LATEST VERSION:
v4.9.1 - October 10, 2014
  • [Feature] You can now control what happens when you hit Ctrl+C (see More Interface Options tab); previously it always did a context-sensitive copy-to-clipboard, copying currently selected region or object if there was one; you can now configure this to always copy whole image to clipboard.
  • [Feature] Copy-to-clipboard menus now show a more informative context-sensitive caption and include an additional item for copying whole image, in addition to copying selected region or object.
  • [Feature] Better copy-to-clipboard behavior.
  • [BugFix] Selected region copy was causing some issues for some users, a Range Check Error [thanks TimB!]

  • [Feature] Select-region capture can now be performed in additional ways; you can use enter key or spacebar to start and end capture regions (escape cancels; cursor keys nudge; C toggles cursor; Z toggles zoom); quick single mouse click can also now mark start and end positions instead of holding and dragging.
  • [Feature] By default SC now checks if a capture is all white or all black, and reports the probable cause (interference from a Security App); see Tweaks option tab to turn this off.

  • [BugFix] If using post-capture dialog after captures, and "stay hidden" option is chosen, main window was sometimes restoring if it was showing before capture was initiated.

  • [Change] The MyJunk folder is no longer created automatically.

v4.8.2 - April 16, 2014

  • [MinorFeature] Including .sctool file for IrfanView screenshot folder thumbnail browsing; will show up in your Tools menu if XnView is found installed.

  • [Improvement+BugFix] Previously, the post-capture pop-up dialog operated on the image PRIOR to any alpha-transparency fixups that were applied to an active window capture; this could result in black areas around images that you copied to clipboard from within the postcapture dialog.  Now such operations are performed prior to display in the post-capture dialog -- Thanks BillS!
  • [Change] If you try to trigger an active window capture from system tray menu you now get a message explaining that you can't trigger it that way.
  • [BugFix] Previous version was deleting old settings files into the recycle bin.

You can now comment on this announcement thread.  Comments will be split off onto a new thread with each new release.  I think this will make it easier for people to discuss releases but still keep the announcements clean.

I have now switched to ver 2.28.05, and the problems I reported earlier with the automatic copy to clipboard now seems to be solved - excellent!
There is however a new problem, the image now has a DPI of 200, no matter what settings I make in the preferences. I have also tried to change the DPI from the SpecialFX menu after the image have been captured, but I still end up with 200 DPI and this results in a very small image when I paste it into an email. Of course I can scale it up, but again it's one extra step...
This was not an issue in the last version.

v2.30.04 - 2/09/07
  • When copying and pasting to programs that support DPI information, Screenshot Captor now honors the DPI settings in options (solves bug where images were small when being copied and pasted into outlook, etc).
    How to use it?
    I grab an area and auto save to png file with dpi=300. When I insert picture from this file in MS word or OOo, it's still small (same as previous versions). I can find the dpi=300 information in the png file with irfanview. I can also delete this information with it. After that, inserting pic from the irfanview revised png file into doc will get a correct result.
    when use gif and other file formats, it's OK.
    when just copy & paste, (instead of insert image from file), it's OK.

simple:

you can set the default DPI for your new screenshots on the general settings tab. set it to 72 and all new screenshots will be big when pasted into outlook, word, etc.

you can also set the DPI for an individual image in the SpecialFX -> Color Depth+DPI menu.

    yes, i have tried 72dpi, but It's not exact the 100% size in word.
    On my thinkpad, when i set 95 dpi, it's nearly the 100% (also most clear) size.
but, i think for the best effect when insert image from png file to ms word or OOo, the png file should have no info of dpi.
    when use gif  and other file formats (there is no dpi info in file), it's OK.
    when just copy & paste, (instead of insert image from file), it's OK.

It works perfect for me now, I have set the DPI to 96 and the screenshots appear in perfect size when I paste them into mail messages (Outlook/Word). Thanks for the new version!

this is the effect.
Maybe 96dpi is the right number.
but it' was OK for me in previous versions yet.

Mouser - the links on the program and main downloads pages still say 2.30.02. Is the file they are linked to the updated 2.30.04 version?

YES it is the updated version (according to the about box) - the web page needs updating.

Mouser-

I thought you'd forgotten about me!  Sad  I guess I should have known better.  Thmbsup  To keep me posted on this issue since a 27-March email, you are a gentleman and a scholar.

I'll have time tomorrow (1-May) to give it a good look. But I watched the Flash demo on-line (which could be the last version, I guess) and it look real good. I'll let you know.

Many thanks, again!

Is the latest version 2.32.01 or 2.32.02?

Installing the download link to 2.32.01 shows the program is 2.32.02.

Not a big deal for this great program but I had to ask.

Bug?
I have always had a problem with the last file in the thumbnail display:  the filename is always hidden on the bottom past the area where the scroll stops.  When I click on it to rename the file (this happens when the filename takes up two lines, which is most of the time), I can't go down far enough.  Usually, I have to use the keyboard to navigate the filename, because the mouse won't reach.  Anyway, I've attached a picture.  Anyone else experience this?  Actually, I can't figure out how to take a screenshot of it...
Furthermore, it happens when you single-click on the filename to rename it.  The long filename turns into a cursor-box, but the width of the box is much narrower than the width of the filename before you click on it.  So, the two-line filename is now three or four lines, and the extra lines don't fit in the two line box.  I suggest either keeping the rename box width the same as the regular display width, or making the rename box high enough to accommodate the whole filename without scrolling.  Am I anal or what?

New version is uploaded.
Almost everything I did was to fix vista issues, so if you don't use MS Vista then you can skip this update.

FileForum at BetaNews now links to version 2.36.03. I can't see anything about this update. Are there any new features/fixes?

I've updated the version info in this thread.

Everyone should definitely upgrade to 3.36 since it includes a fix for active window selection which i broke recently in 3.34 or 3.35.

Vista users should furthermore make sure they have 3.36.03, since only with this release did i finally fix it so the license key is always saved properly and found on restart.  (if you dont use vista then 3.36.01 is fine).
