How exactly would you want to use such a feature from within Screenshot Captor?

well, the pictures will be kept by date on the harddrive? I think it is quite useful. I had used a screencapture software with that feature before. This way one folder wont be filled with huge number of files.

My suggestion is ability to modify file parameters. I know we can modify the file with number of options but none of the file options can create folders.

i could easily extend it so that you could specify subdirectory paths in the file naming feature, which will be created if needed.  sounds like what you are asking for.  the only slight issue is that when you bring up screenshot captor from the tray, you might not see your screenshot if its filed in a subdirectory.. unless i had SC auto switch to the directory the last file was saved in, which wouldnt be a bad idea..

Yeah that is what I am talking about. Also autoswitching is not a bad idea.


Thanks again.

this is a good idea as the same concept is applied to Canon scanners where scanned images are placed in a (sub)folder based on the scanned date.
