Screen Capture Format1.0.2

12 July 2011

Change default format for screen captures.

Overview

Screen Capture Format is a utility designed to get round one particular problem facing many Mac users: the default file format for a Screen Capture [Screen shot] on Mac OS X Snow Leopard is .png and the default location to save it, is on your desktop. But what if you want another format or you want to save the files somewhere else by default? Do you have to open an image editor to change the format then manually drag the files to another location? Do you have to edit system files using the Terminal?

Well - no more, because this is where our new Screen Capture Format utility comes in!

Once you install this little application, you can easily change your default format to any one of nine different formats and you can change your default save location with just a click of a button.

Once you've made your selections, you can quit Screen Capture Format and your Mac will use your choices as the defaults until you want to change them again.

We have also included a Reset option should you want to quickly return to the out-of-the-box settings.

I know that this app is only $1.60, but any Mac user can do this for free by typing the following into Terminal: defaults write com.apple.screencapture type image_format Where "image-format" can be all of the formats supported in this app PLUS PICT and SGI. So if I wanted to save my screen captures as PDFs, I would type the following: defaults write com.apple.screencapture type pdf You will need to restart your Mac for the change to take effect.

For such a simple program, the interface is a mess as well. That many options should be implemented with a popup menu per human interface guidelines, and the current screenshot location should be shown in the window. Otherwise - especially if I've used this to change it - how do I know where they're being saved? For being a wrapper of two terminal commands, it still manages to have issues. Might as well just use the terminal commands for free (and they're one-line and simple).
