    How do I… get HM3 to stop cropping large pictures?

    I have the following image that I can get to fit in the drawing window on HM3, but every time I export it as a png, it crops the picture on both sides and the bottom (as below). I can view the picture in widescreen mode, but how do you save a widescreen shot? Just do a screen capture and crop the picture?

    Thanks.

    Either a screen capture or a type of snipping tool is what I use now. Had the same issue until a moderator set me straight. Good luck, and welcome.

    There is a way to get widescreen pics. On the Export screen, there are options for widescreen formats that you can then crop if they’re too big. Just select one of those.

    Djuby: Thanks for the compliment. What snipping tool do you use?

    Kaylin88100: Thanks for the info. Works great for the sides, but it still keeps cutting off the feet.

    Just a small annoyance as it means I can’t export a clean transparent version.

    When I can’t get the whole picture in one shot I move it around with the Move All option, and use print screen to capture all parts. Then I just piece it together in ms paint.

    I believe Windows 7 is supposed to have a snipping tool included. I can’t find mine, but screengrabbing works well enough.

    I don’t use the export feature ever and always do screen captures ( print screen button ) but if the image is to big to get in a single screen capture I used a different approach myself. Instead of multiple pictures and piecing them back together I just use the browsers ability to zoom out. I reduced my view to somewhere between 90-95% and then I am usually able to get a single screenshot that way.

    That’s pretty darned clever.

    I usually use Ms Paint, for cropping. I do fullsize view and printscreen and paste in Ms paint, this is the most easiest method.

    I much use screen capture but it alters the density of the photo, the results is much pixilated, though I am not using a wider picture so it is barely noticeable. Then when it comes to printing I used the process of digital print copy like this one http://www.digitekprinting.com/digital-printing.
