Dear All,
how I do copy a image from a E - catalogue or do I copy the whole catalogue ?
Some years ago I took the effort to copy the links of all the ( past 10 years or so ) Chinese Ceramics catalogues of Sothebys. And for many years these links enabled me to fast access to any of the catalogues I wanted to browse.
Also the copying of single images of an catalogue was very easy to do for me as an less talented computer user.

Everything did change for me since there are the E - catalogues now.
No more copying of images or catalogues ( except some few exceptions when sometimes there surprisingly is a link to a PDF - version of the catalogue )
What saddens me is that even my above mentioned links to the ordinary catalogues only do work halfways. The images of the lots are now only to see in miniature format and the single lots can not be opened anymore. Here just for example the link for " Sothebys HK. April 07 F. Chin....." :http://browse.sothebys.com/?&cat=1&event_id=28236&g=1&i=1&sale_id=HK0253&nb=1&dp =Chinese+Works+Of+Art&is_past=1

What surprises me is the fact that here in the forum sometimes images as a reference are shown which clearly are copied from Christies or Sothebys E - catalogues.
Who is so kind to learn me that ?
I would also be prepared to spend a small fortune ( expenses for time and effort ) for a CD or an folder with all the available Chinese - catalogues of both houses.

Best regards,
Edmund

Edmund you may already be aware of these but a cheaper albeit incomplete solution may be the annual compendia of auction results for Chinese art that have been published in China for the past decade or so now. As I recall these books do not include multiple photos as the catalogs sometimes do, but cover lots sold at Sothebys, Christies, and several other auction houses as well. Look up "auction catalogs" under Paragon's "browse subjects/China". here's an example: http://www.paragonbook.com/html/browsesubj/fullcitation.cfm?item=5312

Dear David,
thank you very much but I must confess that I am not really interested in Auction Records. I concentrate on the more archievable objects of the midfield and concerning such pieces the online catalogues of Christies and Sothebys are very useful.
Best regards,
Edmund

Hi Edmund,
do you mean something like a screen capture tool? Search for MC Screen Capture (Freeware). I use Ashampoo Snap (Version 3 lässt sich, soviel ich weiss, bei ComputerBild kostenlos herunterladen).
Grüsse
Joerg
Here is for example a (reduced) pic from an upcoming Christie's sale.

Dear Joerg,
großartig ! Thank you very much, I will try this. If I only would not be so stupid which concerns such things :-)

Best regards,
Edmund

Dear Edmund

I was encountering the same problem some time ago. I discovered the tool called "Screenhunter". A very very useful tool for capturing anything you see on the screen. Not just pictures.

With a single shortcut key (you can choose it yourself) a mousepointer pops up with a horizontal and a vertical ruler for selecting the area on your screen you want to save. just one click and it's saved to the folder you selected or created for it. This tool is always running in the background so you can use it anytime you like.
It's very easy in use.

Dear Frederik,
thank you, very kind of you but I did already try Joerg´s Ashampoo Snap 3 and it works. Must be quite the same.
I still would like to know whether there is a tool that makes it possible to copy resp. to safe an entire E - catalogue.

Best regards,
Edmund

Hi Edmund

You can do it in this way:

1. Choose to view E-catalogue
2. Choose "Printable catalogue" in the right upper corner
3. Choose "Entire catalogue" and "Full page"

Then you get a Pdf-file you can "save as" on your computer.

Regards Tommy
