Auto-save & rename images copied to clipboard

Frank99's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
When I create a screenshot with the "Print Screen" button, a ClipboardFusion notification window pops up, and I can right-click on it to save the image. Is there any way to automatically save all.PNG files and/or all image files that appear on my clipboard to my Downloads folder? Also, is there any way to automatically rename them or to have CF prompt me for the name I would like?

In the repository there's a macro called "Save Copied Image to Disk" that will do this. You can edit the folder path on line 11, and then run it from a Trigger rule that uses the "Clipboard Changed" Trigger Event.

Hope that helps!

It works, but now when I paste text, it gives me a message box "the clipboard does not contain a picture". Can you give me a version without any message boxes? I tried to fix it myself but was not able to to get one that verified properly.

If you comment out lines 22, 23, and 24, so they look like this:

Code


That should do the trick :)

For some reason it's invalid. Please see the attached macro. I just want it with no notifications.

A new problem has popped up. Whenever I save cells in Excel, I'm finding that CF is saving a picture in .png format. Any idea why this is happening or how to stop it?

That'll be happening because Excel puts multiple formats on the clipboard, including images. I'll have a look at this macro some time this week to see if I can ignore the images for Excel.
