Actually you cannot get the coordinates of selected region and no other image formats included.

For the coordinates, I will add CRect function to get the x1, y1, x2, y2 coordinates of user selected area on the screen ex: HBITMAP GetRegionImage(LPRECT lprc);

For captured image format, nothing new! Your app need to convert HBITMAP Handle to other image format.

===== Last week, one people offer me 1500$ US to have the source code and at this moment, I dont know if I will accept this offer. =====
