If you spend a lot of time taking screenshots (as I do), you will like Screenshot Plus, an image capture widget with a very neat trick up its sleeve.
Like other screenshot widgets (Capture for example) it can take fullscreen grabs, selections or particular windows. Unlike Capture, it can also do timed screenshots and grab individual widgets. These options are presented nicely on the front of the widget:
On the rear, the widget offers something truly time-saving. By default it displays the screenshot as a preview after capture, but you can set it (as above) to import the screenshot directly into your image editor of choice.
In my case that’s Photoshop. The time (and finger-wear) I will save by not clicking and dragging from Desktop to app is immense. It will even launch the editor for you if it’s not already open.
Of course, I can still make a cup of coffee while Photoshop loads, but that’s not the widget’s fault.
A drop-down menu allows you to specify your destination of choice—another image editor or iPhoto or whatever.
Images can be captured as png, tiff, jpg, jp2, pdf, gif, bmp, or pict files.
A new version released a few days ago adds 10.4.7 compatibility and better French language support.
