Screenshot Captor / Re: help with automatic file naming
« on: February 25, 2013, 12:11 PM »
I tried %quickfield% and it works well for me.  The first file in the series gets named screenshot.png.  The second, screenshot002.png, and so on.  If I delete those files or move them to another folder, we begin again with no suffix and then 002 etc.  I can live with this.  I also tried %numinc% and quickly changed to
instead, since I don't like to start with a digit, I don't know why.  This works very well, the only downside is that it gives me five digits, which is a lot, but I can live with it.


Screenshot Captor / how get better resolution?

I want to take a screenshot of a portion of  My ultimate goal is to include it in a wordpress page, and there the image should be 350 px wide.  Here are the choices I have thought of:

1. zoom out in the browser until I can fit the body into a 350 px wide Captor fixed frame; upload it to WordPress and insert it in full size.

2. leave the browser at 100% and make the capture at a lot more pixels.  Now I can resize the image with Captor, an editor such as irfanview or photoshop, or within the wordpress software.

What would give me good results (clear type, reasonable load time) but also give me a good workflow?

I have been saving my captures as png.

I know I've posted several questions today (sorry!), but this one is higher priority than the others.  Thanks.

Screenshot Captor / feature request: zoom buttons (+, -) - not urgent

In general, the more you can make using the software feel like other software people tend to use often, such as MS Word, foxit, firefox, and the simpler screenshot capture programs, the easier it will be for new users to start to get the hang of the Captor.  As they get comfortable, they will want to delve deeper to learn more sophisticated options.  Example: zoom.  In Word, Excel and foxit, there is a simple plus and minus at the bottom right for getting bigger and smaller.  In Captor, I need a + and a -.  They don't have to be at the bottom right.  Thank you.

I would like to change the folder where images get saved automatically, each time I start a new project.  And I would like shorter file names.  I do like not having to think about the file name each time I make a screenshot, though.  I would not mind thinking for the first filename in the sequence, if that would help.

For uploading the images to wordpress, it would be easiest if the filenames in the group were numbered in sequence.  It's okay if some numbers get skipped (due to me removing some images that didn't come out well).

Is it possible to name the screenshots based on the name of the folder I specified the files should be saved to?

Example.  A tutorial about installing WordPress.  I will name the folder wp-tut, and it would be lovely if the files were called wp-tut1, wp-tut2, etc.  However, wp-tut001 and wp-tut002 would be okay too.  Note that occasionally I will have double digits, but never triple.
