A Better Way To Take Screenshots Of Movies With Subtitles!


I take a lot of screenshots(just press SHIFT + S or select Take screenshot from Video drop down menu) when I am watching movies. Few days back I was watching The Matrix and I wanted a take screenshot of this quote.



However the entire quote is present in two different frames. I used to use image editor and join those two images and keep them in my screenshots folder.

Today as I was thinking about a better solution for this. I got this idea of editing subtitles. I opened the subtitles files and edited this part  

753

01:06:45,251 --> 01:06:47,085


To deny our own impulses...




754


01:06:47,336 --> 01:06:50,463


... is to deny the very thing


that makes us human. 

and changed to this


753


01:06:45,251 --> 01:06:47,085


To deny our own impulses is to deny the very thing


that makes us human. 

which made it possible to capture the entire quote in a single frame.


Of course this is not the best method but it is far better than editing and joining couple of images.
