Manage your screenshots with this renaming utility.

Overview

Sharpshooter lets you rename your screenshots with pinpoint accuracy. Sharpshooter is a small utility which aids the management of screenshots.

Sharpshooter lets you manipulate and process the screenshot while it is still fresh on your mind.

When you take a screenshot on OS X with Command-Shift-3 (or with another variation) Sharpshooter will present a window where you can review the picture and choose what to do with it. You can either rename it from its default name to something more descriptive, move the screenshot to the Trash, or cancel the operation keeping the screenshot as it is.

What's new in Sharpshooter

Version 2.4.3:
  • Notarized the app for Gatekeeper which is an indication that the app was uploaded to Apple and passed a security check before it was distributed.
  • Resolve symlinks when Sharpshooter starts monitoring for screenshots.
  • Fixed the missing Updates preference pane icon.
  • Added a hint in the Registration preference pane if an order number or previous version key is entered into the License Key field.

Name and save screengrabs without interrupting workflow! Excellent clutter-buster and time-saving addition to my must-have helper apps. Nice! (sorry I can't change 4.5 in review window. Should be all 5s, IMO!)

I've used this app, and it usually works well, but you can do the same thing using Automator and a little initial effort. See the following link.

I love this app. It's very simple and easy to use. You can use the menu icon to access it, like other capture apps, but this app is the best because when I do an "Apple" screen capture it takes over and pops up a window and gives me options. I can rename it, choose a different file format to save it in if I don't want the default (PNG), it let's me choose what folder I want to save it in if I don't want the default, or even discard it if I don't like the capture. This makes using it much more spontaneous than the others, what they call "screen shot monitoring." Compared to the others that charge, it is not expensive either. And I looked at the free ones today once more, especially the ones with five-star ratings, and I'm still staying with Sharpshooter. I've used it with every OS from Snow Leopard to Mavericks. Just installed it on Mavericks and it is faster than it was on Lion. In the past, when I've made suggestions, they've responded, too. They haven't had a review in quite awhile, and I thought it was time. I'm a fan and I am very grateful to the developers.

Great app but it keeps crashing all the time on my new MBP Retina with Mountain Lion 10.8.2. Also it doesn't start at cpu startup although I added it to startup items under System Pref. accounts. I sent an email to developer Kerlmax last week -still no reply. In summary; Nice and conveniant app -when it works, no active support. Test the trial first!

This product is simple to use, stable, and does what it says without any fuss or exorbitant upgrade costs. It is good value and I can highly recommend it after using it for years.

Why pay for this? I can only highly recommend SKITCH. It's free and just beautifully designed. Works just perfect for screenshots! And no, I am not the developer or in any way affiliated! Just a VERY happy user.

I tried to buy this program from MacUpdate this evening, but the purchasing screen did not allow me to do so. (No "purchase" button, and no field for entering my email, in spite of the label that suggested there should be a field.) Very odd problem.

I tried this software and I have to say I liked it very much. But (unless the developer has added something to it that wasn't in the version I tried) it seems far too expensive for the amount of use I would get from it.

I use a nifty lite app called Jing that will create a screen grab of whatever area of the screen or window you want, or create a video. Once the screen is grabbed you can annotate it with text and shapes. It's free and works great with Lion. The default save is to name it using the current date and time, but you're always able to rename it on save. Control-J is the key shortcut.

Is 2.0 a paid upgrade? I couldn't find any upgrade-pricing-scheme on the devs website...

I recently bought this and quite like the little app. Works as advertised and is a dependable little helper. However, there are two things I'd ask the dev to work on: 1. Make it a little quicker. Sometimes up to 5 seconds elapse until the "Save as" window pops up. 2. Make it work with Default Folder X. Other than that perfect little app that deserves a 5 star rating.

This is a potentially useful app, but it needs a few more features to make it easy to use: - The Sharpshooter window should remember its size. Currently, the window opens too small to see the screenshot clearly, which is necessary when trying to distinguish between multiple similar-looking screenshots. - A "zoom in" button to enlarge screenshots to 100% without enlarging the window would be useful, along with a hand tool to slide the image around in the window. A corresponding "zoom out" button would restore the image to a size that fits the window. - If a Sharpshooter window is already open, then subsequent screenshots should appear within the same window, perhaps accompanied by a display of thumbnails to move from one image to another. - It would be nice to be able to specify a number of favorite folders that would be available in the dropdown menu when choosing a location to save the screenshot.

I'm so glad this is Snow Leopard ready -- I'd hate to think of using Snow Leopard without it. Sharpshooter is one of my most used utilities, and one of the best $15 dollars I've ever spent on shareware. I've never, ever had a problem with it, and it's saved me hours of time and frustration since I began using it. Couldn't recommend more highly!

After using the program for a while and reevaluating some of the fee features available, along with its stability the product and support has changed my mind in regard to my previous comments about its fee. First of all there is not definitive reason to pay for this program. The fee based features can mostly be worked around with feature setting utilities such as Onyx and saving a screenshot to the desktop is the default Apple setting. This program can hold its own quite well against its competitors in its free format. That said I slowly realized that its fee based features could significantly save me time and annoyance when trying to import screenshot images to various programs. That fact, along with being able to dump the screenshots into my downloads folder eliminating desktop clutter convinced me to 'bite the bullet' and get a license. Since I try to avoid PayPal at all costs, and this was the only listed method of payment, I emailed the developer both to avoid the use of PayPal and to test out product support. I was most impressed with the response and attitude of the developer. He did his best to accommodate me, inquired with serious interest in alternatives I use with other sites, and promptly followed up with my license when payment arrangements were concluded. I simply could not ask for better support. The program has a simple, clean and well laid out interface, It is easy to use and has never created any problems for me. Sometimes the quality of the product is the best marketing tool for a product. This is the case for Sharpshooter. One of my personal values is to take ownership for my actions. In this case my previous comments were premature and I have no problem in stating they were wrong about this product. Given the convenience of its fee based features, and the support offered for the product it is worth the shareware fee. As such I now highly recommend the product, both in its freeware and shareware configurations.

This is a great product as free or donationware. but not worth $15 ($12 for the next 3 days) for the average users,Thanks but no thanks for the few screenshots I do every month, I would rather spend the $15 on family entertainment than on this program.

This just stopped working -- i don't know why. When I first had this it worked great -- a real knockout program. Now, it doesn't do anything. It runs -- it's there in the menu -- but when I do a screenshot Sharpshooter doesn't do anything. I would love this program if it worked as it used to.... (Running OS 10.5.3)

This little app is fantastic! If it would have the possibility to specify the location where the screenshots are saved, it would be perfect.

Certainly handy for those of us who use Apple's shortcut keys for screenshots. I don't use these as much since finding InstantShot, but this is a very nice app, keep up the good work!

It's not too often that I replace my own code with another program (I was previously using a Folder Action to rename new screenshots), but Sharpshooter's preview window is just too much fun. 5/5 for everything but features, which I give a 3/5. I could really use format converting options and a Save To button for keeping the Desktop clean.

Nice. Very useful. Unobtrusive. Even more without the menu bar icon. It would be nice to be able to define a default-name _in the popup window_ to be taken as basename for all following pics.
