At the October 25th session there was a demonstration and discussion of screen captures, image resolution and Evernote.
The Windows Snipping Tool and Irfanview were demonstrated, and other screen capture utilities were discussed. Links used for these are:
Snipping Tool Windows 7
Other free screen capture programs:
Vector Graphics, Image Resolution and Ask-Leo
A question about converting images from jpg to vector graphics was asked, and a Google search for an online converter resulted in trying out Vector Magic.
A practical demonstration with a simple jpg showed that this type of conversion does not give very good results.
The discussion then led to image resolution and Leo Notenboom’s posting:
Attendees were advised to sign up for the ask-leo email newsletter to get similar tips and information on their own twice a week.
As, the resolution posting came from my Evernote notebooks, there was a discussion about obtaining and using Evernote, as well as a practical demonstration of how I use Evernote.
There will be no BRCS Freeware SIG sessions in November 2012, nor in December 2012. The next session will be January 24, 2013.
