Capturing a Region on a Page with Page Saver Pro

Tuesday, November 14th, 2006

The Pro edition of Page Saver 1.3 includes a useful (and fun) new feature: the capability to select and capture an image of a region on the page. To see this feature in action, view a video demonstration.

To begin a region-based capture, press and hold the control key (the command key on Mac OS) while you click on the Page Saver Pro toolbar item. The contents of the browser window will dim slightly and the mouse pointer will change to a crosshair. Click and drag a diagonal path to highlight the rectangular area you want to capture. When you release the mouse button, an image of the region you selected will be saved to a local file, copied to the clipboard, or published to a server. To cancel a region-based capture, press the escape key before you release the mouse button.

You can also set hidden preferences to trigger a region-based capture by default and to create a keyboard shortcut. Learn more by reading the Page Saver documentation.

In the future, we plan to add a “Save Image of Region You Select” item to the various Page Saver Pro menus and to expose the hidden preferences in the options window. Please tell us what other enhancements you would like us to make.
