Added some feature improvements to the region capture mode:
v4.8.8 - September 30, 2014
[MajorFeature] New action available when dropping an image file onto the current image: Combine images. Let's you easily line up images side by side with automatic scaling.
[Feature] Made it easier to abort scrolling and other capture operations (tray menu changes to display a cancel operation item).
[Feature] Added commandline option to change save file format.
[Feature] Added tools menu to SC system tray menu.
[Feature] When SC encounters an image file of a different format than the extension indicates, it is still loaded but a warning is shown.
[Feature] When SC encounters an error loading an image file, it reports the error and clears the current image selection.
[Feature] Select-region capture can now be performed in additional ways; you can use enter key to start and end capture regions (space bar resets initial position; cursor keys nudge; C toggles cursor; Z toggles zoom); quick single mouse click can also now mark start and end positions instead of holding and dragging.
[Feature] By default SC now checks if a capture is all white or all black, and reports the probable cause (interference from a Security App); see Tweaks option tab to turn this off.
[MinorFeature] You can now set a Screenshot directory that SC will always start with even if you changed directories on last run.
[MinorFeature] You can now use cursor (arrow) keys to adjust cursor location during shift+PrtScr selected region capture.
[MinorFeature] Added Up/Down keys to scrolling capture methods.
[MinorFeature] Better instructions for manual scrolling captures.
[MinorFeature] Better handling of canceled dropped file.
[MinorFeature] The warning about resizing images with objects can now be disabled.
[MinorFeature] Changed upload menu icon.
[MinorFeature] 'C' key in region-select mode can now be used to toggle off the display/capture of cursor.
[BugFix] DPI was sometimes not set properly if SC was set to not save image automatically.
[BugFix] It was possible to restore main SC window and then minimize it during scrolling capture, rendering all SC windows invisible.
[BugFix] Red box was flickering in object selection mode.
[BugFix] If using post-capture dialog after captures, and "stay hidden" option is chosen, main window was sometimes restoring if it was showing before capture was initiated.
[BugFix] Nudging selection with arrow keys in region-select mode had an annoying delay/stutter.

I'm thinking that what would really be useful is if i collected a list of the tools people like to use with SC, and made a special page for them -- with urls, tips, and how they are useful. Sort of a page for people who use SC to help them find tools that will make their lives easier.
