Advanced Screen Capturing Features and Batch Updates
MadCap Capture offers advanced screen capturing features designed to save you time and effort; batch processing makes it easy to update a large number of images quickly across projects.
Capture profiles: A profile is a collection of settings that are applied to the image. You can also apply profiles to a single image or multiple images through the use of a batch job.
With profiles, you can:
- Select captured image file location
- Apply a specific border
- Add shapes
- Set the DPI
- Automatically resize
Recapture images: Easily recapture an image while maintaining all existing callouts and objects added to it.
Image cropping: Cropped images can be re-cropped, as the entire image is saved.
Time delay: Capture images immediately or on a timed delay.
Batch processing: Apply image profiles to folders/subfolders; update and replace images.
Capture regions consecutively: Capture multiple images without having to select the capture option each time.
Powerful Image Editing
Apply various types of effects to images, such as blurs, shading or gradients.
- Blur effects
- Blur-inside effects
- Gray scale effects
- Shading effects
- Shadow effects
- Torn edge effects
- Zoom effects
- Bubble and text callouts
Palettes: Add various types of objects to an image such as shapes, lines and cursors. A palette is an element that lets you store objects for later use.
Single-sourcing and Content Reuse with MadCap Flare
Maximize content reuse by applying the same rules used for text to images. By adding variables to callouts and images for example, there's no need to recapture or reinsert images into your documentation when text or version changes are required.
Project Conditions and Variable Links: You can link an image to a MadCap Flare project. This allows you to automatically have access to any variables or condition tags found in that Flare project.
Support for Custom Mediums in Flare
Enhanced integration with custom mediums in Flare allow for more powerful single-sourcing of images to be used in various outputs.
Standard Image File Type Support
Capture and edit images in standard file formats including BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG and TIFF.
