Well, as you browse pages and stumble upon an image you want to have on your hard disk, you need to click on the PictureImp icon in the system tray. It pops up a small basket that is floating over the page. Now drag and drop the image into the basket. That’s it. You can continue browsing pages and have the basket floating on top or you can minimize it to the tray again.
PictureImp allows you to make several profiles, each with its own configuration of baskets, and swap between them in one click as you browse the Internet.
To add a new profile, go to the Options dialog and click the “…” button. This opens the Manage Profiles dialog. Now Click the Add button, enter the name of the new profile. That’s it.
To edit a profile, go to the Options dialog and click the “…” button. In the Manage Profiles dialog that opens, select the profile and click the Edit button. Now you can re-enter the name of the profile.
To delete a profile, go to the Options dialog and click the “…” button. In the Manage Profiles dialog that opens, select the profile and click the Delete button.
If you have more than one basket, you can arrange the layout in which they appear on the screen. Open the ‘Options’ dialog, select the basket profile and click on the ‘Up’ or ‘Down’ buttons to move the basket to the top position or to the bottom.
In addition to the basket-specific settings, the ‘Options’ dialog has a ‘General settings’ tab. There you can set the program window transparency, resize the basket, set the program to be launched and / or minimized to the tray automatically. The program can be set to remember its window placement on the desktop, show its window title and basket name.
The demo version is made for evaluation purposes and has some limitations:
1. The program pops up a nag screen when it is launched and after a certain number of operations done by the user;
2. The user can create only two profiles;
3. The user can create only two baskets in the first profile;
4. The user can create only one basket in the second profile.
