Copy Google street view?
« on: Monday 20 December 10 02:24 GMT (UK) »
Anyone know how to get a capture of a Google street view? Right-click doesn't produce the Copy/Save function. Found 71 Victoria St, Lytham :)

Cheers,

Hi China

Are you using Google Earth or Google Maps?  I use Google Earth and just saved images of my own house by selecting File, then selecting Save, then selecting Save Image.

Hi Andy....Google Maps. I tried downloading Google Earth twice before, and twice it's crashed my system. So I don't mess with it anymore :P

Guess I'm out of luck...

Hi China,

I agree with xinia.

Alt+ Print Screen puts it on your clipboard. Then use Paint or any other photo s/w to get the image from your clipboard into a new image.

I''l be darned, it worked! Thanks xin, genie, thank you very much indeed.

I'll be taking it to Photo Restore, but there's not much left of it because the original file was sooooo huge. But it's all I need.

Thanks again,
