MS – Windows – Image – Cropping
This is so easy…
But, when one is artistically challenged, everything is hard.
Back on my Windows Desktop and needed to cut off pieces off a Screen Capture.
BTW, to capture images on my Windows Desktop I usually use the free version of WinSnap. The free version is V1 and it is available @ http://www.ntwind.com/software/winsnap/download-free-version.html
In WinSnap you probably want to choose to capture a region. That allows one to choose a rectangular area to capture.
Once captured, you might want to blot out Serial Numbers and the like.
So here I am Googling for everything under the November Sun. But, really don’t know what to go Google for:
- Cropping images
- Cutting images
- Blotting Images
After going through a few pages of Google Results, I was a bit deterred.
And, came back to may be the OS has something so easy to use, and so a cottage Industry never came about.
If OS has one, it will probably be Paint.
So launched Paint and the top menu instantly revealed that it is probably has what I need.
Once in Paint, I could see the familiar:
- Select button
- The Crop image button
So off to work:
- Using the Select button, one can select a rectangular Area or “Free-Hand” your Selection
- Once you ‘re comfortable with the Area, choose the Crop button and you ‘re done
- Save your File under a new name
And, think you ‘re done.
