hmmm – I never noticed that! But, I tested, and sure enough, the printscreen capture in Picasa only showed the top left.
It has something to do with your screen resolution. I have a Lenovo Yoga with ultra high resolution, 3200 is the recommended setting – then comes 2048, 1920, 1600. I had to put it all the way down to 1280 X 720 before I got the entire screen in a screenshot.
My workaround was to use the Snipping Tool – that’s a utility program that comes with windows – youc an just search for snip and you’ll get it – then you click on New Snip and drag a rectangle around what you want – then you can click Save to save it as a .png file in whatever folder you specify. When I dragged a rectangle around the entire screen, then saved it in a folder that Picasa was watching (anywhere in the My Pictures folder) I could see the entire screen.
I am starting to like that “Snipping Tool” more and more. At first I had a hard time finding where it got saved. I save to my Desktop now. And Picasa did not see those “.PNG” files till I changed the setting in Picasa to to include them. So now I’m getting pretty fast at exporting from Picasa then uploading to Blogger. That’s where 90% of the snips are going. I put the “Snippng Tool” right down in the Task bar on the bottom of my Desktop for easy access. Thanks for the tip.
