I'm not looking for screen captures, as discussed in the thread on <post#=595,580>post 595,580</post#>, but ...
... a specific task, that of easily saving an image from the clipboard to a named file.
I am writing within VBA, and am able to send the selected inline shape(s) to the clipboard.
If I can shell to a dead-simple EXE which transfers the (clipboard) image to a JPG, stored in any fixed location (e.g. C:1.JPG), my VBA code can easily transfer C:1.JPG to an appropriately named folderfile.
I have Googled for such a utility, with no luck.
I could write the thing in VB6 as an EXE, but I'd rather avoid work at this stage.
In this thread(<post#=125,092>post 125,092</post#>) I have managed to save the clipboard to a PPT slide, but the entire slide is saved, leaving my image looking like a grainy little island in a sea of whiteness.
(later) I'd considered using VBA from within Word to resize the image on the PPT slide to fit the entire slide, but the various images don't conform to the same width/height ratio as the slides.
