What is InstantShot! for Mac

InstantShot! is screen capturing, the smart way.

Do you often use screenshot software and feel that something is missing? Don't you feel like they're not so efficient and that they are way too complicated? Tired of long menus? If you answered "yes" to one or more questions, InstantShot! is the software for you!

InstantShot!: the answer to your screencapturing troubles in just a few Kbytes.

What are the features of InstantShot! ?
InstantShot! offers classical screenshot functionality for capturing the whole screen, a portion of it or a window and also the option to make timed screenshots or to make delayed captures over time. It offers a wide range of possibilities and options to better fit everyone's needs.

How does InstantShot! works?
InstantShot! creates an icon in the menu bar. Clicking on the icon, a menu will appear. Select the capture type from the menu (whole screen, a portion of screen, timed screenshot or multiple captures) or, if you want to change the save format, select the desired one from the submenus and then... capture!

Which image formats are supported?
InstantShot! can save images in Tiff, Jpg and Png format and to the clipoard so you can import the image directly in other applications.

Will InstantShot! occupy space on my desktop?
Absolutely not! InstantShot! doesn't appear in your dock or on your desktop!

In what languages is InstantShot! available?
The software is currently available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Traditional Chinese. Contact us through our site if you'd like to contribute a localization!

Love it! Went looking for a replacement for the overly-complex Skitch, which can't seem to even do what I originally downloaded it for, and landed on this app. Works beautifully for generating multiple screen caps using the same screen position/sizing. The UI could be slightly more refined, but I'll only slight it a tad for that.

Hey Digital Waters: The screenshot above gets smaller when clicked, not larger.

Latest version from the Developer's website seems to be 2.6.2b, which seems to work just fine (for me) under ML 10.8.2.

Have been using InstantShot for a long time but suddenly it fails in os 10.8.2 and I've had to look for an alternative. The beta simply freezes. I'm sorry to lose such a 'friend' but my urgent need for a simple screen capture program dictates that I must move on.

So far, it looks like there is no update for OSX10.8 Mountain Lion. I hope that the developers bring out an update as it is an excellent app. which is easy to use. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars, otherwise it is a 5 star app.

I've been using instantshot for years. The older version was showing problems in Lion. I downloaded the newest beta and problem solved!

Problems under Lion: Clicking on the System tab of the Preferences causes the window to freeze, but you can still quit out of the app via the Menubar icon. App will often disappear from my Login Items list during reboot, and not launch. It's the only Login Item that does this. I'm guessing it's related to the first bug...?

I've been using Instant Shot for a number of years now and its been a GREAT piece of software. Under Lion (10.7.2) it crashes. Its a thing that just started happening a couple weeks ago, so it was running (I was using it a few times a day), on this OS. Dunno...any thoughts?

Thanks to Digital Waters for updating this wonderful software - no do-dads but amply tweakable and excellent, straight-line workflow capacity. Unfortunately, I had to abandon it when Lion arrived well before an updated version of InstantShot! was ready, and a close approximation was available for $2.99 at the Apple Store. Even so, I may re-install InstantShot! Sure and begorrah, when you need a screenshot, it brings in the cavalry without the thunder and dust.

Very happy to see that there's a new release, since this is a very valueable piece of software to me for making manuals. This new version works like a charm as long as you don't click 'system' in the Preferences, the program will then freeze. Hope this is fixed in the next release and I'm sure it will.
