I think Picasa does pretty well everything that this program offers and is easier to use.
Might be fine for someone who does not have any software of this type.
I'll stick with Picasa!

I don't usually care for cloud applications, but this doesn't require any personal information and unlike Picasa and Chrome, this is not a Google program. The only other company I trust less than Google is Microsoft. And I don't have to install it and use up drive space.

I kinda like this befunky program.

Irfanview was the best free photo editor when I first started using it 15 years ago and I'm convinced it always will be the best.

Well, actually they pull the plug on Picasa Web Albums primarily; they want to integrate it with Google Photos.
Google explicitly states that you can keep the current version of Picasa, there just will be no more development and if you discover a bug you will have to live with it.
For what I use it for I haven't found a bug yet.

You most certainly are correct.

Then they change their policies - which is their good right, I admit - and suddenly it was only two systems. ;-)

Are you sure Green shot can capture scrolling webpages? I use the portable version and can't find that feature.

view
Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago boristhemoggy

I use [commercial software edited] and that is also supposed to do scrolling screen shot saves, however they are always broken up at the beginning so almost useless.
I mayy try this one and see if it works for me.

view
Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago Jojo Yee Joe, it seems to work in IE only, by selecting "Capture Internet Explorer" or shortcut Ctrl+Shift+PrtScn. view
Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago boristhemoggy

Yeah I can't find anyway to make it capture a scrolling screen

view
Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago pctyson

Jojo... you are right. What is really strange is that if you hit Ctrl+Shift+PrtScn while in a Firefox window, Greenshot will change focus to the Internet Explorer window and capture that window. If an Internet Explorer window is not open, it will not do anything. A little odd but this program is still a keeper for me. I will just have to use Internet Explorer when I want to capture a scrolling screen.

Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago bawldiggle

A shame it only captures scrolling web-page in IE only.
- IE is only used when Palemoon or Firefox fail

The system tray menu is huge, and so is the context menu.
My web connected PC does not have MS Office.

I find the Windows built in "Snipping Tool" (with my custom shortcut Ctrl+Alt+P) to be adequate for 90% of my needs.
Scrolled web pages, I save as PDF, then bookmark locations of the PDF

When I finally setup a virtual machine I will trial Greenshot.

Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago crombierob

Why are you all printing scrolling web pages ?
The best way to save web pages is to save them as .mht
That saves as a single file with that extension.
Whenever you need to view it, you just double click it, and the full web page appears in your browser (even if you are on Mars, with no internet connection)
IE has been able to do it for decades (mind you I have been avoiding IE for decades)
In FF you can get the maff extension, which can save as .mht
I have saved a million web pages that way, over the decades.
If I double click it, mine will open in FF (thus I can continue to avoid IE)

view
Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago crombierob

See my very recent comment on saving as .mht instead.

Being open minded, I thought I would install Greenshot and capture a scrolling web page, and then compare the size of my .mht vs the image capture.
And lo and behold it cannot scroll FF (as bawldiggle points out)

If anyone is interested in comparing the size of my .mht with a scrolled capture, could they capture this page, and report back as to the size of your image file.
My .mht of this page is 515KB

Rob
PS I just created a PDF, It is a bit smaller, but is horrible to read compared to the .MHT (the .mht is identical to the live web page)

view
Try This Really Flexible Screen Shot Tool 5 years 9 months ago Jojo Yee A good comment Crombierob. Saving a web page in mhtml or mht format is one of the handy methods for archiving or sharing as it contains everything in one single file. About the file size, if a web page contains a lot of images, the resulting mht file can be larger than a scrolling capture saved in jpg format. When you save a web page in mht format, it usually converts images to text using the Base64 binary-to-text scheme. According to Wikipedia, "the final size of Base64-encoded binary data is equal to 1.37 times the original data size..." To test it out, try upload an image to this online site http://www.base64-image.de/, then copy and save the Base64 string as a text file for gauging its size. view

It also supports capturing the scrolling window.

Thanks for the tip crombierob. It never occurred to me to search for an mht extension. Looks better than pdf, and pickpic et al sometimes stop during scrolling.
To get a complete page with all links/images etc. for use on Mars, web harvest the sucker.

I loved Turbo Pascal and Turbo C++. Back in the day they were the best on the market.

The modern, open-source successor to Turbo Pascal - and Delphi - is Free Pascal along with the Lazarus IDE. Really good for cross-platform development, and just seems to keep getting better.

Started of on Turbo Pascal 3.0 back in the day, in 1990 I think. Continued on to Delphi until the market fell in my country. So moved over to .NET. Still love Delphi though. Lazarus continued the old Delphi 7 interface but the new Embarcadero moved over to RadStudio (currently in XE 7 version - recently released) which is very similar to Visual Studio. Note that there is now a free version of RadStudio called AppMethod (current version 1.15) - it unfortunately only support Delphi (or Object Pascal) for 30 days. The Objective C++ for Android and Windows 32/64 is free though. Looking at that to try and get my first Android app out there...

I think I may have started with Turbo Pascal v2.0 in the mid-'80s. I kept with it through v6.0, which introduced me to a lot of OOP concepts. Around that time, I started learning C and Windows for my job. When I then moved on to project that used C++ and Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC), the OOP grounding I got from Turbo Pascal v6.0 really helped me compartmentalize which bits were generic OOP, which were C++, which were Windows and which were MFC.

I had a colleague who was learning C++, Windows programming and MFC all at the same time, and he had a very difficult time teasing out one from another. He did eventually learn to recognize the seams between them.
