Get Ript Before Creating Your Next Online Scrapbook

06Feb08

Ript is a fun little tool that allows you to rip photos and text from a web page and create scrapbooks, to-do lists, and whatever else you can think of.  You have to download it first (8.7MB)  and then after you launch it you’ll see a little pile of scraps in the corner of your browser.  That’s where you put the items you’re ripping from the web.  All you need to do is click on an item and drag it over to the pile.  You’ll hear a little tearing noise and then you’ll know the item has been Ript.  When you’re all through, you can re-size images, add text, create multiple pages of Ript items, and save or email your project.  Here’s my screencast tour of Ript:

    The flipover transitions are nice. Go easy on the zooming, though — your posts are high rez and mostly don’t require it, and it gets distracting.

    Yeah, Ript is pretty slick. Nice word play.

  2. Thanks, Mark. Yeah, the zooming is absolutely psychotic. It’s called smart focus and it’s mostly automatic (if enabled) in Camtasia v.5. I actually removed some of it. Just wanted to see what everyone thought. It’s a nice feature if used in moderation.

  3. By now you probably worked out how to change Text size. Anyway here’s my contribution. I really like ript all my friend are now on it Thxs Molly.
    Just aAdd the text you want. Click anywhere outside the box. Then click again in the text box. You know have an Image like any other (photo) You can size it by pulling handles, rotate, position, flip – for notes. Can’t change the color or font …. yet.
    Hope that helps

  4. Hi Molly. I should have added above. To create this in photoshop would take (me)10 -20 minutes. To produce a six shot Ript Jpeg less than 7 yes seven seconds. (Yes I know it should be “new” not knew above …sorry)

  5. Hi Molly,

    Thanks for taking the time to create a screencast of Ript. We appreciate you spreading the word. Hope you enjoy using Ript.

    FYI, I posted a link to your screencast from our blog (URL: http://www.ript.com/blog/?p=31).

    Cheers,
