Quick answer (on my phone currently):
From my perspective the transparency capture used to work and at some point it stopped functioning properly (pretty sure my fault, changing settings etc); but the window is in the middle of the screen and there was plenty of space in all directions yet the window is moved when borders (dis-)appear.
I will double-check all settings tomorrow and test my settings on a clean SC install in parallel.
Thank you guys for the quick replies!

@ayryq, I'm aware of this but it's not a bug - it's my messed up capturing settings where the black border appears around the window to capture transparency (I'm too lazy to fix/reset the settings). The window's position changes when the black border is displayed thus the "shadow" of the text.

The title says it all. The bug is not persistent, but occured ~80% of the time to me.

1) Take a screenshot
2) Select an area
3) Try to pixelate inside the area
4) Look for text "shining" through the pixelated area

3rd: How it looks like in Screenshot Captor

PS: Another small bug: Using screenshot name template "%customdate%__%filename%" works on other programs (%filename% on Explorer.exe = "explorer") but doesn't work for me on Screenshot Captor itself (equals nothing, like the 3rd attachment)

Try to scroll-capture this page:

The capturing itself works well (besides I couldn't get a proper auto-scroll with the newest Firefox Beta). But: when it comes to overlapping settings, changing any value results in a "There's not enough memory for this action" message. I've 16GB of RAM and set Memory Usage to 5000MB in ScreenshotCaptor (a 32-bit program though ;))

@mouser: Hi, thanks and thank you for a good tl;dr :)
Do you mean to use that as a "3rd party uploading tool" (to move to dropbox+copy URL)? It's a really cool idea, I didn't think about that. With some command line tweaks it could work ;)
And yes, I thought about "bruteforcing" the whole screenshot folder for valid screenshots, but I didn't really care about this (at least yesterday).

@cmpm, what do you mean by the first sentence? Couldn't understand you :/
About dropboxlinker... might be useful, especially when you want to share multiple files/URLs, but most of the time I put single files or .zip archives manually into dropbox so it isn't hard to me to make 2 clicks to get a link. Anyway, different purposes, different programms. (I also doubt one can add it as a tool)

Screenshot Captor / [Outdated] SSC + Dropbox + AutoIT = awesomeness

UPD 2018: Dropbox has permanently and indefinitely disabled Public folders for all users. This has no use anymore.

I didn't know exactly where to post this; move the thread if I was wrong.

The first time I saw ScreenshotCaptor, I wondered how powerful this tool is and why almost nobody uses it. While the second question remains unanswered, we will make use of SC's customization.
This is not a real tutorial (How-to), but rather a way how I did that and some help for you to get more or less the same result.

Note: As of 4th October 2012 registered Dropbox users no longer receive a 'public' folder automatically (read and https://www.dropbox....enable_public_folder)

As you know SC has 3 ways to upload your screenshot:
  • built-in uploader (imageshack /
  • ShareX
  • Custom Uploader Tool

But I didn't like any of these:
1) I don't want to have my screens to be spread over the Internet by uploading them to all kinds of sites
2) I didn't want to install any additional software
3) Same as 2

...but I had Dropbox. One of many (nowadays) cloud services. Simple and fast. Since I mainly make screenshots to share them (with friends or whoever) I decided to save all screenshots into the dropbox folder.
It was pretty good although not really "user-friendly", because:
1) I had to right-click on SC (which is permanently hidden on my toolbar)
2) then "Explore at screenshot directory",
3) scroll down to the latest screenshot
4) right-click to copy Public link (see note)
5) paste it.

A long, annoying way just to get a link, isn't it? I did that work for every screenshot I wanted to share since February this year until I found out that SC lets you to run a program after capturing.

So I thought why not automatically put a ready link to the clipboard?
It was really simple to do in AutoItw (11 lines, including customization | Source code avaible in the attachment).

How it works:
  • You make a screenshot that will be saved in your dropbox folder
  • SC runs your script (.exe)
  • The script puts a ready-to-paste URL into your clipboard
  • ???

How to make it work with Dropbox:
  • Make sure you have a Public folder
  • Set the screenshot folder to be inside your public folder
  • Go to Basic Capturing/Post-capture Options
  • Enable "Commandlines to run" and
  • Put path to the .exe [space] %file% [space] [your URL / prefix]   (see screenshot in the attachments for an example)
D:\GameZone2\Au3\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenCaptor_1.2_x64.exe %file%
Note: You need to replace the '999999' with YOUR ID and everything afterwards is the path to your screenshot folder.

Enjoy your instant screenshots!
