OK, another brilliant app under Mac.

I really hope Mouser's Screenshot Captor could do this  Grin

and some post-processing special effects would be cool. OK I am trying to describe one, sorry for my bad English

Put the 'layers' in 3D view, separate the window layers Z-distence a bit, and view the windows from a tilt angle for extemely cool screenshot.

The screenshot will somehow like the Salesforce for Google Apps: Product Tour

Or just like Vista's 3D Aero switch but more realist and screenshot-like. The relative position of window remain unchanged.

this is a case where it would be nice to interface some effects programs to screenshot captor -- but i dont think it makes sense to start building in every possible effect into the main program.

Thanks for the reply mouser  Grin

IMO this is not an 'effect', but rather a improvment of the capture engine. Technically speaking taking a full screenshot is get hWnd 0x00 DC and convert it to bitmap. But apps like Layers is a innovation in the capture process, you have to iterate the active & non-active window to get the whole picture.

There are a lot of screen capture software out there, but one function might make Screenshot Captor unique is layered screenshot. If Screenshot Captor do not implement this, I think some other software might fill the gap.
