Where you state your requirements:
...This way easily i can keep record of important things which appeared on my screenI have exactly the same requirements
and I meet those requirements easily, as follows:
...This is why I keep banging on about CHS (ClipboardHelp & Spell) as being an ideal image capture management tool, if users (and its author) only but realised it. The user can forget about worrying about image filenames or what directory the ruddy image is stored in or where it is.
It really does seem rather like a no-brainer, to me: If CHS is running, then every screenshot image that goes to Clipboard also is saved to the CHS image database folder [NB: together with any post-capture SC(ScreenshotCaptor) artefacts added at time of capture, if SC was being used to make the screenshot], from where the user can, at their leisure, view that image saved - just scroll through the images flagged in the CHS Grid display and view the image (with zooming) in the CHS Memo display. The user can at that point also trigger a separate image viewer (e.g., Irfanview) from the view button in the CHS Memo display, which will have previously been associated with images in the CHS settings. ...
metadata about the image - e.g., what it is about - can be recorded in the Clip Text
tab of CHS' Memo
As for the usual metadata - e.g., , application screen where image was captured from, directory saved to, file naming and time/date stamps - are all automated metadata in the Clip Text
tab of CHS' Memo
pane and the Date Modified/Created columns
of the CHS Grid pane
For years now, this is exactly the way I have been easily keeping a record of every important thing which appears on my
laptop screen. It's literally as easy as falling off a log, and it's mostly automated as far as possible.
If you prefer to use MS Paint or other image editing tool in place of SC, then just make that other tool the default image editing proggy in the CHS settings. However, from experience, I'd recommend you stick to SC as it's likely to be far more useful than MS Paint ever could be for most users.
Also, don't be afraid to take advantage of using an OCR tool to scan your images for any embedded text data. I do that all the time, using mostly MS OneNote
and ABBY ScreenshotReader
) So, for example, taking the photo of (say) a printed label on a product in a shop instantly becomes data.
