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[*] would find such an option useful? ;) 

[*] hmm:


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: :) :)
