I echo Samer's findings.  Screenshot Captor is the best screenshot software out there.  Thanks Mouser (and congratulations for the well-deserved praise).

Thank you for the post and the kind words jaden.  It means a lot to me to hear people like the software and like DC.

This program is good as Irfan View and a little better for me, i am speaking for myself, and although its free i really like this and i am going to replace my Irfanview with this program, thanks Mouser, can't believe this Forum has quite good coders.

Is their any option to autosave the screenshot taken to be placed in the Desktop, i downloaded the portable version and its default location seems to be.c:\ScreenshotCaptorPortable\Screenshots\
Is their any way i can change that to Desktop, after each  snapshot it will ask for where you want to place the file to be saved, that is which i changed it with the feature After Capture :Hide the Main Form.
But it will save in c:\ScreenshotCaptorPortable\Screenshots\   : is their any way i can change that to Desktop.


Great program.

in preferences,
"Screenshot folder & tools" for location of screenshot folder
"Interface Options 1" for choice of automatic save ("stay minimised") or pop-up dialogue (read the "Tip" there)

Yeah i got it now, stupid of me not to see those options, anyway besides integrating with a wide range of format , which irfanview does with its slidshow viewer this tool has the ability to take snapshots with a hotkey , that is what it make it a winner tool then irfanview.

 Thank you again.
Definitely a keeper.

It'd be interesting to know just how many hours mouser has spent developing Screenshot Captor.

Ditto. I'd love it if every app said that in the About box.

Congratulations to mouser!

FreewareGenius has updated their review of Mouser's Screenshot Captor with these nice words:
Quote
I am quite happy about this development, but also grateful that the developer took the time to address an issue that I raised in my original review of this program; I quote “I want you to know I really took [the review] to heart and it was the primary reason i just finished 8 hours of coding to add that feature:. So, thanks go to Mouser of DonationCoder for all his hard work (and also for a very good implementation).

Just another reason why Mouser and the whole DonationCoder community seems so highly regarded.  Congratulations!  Thmbsup

To me, it is only "best in class" if it actually covers people's workflows. I have been begging working with Mouser to implement about 2-3 features that keep me from using it. All told they are quite easy fixes. Im my opinion, on a broad level a High End Solution (eek did I say that?) needs to totally subsume the abilities of certain low level apps. Fortunately, my modest requirements are easy to do, and Mouser has already implemented one, and the second one is ... uh... under negotiation.

Then once certain workflows are covered, you can do the switchover.

Nah Mouser, you deserve it - because you are entertaining a couple of "minor features" is why you will rule screenshots : )

I consider myself something of an expert on screenshot software. For years screenshots have been a staple of my work at AfterDawn. My philosophy for writing guides is to come up with images that explain a process in full. The text is just there to flesh out the details.

IMO there is only 1 program even in the same class with Screenshot Captor and that's SnapDraw. The 2 programs use basically the same object compositing approach. In fact they share most of the same core features but SnapDraw is oriented almost entirely toward doing things 1 way and Screenshot Captor is designed to customize for whatever workflow you want. It also has more and better actual image processing.

I do miss the separate preview tab from SnapDraw and also its option to composite a new capture on top of an already open one. There are also some cool resize and crop options which are cool in theory but I usually ended up fine tuning everything via text box anyway so no big deal. SnapDraw also has an Autonumber feature for its version of Arrows (Callouts) that was handy for me because I'm scatterbrained but not important as long as I can easily go back and change things manually.

The tldr version is that SnapDraw is best for doing things the SnapDraw way and Screenshot Captor is the best for everything else. Or to borrow an analogy a programmer I worked with used to compare VB and Delphi, SnapDraw makes the easy things easier. Screenshot Captor makes the hard things easier.

Only few words for Mouser's Screenshot Captor: the best one!

Congrats Mouser!
