How to drag and drop images with PictureImp?
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.

How to add, edit or delete a profile?
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.


How to add, edit or delete a basket?
To add a new basket, you need to run PictureImp or right-click on its tray icon and choose ‘Options’. Click the ‘Add’ button, enter the name of the basket, select its color, text color and then click ‘OK’. In the ‘Options’ dialog, set the folder where you want to save images and optionally, set the naming template in the ‘Naming Rules’ dialog. When all is set, click ‘Apply’ and then ‘OK’. That’s all. Next time you bring up PictureImp, you’ll see a new basket.

To edit a basket, go the ‘Options’ dialog, and edit whatever you want: the destination path, naming rules, or the look of the basket.

To delete a basket, go to the ‘Options’ dialog, select the basket profile and click ‘Delete’.


How to add, edit or delete the destination paths for saving images?
To add a path, you need to set up a basket profile in the ‘Options’ dialog. Then click the ‘Add’ button and browse to the folder you want to save your images to.

To edit a path, open the ‘Options’ dialog, select the basket profile, click the ‘Change’ button, and re-select the folder you want to save your images to.

To delete a path, open the ‘Options’ dialog, select the basket profile, click the ‘Remove’ button under the ‘Destination paths’ window.

There is an opportunity to set up several destination paths for one basket. In this case, each of the paths may have its own naming rule.


How to set up a naming template?
By default, PictureImp saves images under their original names. But you can set up your own naming template and it will re-name images according to the mask.

To set up a naming template, open the ‘Options’ dialog, click the ‘Naming Rules’ button, and in the dialog that opens, select ‘Use template’ option. Now you can set up a file name mask using the following parameters: <source>, <site.url>, <site url>, <i>, <ii>, <iii>, <iiii>, <yyyy>, <yy>, <mm>, <dd>, <h>, <m>, <s>. Then, you can set the names and file extensions to be converted to lower case or upper case. And finally you can specify the action if the file already exists, which can be overwriting the file or adding a number by mask <i> to its name.


How to arrange baskets?
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.

How to work with General settings?
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.

What are the limitations of the free demo version?
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.
