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?

... why not just for "fixed size region"?

But now it's time to say good night – here in Germany :)

I need such a "ratio cropping" not after making the screenshot, but as a capturing option.

Why? Because I have to try out several browser sizes for capturing a selection with the ratio for Facebook articles (1,91 x 1), so that I have all the things of the web webpage arranged/positioned within this specific proportions...

I am wondering why this option is missing in this powerful tool which I am using since several years..

thank you!

Hmm, am I in the wrong forum?

Or didn't I find the option?

Or have I hold a special key by using »Grab Fixed size region«? I tried Shift, Ctrl, and ...


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?


... and in the meantime it works perfectly -- switching between png and jpg via "Windows-R" )

Ok, thanks! :)

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 ...

... but it's not very annoying ;)

... I do not like & use the red box, too ;)

But I tried this option. Result: I can't resize the red box proportionally by holding the ALT key!

Sometimes I make screenshots (in different sizes) for facebook article images -- ratio: 1,91 x 1. Now I make a shot greater than the "needed" area, opening the file in photoshop and do the rest...

Okay. But if Captor is opened and I run the EXE with the command line (via "Windows, Run") then the Captor window flickers -- that's normal? A little bit irritating... ;)

However, i could add some ways to send a signal to SC (via second instance commandline option) to do things like this (switch format or do a change of format).

Am I right that I can change the file format via commandline -- eg "ScreenshotCaptor.exe -format png" -- only by restarting Screenshot Captor and not "silently" in the background?

Thanks again!

so, this is possible only within ScreenShot Capture and not during capturing?

... it was a silly joke ;)

But "before monday"? -- I am still impressed :)

Wow, I'm fascinated! :) ... and will download the next release tomorrow ;) ;)

I am searching for a solution to change between these 2 file formats quickly (best: changing it via a shortcut e.g. via AutoHotkey...) and afterwards making a screenshot via the "usual way" = (in my case) by pressing the print screen key and then by choosing an option of the post capture menu (by the way: I added some more shortcuts for this menu with AutoHotKey, e.g. for uploading an image directly to and similar specific needs)...

... and not doing this "circuitous" by right clicking on the icon in the system tray - preferences - choosing the file format - clicking Accept

... because I change this setting very often a day and want to do this "very quickly" :)

PS: sorry, my German is much better than my English ;)


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!

... and PNGs "like" wide areas with less colors and less details :)

... ah, I have the solution for "my" feature ;)

-> integrating a "format switcher" in the context menu of Screencaptor in the System Tray, as stand alone menu oder e.g. in "capture options"

... or am I the only person who


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 :) :)

Thank you very much!

By the way: sometimes I want to attach a screenshot to an email (working with Tunderbird/windows). So I am using this little autohotkey script, active only when the post capture dialog box is open and activated just by simply pressing the key "t":

#IfWinActive, ahk_class TPostCapture2Form
clipboard =
Send, c    ;# copy file path
ClipWait, 1
sleep, 500   ;# wait "another" half a second
Run, thunderbird.exe -compose "attachment='%clipboard%'"

Or e.g. this little helper script -- shorter than the button "Send to...":

;# key P: open the file directly in Photoshop
clipboard =
Send, c
ClipWait, 200
Run, "%path_photoshop%" "%clipboard%"

And so on :)

The new 2 options are perfect! With this options I do not need one of my Autohotkey scripts any more to simulate the old behaviour ;)

Try using alt+key shortcut -- that should still work I think.
Yes, but then I need two fingers... this would be an interrupt of my (previous) workflow...
But now I am using an autohotkey script (not only to take control over screenshot captor) -- just by typing eg "s" the button "Save image..." will be "called".
Or by typing "f" the keys "!ch" are triggered and I get the file path into my clipboard. The fastest way. And -- yes -- I am using your tool quite often! :)

In short: it would be great to configure this dialog window. E.g. to disable the comment field
Yes i think this might be in order.
Now with my very little scripts ;) the comment field (which I don't need) will be omitted.

it had been implemented [Please correct me:  "had been" is wrong, isn't it?]
"it was implemented" would be be better, if you are referring to something that was implemented in the past.  if you are remarking on a brand new feature you might say instead "has been implemented".
Thank you very much for your English lection :)
