Windows 10: Does a Photo 'Snipped' from a Website lose any quality? Solved

    Does a Photo 'Snipped' from a Website lose any quality?


    The 'Snip' is one of my Favourite tools in the Box in Windows 10

    As when I'm building a Website for someone, if they have a Photo Online that they would like me to use on their Site, then rather than download it from an email, that 'may' contain a Virus from someone I don't know, I can just 'Snip it' and Paste it, into their New Website.

    But does the Photo lose any Quality, when its done this way?

    Depends


    It depends.
    Pictures are often resized (smaller) on web pages.
    If you take a screenshot (or snip) you may be capturing the smaller image.

    FF and its spin-offs (Pale Moon, WaterFox, etc.) have a "View Image" and "View Image Info" options in their context menus.
    They also have a "Page Info" option which allows you to view all of the individual elements on a page.

    Note:
    If the image is in a Flash gallery you probably have no choice other than to take screenshots.

    Hi and Thanks

    I haven't really noticed any loss of quality so far except when Capturing a small image and then expanding it, in which case I ask the Customer to put up a larger image, which I can capture with a 'Snip'

    Since Windows screenshots ("Windows Key + PrtScn") and snips are png files, they should be WYSIWYG. :)
