Automatic Screenshotter - auto delete options?
« on: June 18, 2018, 04:40 AM »
Hi,
Fantastic software but…
Despite my request to keep screen captures forever, for later archiving, images disappear after 7 days.
Any suggestion.
Or has the topic be addressed in the NANY 2016 forum

See the tab for "Capture Options" and look under "Screenshot Preservation" -- set those values higher.  I will add an option to disable that entire section soon.

I'll do that possibly to−morrow (it's almost midnight) and keep you posted
Many thanks.
Is there a way to view all screen captures without going from one day folder to the next one?

@JEANFR: I had that requirement as well. Solved it with xplorer² which lets you see the files in a folder and in all its subfolders as a virtual single flat file - i.e., as though they were in a single logical folder. Very useful for mass file operations.
Not a good idea to actually keep the files in a single logical folder though. Keeping the files in date-related folders helps for ease of reference and cataloguing and eliminates the problem of too many files (e.g., thousands) in a single folder - which latter tends to slow Explorer down when browsing a folder and then file management becomes very laggy.

For image-viewing and cataloguing/tagging, then consider Picasa, which doesn't seem to mind large numbers of files in a folder. Refer Google Picasa "Sunset" version - Mini-Review and anchor-point.

That is one of the goals of the Mouser's Media Browser image browser that is built into Automatic Screenshotter.. But it still could use some usability improvements.

The new beta version 1.09.01 should improve these issues.
