Sikuli not mathing images taken with native MAC OSX Screen Snipping Tool

Asked by Chris Rhoads on 2017-04-17

I'm having issues with sikuli matching images.
I'm writing a selenium script in Java with sikuli-api 1.2.0 that logs into a remote pc program, finds a terminal by image of its terminal ID, clicks it and then downloads a client zip file.

It mostly works except sikuli is only able to recognize and act on 1 image and Ive got about 30 I need to use.

The one image that it recognizes was taken with Nimbus screenshot tool, the rest were taken with the native Mac OSX screen shot tool.

wsRibId gets recognized - taken with Nimbus
lmiDownloadBarIcon - not recognized taken with native MAC tool

Both are in the same folder within the project.

Ive tried with and without similarity with their pattern objects....

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Code is below.

At this point the zip file will be visible in the lower dock of the Chrome Window, which is where the script fails.
Ive tried with several other images as well, using keyEvents to tab to the downloads folder and then look for the
FileName.zip and click or double click on it, I cant get anything to locate.

I had to switch to the mac screenshot tool in orfer to capture outside a web page but many tutorials I have seen
using snippet and navigated Windows file structure based purely on images and it works for them.

not sure with what Sikuli you are working (sikuli-api 1.2.0 does not fit with your dump).

In any case you should try with the latest version 1.1.1 (http://sikulix.com).

Chris Rhoads (crhoads1024) said : #2

Will verify and update.

Chris Rhoads (crhoads1024) said : #3

Verified and Reinstalled sikulixapi.jar v1.1.1 into my java project.

Image matching issue still existing.

After much experimentation I discovered the issue is with the images themselves.

The native mac OS snipping tool does not take the image at the proper resolution, it seems retina resolution is too high.

I used Apowersoft Mac Screenshot.

In order for it to work you must set its resolution to 'Standard' and not retina.

The screenshots I took with this resolution setting began working immediately.

I hope this helps anyone else struggling with this!
