The Snipping Tool is a FREE Windows 7 tool, perhaps TechnoMage does not know how to access and use it. I also have it in my taskbar, I use it so often.

And we can all use Print Screen -> Clipboard and copy the result to any image or photo programme we have.

And yes, some of us can also read, write and speak French.
Gee, that is a strange response? We, They, Us, French.....................?
I would speak "French" but Mama told me not to use those words.
It is perfectly fine to do that if you preface the words with "Pardon my French".

Mama didn't think so.

I've used snipping tool since it was added to windows. I has to take some of my college courses online and send in images of certain items. It works great as a study tool to capture things and edit them. I love it and hope MS doesn't get rid of it.

I use snipping tool a lot, and I found this problem too. In my case, I looked ta the way it looks onscreen. If it appears to be wider than longer, I printed in Landscape. If not, Portrait. I lost parts of images before I found that.

Then I found a setting in my printer's software that gave me "Auto Portrait/Landscape" and I use that when printing from a snipping Capture. It is also useful to copy the Capture image into Paint, paste and edit in your image software.
Hi Bertison,

Thanks for your input.

I tried what you suggested but it didn't work for me. Maybe it's my printer or maybe it's Microsoft Word. I have tried everything but the only thing that works for me is to rotate the image slightly before I print it. It looks weird but what else can I do?

Thanks, Paul

Why are you pasting the snippet to MS Word. Word is as you know a "Word" processor. Try pasting the snippet to Paint or some other image editor or viewer. Irfanview is a good one and free to boot!
How about saving one of you snippets to a PNG file, posting it here on the Forum then we can see if we have the same problem?

It works fine in Paint. I was just hoping to use Word. I'll try Irfanview. Maybe I'll like that one.

I often put together documents in Word with text I create interspersed with "snips" pasted in directly from Win 7's Snipping Tool. It would be a pain in my ample asset to have to use an intermediary step, such as Paint, etc., especially since pasting directly from the tool is so much faster and easier.

MS Word 2010 (the version I use), as well as its predecessor, 2007 (and, to a lesser degree, 2003) has surprisingly good basic image editing tools as long as one only needs the basics: cropping, relocating the image, resizing the image that appears in the document (the amount of storage space needed by the image doesn't change, however; a 400KB image still takes up 400KB after cropping it in half but that also allows one to restore the cropped portion of the image down the road), etc.

I tried duplicating the OP's problem with images taken by Win 7's Snipping Tool and pasted into Word docs, both from the clipboard when the "snip" was made without saving it and from a saved "snipped" image, usually .jpg, and they stayed stable when document was printed out. Mayhap I misunderstood exactly what it is the OP is doing?

Edit: I just remembered I once printed a photo on regular letter sized paper a while back just to see how well my printer reproduced colors (I still have the printout hanging up in my room to see if the colors fade any over time). The quick and dirty way was to paste the .jpg into Word (since my camera was set for wide screen resolution, I pasted the photo into the Word doc (no text) with the page set to landscape. There was no cropping on the printout.
