mwexler Posted November 10, 2009 Share Posted November 10, 2009 I have been a big fan of the combination of the Greenshot open source Screen Capture program (http://sourceforge.net/projects/greenshot/) and Paint.net. However, I just upgraded to v3.5 and now can no longer paste large images from Greenshot. Instead, I get the "The image in the clipboard could not be recognized. Try re-copying it with the original application that was used to acquire it" popup. In testing, it appears that small clips do copy fine, but a full screen copy and paste no longer works. So, I can get pastes in of about 1050 or so by 650 pixels with standard 32-bit color. Bigger than that, however, in either dimension, and I get the "not be recognized" message. These larger images were handled fine by 3.3 and other versions. Did something change in the handling of pasting in this new version? Any suggestions beyond "buy snagit" and "make smaller shots and manually stitch them together"? Windows XP SP2, 2gb ram, brand new HP laptop.
