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.

A new beta (2.6.2b) came out around 10 days ago. I don't know if it's compatible with Mountain Lion (I'm still running Lion until I can buy an SSD), but it's worth a shot. Download it directly from the dev's site, as MacUpdate is now two beta releases behind.

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

Just a followup:

This app crashes more times in Lion than not.
To get a scree shot it usually takes 3-5 attempts.
I will be looking for another...too bad, I love this app.

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...?

Forgot to mention, this is v2.6.1b, which is newer than what MacUpdate has as its latest beta. I downloaded it directly from the developer's website. If you follow the comments on their website, they claimed this version fixed the freezing issue, but unfortunately, it didn't.

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.
