Screenshot Captor / version 4.39.0 ?
« on: November 01, 2020, 05:27 PM »
I have installed version 4.39.0 – but, hmm, I can't found this version as a download on this site. Therefore, where is this version?


I am switching between capturing as PNG and JPG very often – solved:

Is there such an option/parameter/trick available for switching "on demand" between screenshots with and without "special effects"?
Usually I have a shadow and white border around my captures (via Special Effect Options). But sometimes I want to have my shots without these effects.

And, yes, one workaround would be two setting files (ScreenshotCaptor.ini). But a command line or similar would be better – or simply the best (solution) ;)

Thanks (for your work & help)!


after editing a screenshot (e.g. highlighting an area) I need the bitmap in the clipboard (for copy&paste purposes).
I'm not a mouse fan ;)
Therefore: can I define a shortcut for doing this?


Screenshot Captor / Shadow color not working

the newest version 4.31.2 doesn't apply the shadow color?!

Best, mtemp


Screenshot Captor / selecting a region slow/delayed
« on: February 25, 2018, 07:15 AM »

tried to create this short screen video to demonstrate the "slowness"/delays by selection a region – my cursor is always much faster than the dashed rectangle...

Win10, fast PC ... (latest version of Screenshot Captor)

Esp. selecting larger areas is very slow and therefore difficult to select exactly the region I want.

Only on my machine?


Screenshot Captor / Capturing area with ratio?
« on: November 03, 2015, 02:50 PM »

e.g. for screenshots using in Facebook as article image I need the option to capture an area with a ratio of 1,91 x 1

... like in Photoshop:

But, ah, this is not possible yet, isn't it?


Screenshot Captor / you have a newer version...
« on: May 14, 2015, 04:30 PM »

s. attached screenshot :)

But now I will install the latest version 4.10.0 ...


referring to my thread: "Feature request: quickly switch between PNG und JPG"

Is there a command line option to change the file format?

In the help file I discovered "only" these options for a running instance of TC:

Usefile commandline options to use on an already-running copy of ScreenshotCaptor (the second instance won't run but it will pass the command to the first instance):
 -ccpath  (copy current/last screenshot filepath to clipboard)
 -ccbitmap (copy current/last screenshot image bitmap to clipboard)
 -ccfile (copy current/last screenshot file to clipboard)

Thanks a lot!


sometimes I need the path of a taken screenshot as PNG in my clipboard, sometimes as JPG (dependent on the captured area: photos vs. text) -- without saving it first as PNG or as JPG and then copying its path into the clipboard (e.g. for uploading it to facebook & co.).

When I need several screenshots as PNGs, I am changing the file format in the preferences -- and vice versa. But this step is a little bit circuitous (at least for me and my special needs ;))

So, a further option or similar in the post-capture window would be very useful to quickly switch between these two formats.

What's your opinion? ;)

Thanks a lot!

PS: maybe another "great idea" as my wish for such a post-capture window: https://www.donation...57.msg34117#msg34117 :) :)

Screenshot Captor / Confiuring the post-capture window?
« on: April 26, 2013, 08:31 AM »

long, long ago I wished to have such a post-capture dialog window as a quick option menu -- and, wow, it had been implemented [Please correct me:  "had been" is wrong, isn't it?]
-> https://www.donation...dex.php?topic=4857.0

Just simply by typing eg "h" I got the screenshot into the clipboard and the dialog window was closed.
Now the comment field is active and I can't select one of the buttons with just "one key" -- and so on...

In short: it would be great to configure this dialog window. E.g. to disable the comment field or to define which buttons should be directly accessible and not via sub menus and similar.

best regards, mtemp


the program settings menu needs a search form as it is implemented eg in UltraEdit!

... because I can't find this setting:

[Feature] New option to tell SC not to save active window internal meta data to file comment meta data; useful if you are using images with an application that extracts and uses file comment meta data.

Where can I activate this feature (not to save any meta data)?

thanks a lot!

Screenshot Captor / Making screenshots with ratio?!
« on: September 15, 2012, 02:36 PM »

I can't see the option to define a ratio for making screenshots. E.g. 3:2 or 4:3.
Sometimes I make screenshots (selected region) of photos, but want them to be in 3:2 ratio.

Is there an option I can't find?

Thanks, mtemp

Screenshot Captor / Request: make freehand annotations
« on: March 28, 2008, 05:17 AM »
first of all: I am using Screenshot all the day ;)

... and I would using it night & day when there would be the possibility to draw / make annotations freehand (like brushes in Photoshop). I have a graphic tablet and this would be a great help and a nice feature.


Screenshot Captor / [2.18.04] Suggestions
« on: August 17, 2006, 06:58 AM »
I've tried several screenshot programs:

In most cases I only want to capture rectangled areas of different sizes to the clipboard (for email, inserting into word, photoshop, ...). PrintScreen is a small program und works fine. But you can't add simple arrows, text or rectangles -> this would be a nice feature for e.g. tutorials. And you can't add a thin border. Later I've found Winsnap. There you can add a border and even a nice looking shadow. But the handling is not so comfortable.
So I tried Faststone FSCapture which has such features. But the handling especially of the graphic functions (adding text, ...) is circuitous, too.

And now I'm trying Screenshot Captor... There are many, many features -- maybe too much ;)

# Problem: I've installed it with administrator rights (you need administrator rights, or?). But with restricted rights under XP you can't save the preferences, or?

# Strg+Q for deleting files is a uncommonly shortcut in XP, or? Usually you can close a program. But there is no shortcut for closing Captor (only Alt-F4?). For me it would be nice to close the program just by pressing "Esc" -- the easiest and fastest way.

# Sometimes I need the program window (to add text, ...) and sometimes I need only the captured region in  the clipboard just without any changes. So ist would be nice e.g. to assign a shortcut key to open (or not to open) Screenshot Captor after making a screenshot. Or: after making the screenshot there could appear a small "kontext menu" or something like with several options: open the program, copy captured region only to the clipboard and/or to file, and so on.
