To Take a Delayed Snapshot

When taking a snapshot of a menu or some other pop-up or pull-down element, you can delay the time between clicking Snap and the snapshot being taken.

  1. If Snapshot is not running, choose Snapshot from the Image Viewer File menu.

  2. Determine the number of seconds to delay by using the down arrow button and selecting a value or by typing in the text field.

    The next time you click Snap, the snapshot will be delayed by the specified number of seconds.

  3. (Optional) If you want to hear the seconds counted off before the snapshot is taken, select Beep During Countdown.

  4. Select a Snap Type and click Snap.

    If Snap Type is Region, drag mouse button 1 to select the region to be snapped.

  5. Make any necessary adjustments to the image during the snap delay time.

    You can display a menu, for instance, by clicking on an item in a menu bar.

    After the specified number of seconds, the window, region, or screen is snapped and "Snap succeeded" is displayed in the message area at the bottom of the window.
