Emailing screen captures
|Top Previous Next|
The easiest way to send screen captures is to use copy & paste
1 On the capture bar, click Area.
2 Select an area.
3 On the output toolbar, click Copy.
4 Open an email and click in the body.
5 In the email program, click Edit / Paste.
Here's the nice part: repeat for each picture you want to include in the email.
Some email programs, such as GMail, are text only and don't accept images in messages.
Many email programs require specific image formats, such as JPG or GIF. To output a specific format, on the capture bar click Settings / Options / Output / Copy to Clipboard and select the desired format.
Guaranteed to work method
Save the captured image, then attach the file to email. This always works, but the images won't be embedded into the text and the recipient may need to take some action to view it.
The Email button on the output toolbar
The Email button opens a new email using your default email program. It works best with email programs that are “Simple MAPI” compatible. If MAPI isn't available, CaptureWiz will use the program’s “MailTo:” function.
Note: Windows Live Mail , which comes free with Windows 7, requires restart to work correctly..
Web based email programs, such as Gmail, Yahoo and MSN, can't work with the Email button because they run in what's called a "sandbox", isolated from everything on your machine.
