So what other helper tools do you use with Screenshot Captor?
« on: September 28, 2014, 04:43:02 AM »
in the recent update (v4.8.7 Beta), mouser added the Tools menu to SC's system tray menu. the ability to use external tools from within SC is one of the advantage that I very much like. so I was wondering what other tools out there that can complement or enhance your SC experience.

i'll start with my own SC tools menu, it's quite self-explanatory and it helps a lot with my workflow. though mouser has graciously implemented many of my requests to make things even smoother! :Thmbsup:

I'm thinking that what would really be useful is if i collected a list of the tools people like to use with SC, and made a special page for them -- with urls, tips, and how they are useful.
Sort of a page for people who use SC to help them find tools that will make their lives easier.

I like where this is going.  I don't use any tools other than Irfanview so it would be interesting to see what other people use and why.

My main adjunct to SC:

It replaced the tool I used before: http://screentogif.codeplex.com/

Fast image viewers
http://www.bandisoft.com/honeyview/en/  - to sort/copy pics quickly into two custom collection folders
http://www.vieas.com...software/unifie.html - dual pane viewer that I use to browse zip-files without unpacking them first
http://sourceforge.n...t/projects/jpegview/  - also good for quick images fixes, adjusting contrast + colors, rotating, cropping ...
The ini-file is the key to working this program, explanations are in the ini-file itself.

To edit ini-files, xml, html, css:

It combines the best features of PsPad and SublimeText, highly configurable

Renamer:

I launch my tools from a combination of

Portable is the keyword here. Nothing else qualifies.
