Screenshot Captor / Re: Jpg captures B/W

Windows 10. I normally use XnView but it doesn't matter what external browser. The captured images come up in monochrome. The strange thing is that the images come up in colour in the Screen Capture's internal editor.

All my captures in jpg are suddenly in monochrome when opened in external editors. Png, bmp and gifs are in colour. The internal Screen capture editor shows the images in colour.

What am I missing.

I do a lot of screen capturing, for different kinds of use. Some for use on mobile 16:9 screens, some for just inserting into web text, some as profile photos in 1:1 or 2:3 and several other use. I guess after having used one system for years I notice differences that effect work flow routines.

I think your good software would get an improvement by adding a menu option ”Preset crop ratio”, to the Edit menu, with no relation to image size, centering, largest or anything like that. Just the length/width ratio.

Suggestion to default selection ratios
Special ratios perhaps via Settings menu

A possibility to swap the crop relation, like 4:3 to 3:4 or 3:2 to 2:3, by a short cut, like Tab. You know switching from Landscape to Portrait.

After Capture editing will always be there and I guess we will always find something that could minimize work friction.

I have enclosed a sort of work flow example in the attached file. Hope it makes sense!

Thanks Mouser.
I guess it all balls down to what you find as a convenient work flow. A click on a menu option for a quick selection of the aspect ratio, n.b. irrespective of images sizes, is a good and efficient feature when using your kind of tool as much as I do.

There will always be a need to change the image size, after cropping, and the paths to do that must be easy and efficient, a hot key command is good. Very often there's also a need to change the image background size and the clicks to do that should be straight forward and easy.

Your editor have several nice and useful feature and I would very much like to use on that instead of using an external editor like XnView, even if it's very good.

I have recently swapped ZScreen for Screenshot Captor. I've used an old ZScreen version for years with XnView as editor, which I will continue with until I get familiar with the SC inbuilt editor. After cropping I often needs to crop the image to get a certain ratio. It can be 16:9, 1:1, 3:2 or 4:3. That's a piece of cake in XnView but not so in the SC editor. I suggest that you add a selection ratio feature. A better  selection of preset sizes would also improve the usage.
