There are times when I want to have an image that consists of two captures that are "sewn" together.  This is because there are times when the scroll function doesn't work and so I would like to do one capture, change the screen and then do a second capture and join them so they become one image that the viewer would never know required putting two pieces together. Is this possible?

I simply copy one image into the other and drag to line up where needed.

Sure , take one of the captures.
Grab the outside bounding handle and drag. This will increase the size of the canvas. How far it needs to be dragged will depend on the image. You can crop it later it need be.
Here I am dragging downward.
You may have to zoom out to make room, this is strictly an example.


Now I'm dragging in the lower half.



Line up the 2 images.
You'll probably need to zoom in tight and use the arrow keys to nudge it into place.
Hold shift to move one pixel at a time.

Regards,Joe

You guys are geniuses!!! Joe, thanks for the details. Really brilliant. I had no idea that I could put two images together like that. I love this program. I use it every day, but there are still so many tricks I don't know. Thanks very much. :)
