Screenshot Captor Default Image File Format Issue
« on: March 24, 2012, 08:48:24 AM »
I have set the default image format to be JPG in Preferences/Image File Format.

When I use the program and click on "Save Image As", it is still set for the PCX image format.

I was hoping that when I captured an image it would be saved as a JPG image.

Am I not understanding something or missing a step?

Please help.

Likewise for me on Save Copy of Image As, with PNG set as the default.

Just to confirm:
The problem is not that you cant select jpg in the save as -- just that the DEFAULT is not jpg right?

I can fix that.

Just so I'm clear on this.  By setting the default to JPG, any image should be saved as a JPG unless I manually change it, right?

Right now the default is JPG but the suggested "Save Image As" comes up as a PCX format so I manually change it every time I use the program.

Testing the problem...
1st shot-
Changing the default to jpg, it wanted to save as png - my original default- till i changed it manually to jpg.
2nd shot auto saved to jpg as is set in the default.
Not having the same problem here-only had to manually change once, after changing default.
Then it stuck with it.

Maybe reinstall SSC or upgrade to latest if you haven't yet.
Here's the default page I assume you use-

Downloaded latest version.

Seems to be fine now.

Thank you very much.
