I've been hunting for a screen capture tool that would allow easy/fast grabbing of square croppings of larger images my clients draw. I needed to:
- Draw a square capture area.
- Change its size on the fly.
- Move it around before grabbing the clip, to get just the right positioning.
- Grab it and save to both clipboard and a file.
Screenshot Captor does the job admirably. I set an average-size square capture area in Options/Favorites in the first position. I press my hotkey for Grab Selected Region, press 1 to set my square aspect ratio, press Alt and continue to move the mouse pointer to adjust the size, center the square, and click the mouse key to capture it. Then use the Pop-Up Choice Dialog to save to clipboard and file. Smooth, fast, easy. No other solution I've found does this so elegantly.
One question: Is there a way to automatically send the capture to clipboard while retaining the ability to save it to file? I thought I saw an option like that but can't find it now. For now, clicking the button on the Pop-Up Choice Dialog does it, but maybe there's a way to have it be automatic?
Thanks to @mouser for tipping me off to this feature!!
