How to copy and save an image from a flash website.

Lets say there is an Adobe Flash website with an image that you want to show to your graphic artist. This image is the type of image you are after for your website. With a normal website you could just right click on a photo and you would have the option to either copy the image or save it so you could send the image to your artist. But since it’s an Adobe Flash website, right clicking gives you two choices “Settings” and “About Adobe Flash Player” so you are unable to copy the image you so desperately want. Well there is a way to get the image you are after.

Below are the instructions for you to copy and save a flash image. Before you copy an image and use it you should consider any copyright implications. However if you are only using it as an example of the type of thing you are looking for you should not have any problems.

How to
1.    Load the site with flash that you want to get an image from.

2.    Find an image that you want and centre it on the screen, move the curser out of the way to one side or the top or bottom of the screen.

3.    Then Press the Print Screen key on the keyboard.
    a.    The Print Screen key is usually the next button to the right of F12 button, labelled something like ‘prt sc’.
        i.    What it does is copies the entire screen as it is  at the moment you press it, so make sure the cursors’ is moved away from the picture that you want.

4.    Then load MS Paint.
    a.    To find MS Paint click Start> then run your mouse over the All Programs menu item.
    b.    Then move your mouse over the Accessories menu item.
    c.    On the Accessories menu that opens click the paint menu item to run the paint program.
    d.    When the paint program loads click Edit> Paste>.
        i.    Then click the select button on the side bar.
            (1)    Usually the top right button that looks like a dotted square.
            (2)    This will allow you to draw a box around the section of the image you want to keep.
            (3)    You will have to practice to get it in the write place.
        ii.    When you have the box around the section of the image you want to keep press Ctrl and click C to copy the section of the image you want to keep.
    e.    Then still in paint, select File> New>
        i.    when asked if you want to save click no. The image will close and a new blank canvas will open.
    f.    In the new canvas select Edit> paste>
        i.    You will now have the image you want.
        ii.    Then click File> Save>
        iii.    Then select the folder you want to save the image in.


Ultimate TinyMCE Switching between the visual and html editor

As seen on the wordpress forum…

When I switch between the visual and html editor the layout of the code in html editor goes to one line of code. If I switch back to the visual editor and then back to the html editor the layout is corrected.

I haven’t heard of this issue before. You might want to try the typical plugin routine to make sure it is not a plugin conflict.

Hi Josh

Turning off all the other plugins made this problem intermittent 🙁 Sorry I know this makes it worse.


Posted by Josh

Lol… yes, it does 😉

Let’s see…

Other than the options you have set for the buttons group one and the buttons group 2… go ahead and make sure all other options are NOT selected. This includes the options in the admin settings and the miscellaneous features.

Perhaps one of those options in the settings panel is interfering??

Hi Josh

I finally found time today to address the problem at the beginning of this thread. But something in the last two updates has fixed the problem in the Pages editor but not in the Posts editor.

Hello Allan,

Okay. Let’s knock this out!

Can you post a link to a screenshot of the two instances you describe. One of the code in the pages… and another of the code in the posts.

Let me visually see what’s going on, and it should help.

Hi Josh
Here is the link to the two screen shots.

[Plugin: Ultimate TinyMCE] Table layout breaks with image. As on wordpress forum

Hi Guys

This is a bit complicated to explain so I will tell you the steps to create the problem and see if others can recreate it and help to fix it.

1. Create a page
2. In Ultimate TinyMCE create a table 8 colums by 20 rows
3. Select colum 6 and 7 in row 4 down to row 10 so you have a box 2 colums by 7 rows
4. Then from the tables dropdown menu select merge cells.
5. Place an image 300w x 600h in the merge cells.
6. Then in row 4 select colum 1 to 4 and merge the cells
7. Repeat step 6. For rows 6, 8 and 10.
8. In row 4 colum 1 which now spans 4 colums put one word eg TinyMCE and give the merged cells a background color.
9. Then in rows 6, 8 and 10 add a paragraph of text so that in total you have more text than the image is high.
10. Then save the page and view the page in a browser.

If you get the same problem in the browser row 4 will match the height of the image. Strange huh? Any one know how to stop this from happening?

Okay, I tried to replicate this… and aside from feeling like I was playing a tetris video game… I was unable to see what you are describing.

Perhaps you can link to a screenshot where I can see what you mean?
