There are three ways to decide what to do with the image once it has been captured.

  1. When you check Image Viewer, the image will open into the preview window of the browser view of FastStone as soon as the capture is made.
  2. When you check Clipboard, the image will be saved on the clipboard to be pasted somewhere else.
  3. When you check File, a "Save As" window will open, allowing you to choose the destination, file name and type.

There are five ways to capture all or part of the screen to be captured as an image. For the following examples, I have Imaging Tips loaded into a Firfox window, behind FastStone.

  1. When you click Capture Foreground Window, the window captured will be the last window opened before FastStone was open.

  2. When you click Capture Window Object, FastStone will disappear revealing the underlying window. There will be a red border around a window object. Move the cursor around until you have the desired window object selected and click.
