Thread: Taking pics of screen - shadow?
02-14-2005, 06:05 AM #1jimmynitcherGuestTaking pics of screen - shadow?
When I take a pic of part of the screen into clipboard and paste it into Word there is often a darker part at the top of the picture, if I repeat the process it varies in width and sometimes (thankfully) disappears completely.
Does anyone know how to cure this?
Thanks in advance..

Do you mean the tiny black triangles at the ends of the menu bar?

no and I'm not sure what you mean by triangles either..Thanks for your reply anyhow.
A pasted picture has an opaque band of various widths at the top.

Try placing the picture in a different program, if it doesn't have the same problem then it's something to do with word, if it is then you can at least search the web for related problems of this nature to the word program. Hope this is of help !!

I was browsing your screen shots. How do you get this type of interface on the OSX desktop? Like this:

Serious question here.
How do you grab a screenshot? Is there a button you can press like Print Screen on the PC or are you using special software?

Anyway to get back to my original thread, it still happens in Textedit.
Any ideas ? if I could work out how to put a picture in the text like some above would that help?

Is it possible that it's a problem with your monitor, try testing it with an LCD screen tester or just open a program like photoshop fill the screen with one colour and then do a full screen preview !

No it's definitely not the screen - the problem is localized to the pasted image only.
Now where's the help menu for this forum....?!
