Selecting part of a website page

See Selecting just part of a website page for an explanation of how our part page selection works.   You can use this screen to visually select the area of the website page you want.  However, this screen just returns the top left corner location, not the entire selected area.  You will then need to resize your web browser control to the required size. 

Additional note - If your finally selected area displays too large or too small, then consider using the Zoom percent option and changing from 100% to a different value.  50% will half the displayed size of the website page and 200% will double it.  You can use any value between 20% and 500%.


How to select an area to crop


There are several ways to use the cropping area:


- The green box can be resized by any of the resizer handles in its corners.  Just click them, hold the left mouse key down and drag them out.


Selecting a picture area to crop


- The green box can be moved by clicking and holding the left mouse in the middle of the green area and then dragging it around. When you release your mouse button it will stay.


- You can also draw an area with your mouse.  Click the top left corner of an area you want to crop from (this has to be outside any current green selected area otherwise it moves the area instead), then hold down your left mouse button and drag the 'elastic band' to cover the desired area and then release the mouse button.  This will then put a green selection box around you area.

Mask out unselected area tick box


This just puts a pink fade colour on the part of the image that outside the cropped area.   This just allows you to see the cropped area better, so you know what you are getting.

When finished

Click on the 'OK' button to return the cropping area to the previous screen.  If you have made a mistake or want to revert to the original cropped settings, then click on the 'Cancel' button instead.


This cropping system takes a snapshot of your website page to display.  If this doesn't display right please email us at and tell your the website address, and which version of Windows you are using please.
