Desktop border

Unread post by Stewart Edgell »

First off - great job on SnipSVG! However, I note that a screenshot of a window includes a fine border of the desktop (in my case a blue border). It is possible to remove this by editing in SnipSVG but it would be useful if there was an auto-trim feature at the point of capture. Snagit (for example) has such a feature.

Hie Stewart,

To be honest, I hadn't even noticed the small border myself. I had always seen it as something positive, because on light-colored windows it makes the window edges clearly visible and on dark ones you generally don't see it. But I can see how it might sometimes be something you would want to remove, so we're looking into it. 8)

We have added a border-trim function to the "Picture Crop" edit mode.

I have tried the new version and a 1 px trim with 8 px rounded corners seems to be the optimal setting to remove the unwanted background from a window screenshot in Windows 11. Thanks for the prompt update.
