Possibly "canvas" rather than "canvass" would yield results. Possibly not.
What's special about HyperSnap DX, anyway?
I'd like to recommend a terrific open-source app called "FastStone Capture."
Easy to increase canvas size. I've also used the capture tool in Paintshop
Pro, and it, too, provides an easy way to increase canvas size without
affecting the image.
