Now that I've taken a look around in ScreenShot Captor and been thoroughly impressed with what a great piece of work it is, I have a few immediate thoughts about a couple of small changes that would be useful to me.1. Add standard Windows file open dialog to tray icon right click context menu.Why:
I often want to work with files already stored locally rather than capture new ones. With this feature I could easily open an existing file. The reason I would like the standard windows file open dialog is because I use another program that adds extensions to that dialog that allow me to have a favorites list to immediately navigate to favorite folders and files. It also has several other features. It works with the standard Windows Open and Save As dialogs.Note:
Maybe a good place on the menu is under "Grab screenshot from Webcam" and before "Acquire image from scanner" ? Maybe label something like "Open local file" or "Open local image" ?2. In the main window File command menu add an "Open" command (standard file open dialog).
Same reason that I would like to have this dialog on the tray icon. If I am already in the window I would want to use that command.Note:
I'm not fond of using the giant folder icons to navigate. It's clumsy and uses a lot of screen real estate. Also it doesn't give you a lot of context to see where you are. It's easy to get lost. I prefer the standard Windows file open and Save As dialogs. The main window already has the Save As... and it's great!
So there you have it. I have lots more ideas, but I think this is the wish list that are my most needed things at this time.
If any of this capability is already available, and I just didn't see it, I apologize.
I am still thinking the uploading features through. Generally, I like your idea about using a registered account so that you can manage your photos through the host rather than trying to build that same redundant capability into the program. That makes a lot of sense. Why spend all that time recreating capability that is already there. However, I need to try that system for a while to see how it works out. So I'll report back when I do. I also like the idea of using an anonymous account because it's just less hassle. So I hate giving that up. Clearly SOME things will need to be done -- or would be nice to have done -- through ScreenShot Captor to support even the registered system such as some things that are already being done like copying the URL to the clipboard when uploaded. I'll check back in after I've thought it through. You probably have much better ideas about it then I do anyway!
Thanks for considering these things. I hope they are helpful. Please let me know if there is any way I can assist. I'd be more than happy to beta test or anything else. This program is definitely worth it! Thanks again!
