Anything on the Screen can be used in TapToTalk Designer!

If you have something on your computer screen, you can capture it and use it in TapToTalk Designer! It does not matter where it came from or what format it is in.

This magic is done by doing a screen capture of a section of the screen and saving what you capture as a jpg or png file (the kinds Designer loves).

In Windows, you do this with the Windows Snipping Tool, a free program that comes with Windows 7 and Windows Vista (and you can download it for Windows XP). There is a similar program on the Mac called Grab.

Here is a Microsoft tutorial.

Here are a few tips:

1. Make the screen section you capture square, because square pictures work best in TapToTalk.

2. Save the image as a jpg or png file and remember where you save it.

3. Then upload it into Designer as you would any picture or image.

You can use this to capture part of a picture and to convert images in file formats Designer does not accept.
