Recalling captured images

Top  Previous  Next

Saved images

To save captured images to any folder on your computer:

1 After you select an area to capture, an output toolbar appears.


Output Toolbar W Mse Ptr

2  On the output toolbar, click Save. A SaveAs dialog appears.




3 On the SaveAs dialog, select the desired folder in the Save in field.


CaptureWiz remembers the name and folder you select and automatically applies them next time.


To retrieve these saved images, on the Windows taskbar click Start / Computer.


The default locations for saved images are:


C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My Documents\CaptureWiz

Later OSs

C:\Users\User Name\Documents\CaptureWiz


Temporary images

CaptureWiz by default saves a temporary image of each capture you make. On the hard disk, these images are stored as highly compressed, but 100% accurate, PNG files. The viewer and mini-viewer display thumbnails of these saved images for you to retrieve at will. These thumbnails take minimal computer memory.


To change where and how long temporary images are stored:

1 On the capture bar menu, click Settings / Options / Main.

2 Select the folder and days in Backup image storage.

To delete ALL temporary images:

1 Right-click the mini viewer.

2 On the context menu, click Temporary Folder / Delete All Captured Images.


To stop CaptureWiz from collecting temporary images.

1 On the capture bar, click Settings / Options / Main.

2 Set the Number days images stored to zero.

Note on file sizes in kibibytes and mebibytes

CaptureWiz's viewer and mini viewer use the new standard international prefixes kibibytes (KiB) (1,024) and mebibytes (MiB) (1,048,576) to show the true file size of your stored images. This avoids the ambiguity of K, the official prefix for 1,000, but often shorthand for 1,024 and M, a thousand Ks.
