    Rh Screen capture

    JAP7
      Hi there,

      i am trying to put two images on the same file but cant work out how to do it on Robo Screen Capture. I can do it on photoshop with its layering tool but i dont see any capability on RH. Anyone??

      thanks

          Get the lower layer open in RSC and then paste the other one in. It will have handles to move it around before you save.

              What I meant was open the image that you would be the the lower layer in something like PhotoShop. So just get the first image into RSC. Then paste the smaller image onto that. You will only be able to save as one layer but it will give you the image you want.

                thats where i am struggling. i can copy one image from one screen capture but pasting is a problem. When i attempt to do this, some of the pasted image is hidden behind the canvass. somehow i need to expand the canvass to accomodate both images but i dont know how to do that?

                thanks

                  You could achieve this with a bit of lateral thinking. Capture your first image and insert it into a word file. Now capture the image in the word file together with some space around it. Then paste your second image where you want and save. Open the image in something other than RSC and capture it getting rid of any of the unwanted space.

                  If this all seems like too much trouble, perhaps you should think about using a tool specifically designed for this purpose. Just a thought.

                    You cannot enlarge the canvas so if one image is offset you could do as Colum suggests.

                    Or in RSC grab an image of some white background, part of a blank Word document or something, then paste both your images on top in the required order.
