Hi All,

Whenever I do a screen capture in VLC Player, regardless of big I have the screen on my computer at the time the grabs/pictures that are saved are quite small. I can't work out in the options how to save them bigger. Can anyone help me?

Cheers!
Sean

Open a picture in Privew, go to the top and click on "tools", and click on "adjust size" in the dropdown menu. Put a number in in the height column and it should rescale it to size Save it and it''s good.


Everyone hates cliffhanger endings because..

Found my advice useful? Use the reputation button in the upper-right corner of my post!

When you play a video in any video player it will play at the native resolution of the video being played. Let's say it's 1280x720. If you make that full screen and your screen is say 2560x1440 the player will stretch everything to make it full screen. But there's no extra information there it's still a 1280x720 video.

So when you capture a screen shot it's taking a frame from that video, in this example you'll get a 1280x720 image.

So as Thatguy16 says, if you want that image bigger you're going to need to resize it in Preview or another editing tool.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

So use CmdShift 4 and select the area that you want. Works for me.
