Help with saving

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, hoping someone may be able to help. I really need to save an image - I can save most images as normal, including the copyright ones etc. However, with this other type, when you right click on the image and the drop-down menu is the type that doesn't have "save picture as" and also isn't the normal copyright disabled one - but instead has this list:


Zoom in
-------
Show all
Quality
Play
Loop
Rewind
Forward
Back
Settings...
Print...
About Adobe Flash Player 9...



Options in the drop-down menu instead... how do I still save the image, is there a simple way that anybody knows??

Thanks in advance!!

There is specific software to do this, but it can be achieved by pressing Printscreen to copy an image of your screen to the clipboard and then cropping the resulting image down to what you want.

Hi again

If "print screen" won't copy into either notepad or wordpad and also won't open into any paint program, anybody know why?? :thumbsup: Am using WinXP on my Laptop and have tried both whilst and not when my printer is connected to it.

Cheers.

Its a ShockWave Flash Object, swf. This is normally a video therefore its going to be difficult to capture every frame with Pri-Sc. I can make you a program to stop and start as you want too then you could do a screendump. :thumbsup:

I'm not sure what method you were using but what you should try is to press PrintScreen to capture the image, then open Microsoft Paint and then select Edit, Paste. Let us know if that works.

Thanks again for responding. After pressing "prt sc" to take a screenshot - upon opening Ms Paint, under the "edit" option, "paste" is greyed out and only "paste from" is available.. Also "ctrl V" doesn't paste the screenshot either..
