    Default How to remove unwanted area within an image

    I have taken screenshot of a web page and had removed all unwanted things in iv itself.

    All sides-top-bottom things are gone for good, but that leaves an area embedded within the image that I don't want.

    see here

    How to I remove this horizonal strip of black area in irfanview so that top bottom areas are together as a single image.

    Thanks

    1. Select the Newspaper Heading at the top
    2. Copy it to the clipboard with Ctrl+C
    3. While it is still selected, Shift+Down cursor to move the selection area down
    4. Paste Ctrl+V
    5. With the heading still selected, grab the bottom of the selection with the two-way arrow cursor and drag it down to the bottom of the image
    6. Crop to the selection (Ctrl+Y)


    BTW: To save screenshots that are mostly text, use the PNG format. They will be sharper and usually smaller than JPG images. JPG format is ideal for photographs, where there are many colours, but whenever there are only a few colours, PNG compression is much better.

    To upload images to the forum use the insert Picture icon. Note that I have used PNG format and my image is less than half the size on disk, compared to yours, although the dimensions are similar.

    small correction -"Copy it to the clipboard with Ctrl+V"
    should be - Copy it to the clipboard with Ctrl+"C"
    :-)
    I could make it out easily.

    Smile Solved.

    Thanks Bhikkhu ji,

    that was so easy, knowing that this is the way of doing it.

    Thanks a gig.

    about PNG, yeah, those images are clearer, but file size is huge so I am used to use small size jpg. But you are right, now that net is far less costlier, I should change my old habit.

    about pic icon, no icon appears in my compose window, may be I had selected text only composing at some time. Shall figure out where that option is and shall change.

    Thanks.
