Saving pictures off of Adobe Reader

OK. I figured it out. If you've ever used adobe reader lets say for the FSM (factory service manual), you know there are tons of pics on there. Ever just want to save the picture then email/post it for someone. Well I want to all the time but never could figure it out. It'll would just save the pic to the clipboard and then you could save it has a .clp file but thats just for adobe reader to use. You cant upload those to the ZU.

Well here's how you do it.

--------------------------------
1. Open the PDF file.

2. Find what you want copied.

3a. Now you can either select the "select button". It's right of the "hand" button and left of the "snapshot" button. Now use the left mouse button to "highlight" what you want to copy. Then right click and select "copy to clip board"

3b. Other option is to select the "snapshot" button. Left click to highlight what you want then once you left off the mouse button it'll directly copy it to the clipboard so make sure you get what you want or you'll have to do it again.

4. Open clipboard by going to "window" tab and selecting clipboad viewer.

5. Now save the file on your computer where you want it. It'll save the file as a .clp file. That's what Adobe reader sees.

6. Now use the picture program IrfanView (Its free and can pretty much view any type of pic and can save them as any type.) to view the .clp file you saved by right clicking the file and click "open with". IF Irfanview isnt there, you'll have to manually find it on your computer.

7. Once you have it open now click the "save" button and save the file as .jpg (or any other file you wish to). There's a little tab on the top right of the save box that'll let you choose the quality of the save. I put it on 100% and if the pic is too big, then I'll use Microsoft's power tool "resizer" to make the pic smaller.

8. There you have it. Took my 5 minutes to figure it out. Have fun.

saving pictures, Part two...

I never knew that, rangerscott69! Clever!

Here is a more primative way to grab a picture off a PDF document (or anything that you can see on your monitor for that matter):

1. Arrange the scroll bars (if any) on a particular page/document/application until all the visual information that you want to save can be seen on your monitor.

2. Press the "Print Screen/SysRq" button on your PC keyboard (Sorry Mac owners, I don't know if there is an equivalant feature on your OS). This copies everything on the monitor image to the clipboard.

3. Open a graphic application. Windows Paint is the easiest to work with - it is included as a part of Windows.

4. Use the "Paste" function (Edit -Paste or Ctrl-V) to copy the contents of the clipboard to the Paint program (or whatever graphic program that you are using).

5. Trim down the image to where only what you want to see is visible. In Paint, you can slide the pasted image up and to the left to delete unneeded material at the top or on the left. To move the right or bottom edge of the image, select any other tool from the toolbox window to exit the Image Edit mode. Find the bottom right corner and click on the tiny blue box in the corner. Drag that box up and to the left until you have framed the image deleteing all uneeded stuff from the original screenshot. There are also tiny blue adjustment boxes in the center of the bottom and right edges of the image box that you can use to resize the dimensions of the image.

6. Once you have the image exactly as you want it, save it to any format that your graphic progam allows. With Windows Paint, I always save to a 32-bit BMP file for maximum resolution (with the Paint program) for later editing then "Save As" using the JPG or (in some newer versions of Paint) PNG format if I want to post the image.

This is basically how I create graphics from the FSM and other interesting documents for my posts and articles.

I hope that this helps!
