The "Capture" tab allows you to capture images in different ways i.e, one at a time, automated using a "trigger", and time lapse capture. This tab also allows you to capture images in different file formats like BMP and JPEG.


How to Manipulate the Controls

Time Lapse Capture



Check the Time Lapse Capture box to capture a series of images over a period of time. The fields will be highlighted when the box is checked. Click and enter a value for "Capture Every" to capture an image for every period specified of the duration/time.  


Preview Image after Capture



Check the box "Preview Image After Capture" to automatically display the image immediately after the capture. The image will be displayed in a default windows image viewer.


Increment File Name After Capture


Check the box "Increment file name after capture" to add a number to the end of the captured image file name so that already existing captured images are not overwritten. For example, if the entered image name is "Picture" the fist time an image is captured it will be saved as "Picture1". Following captured images will be named "Picture2", "Picture3", "Picture4", etc.
