Opening a saved file

Post by Portech7 » Wed Jul 10, 2019 6:50 pm

Hi All

Firstly, thank you for letting me join the forum.

I'm new to Sharpcap, so please excuse my silly question.

I've just downloaded the pro version and trying to figure out how I can open a JPEG file saved on my PC previous to using sharpcap. Struggling to find out where it explains this in the manual.

Its a JPEG file I captured in Altaircap but of which I'd like to adjust in sharpcap.

Thanks all :)

Hi,

Postprocessing previously captured images is not something that SharpCap is really designed to do, but you can if you really want to by using the 'test camera 1' camera which allows you to browse for an image file on disk to use as the image being shown. You will see the browse button at the top of the testing control section on the right-hand side.

Cheers, Robin

Hi,

You only select one dark file. That file can be a master dark that has been created by averaging many individual dark frames together though. SharpCap also has a tool to help you make master dark files – look in the capture menu.

Cheers, Robin
