under All programs > Accessories

I'm sure that there will be lots who appreciate your mentioning it Max.  It's whatever program does for you. :thumbs

Warren, the Snipping tool , just tried it & yes OK and locked into the desktop toolbar. Still require another program to edit the photo - I use Fast Stone.

Max, does ABBY edit the grabbed screen shot?

It just crops it as far as I can see, Sol.  Re-sizing would be a different matter.
