looking for quick image save function.
Posted 18 August 2012 - 03:10 PM
im a absolute noob in this kind of suff but i have a "problem" that is extremly tedious.
I often gets in this kind of situration then i have collected several images on google/ deviantart or any other image site, i often land on 20-30 images and i want to save them for reference purposes. ( since i am an artist)
So you can understand the frustration and tediousness of right click - save image x 30 times.
I got a tip from a friend about this site, so i am asking for help on how to solve my problem.
Is it hard to create something in autoit?,or have you guys allready solved my problem with an existing script?
im currently using chrome right know if that helps, and one other thing i would mention is that i have this condition called Dyscalculia ( same as dyslexia but with numbers and digets. so that results in having very hard time understanding programming and that kinds of stuff.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum.
Not particularly - what you want should not be too difficult to do.
Is it hard to create something in autoit?
What I would suggest is that you set a HotKey to run a script when you press it - this script would then use the current mouse position and do all the right-click and save for you. So what you need to do now is list exactly what actions you need to take to do what you want - something like this:
Right Click Wait for a dialog (what is its title?) Enter a filename (do you want to have an ever-increasing index number, or perhaps a date-time group, to distinguish the images?) Press a button (what does the button have as text?)
I would also suggest that you take a look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here - those 2 plus the Help file (particularly the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you get an idea of what AutoIt can do and how to write scripts. We are here to help you, but we prefer to teach you how to do it yourself rather then just write scripts for you.
