Change the default folder for screenshots.

Overview

Screenshot Path lets you change the folder where OS X saves screenshots. Screenshots are saved by default to the user's desktop. This is handy for the occasional screenshot but those looking to take dozens or hundreds of screenshots will want to use Screenshot Path to set up a custom destination to avoid cluttering up the desktop.

What's new in Screenshot Path

Version 1.4:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.8 or later

New:
  • Accepts folders by dragging them onto the main window and sets them as the default folder.
  • New minimum OS is macOS 10.8.
  • Screenshot Path is now ready for macOS 10.14 Mojave, including dark mode support.

Wow! Amazing solution for me. I do not want to keep lot of screenshots on my desktop. I know there are special commands in terminal and you can change the default location. With this grat app there is no need for complicated and dangerous bash commands. Sve your screenshots whereever you want without any problems. Well done guys!

My GoTo when I need to change screenshot formats Many sites want only JPEGS, while I prefer PDFs, to add pages. So unless you like to constantly fiddle with File > Export, or Terminal entries- this is the perfect app! Worked for 2 years, and runs flawlessly! Excellent support too. Rich Mac Lion - ElCap

Seems to be really nice app. There is no need to mess around with terminal commands. No drawbacks so far.

Do you really need this app? Unless you are novice you may manage all these things manually. Google for articles or check Apple Support Communities. It is not a big deal to change screenshot path via terminal.

I'm very comfortable with the terminal I don't have to google to change the screenshot destination. But I very often change the folder, so this tool makes it much easier and saves me some time. Well, it would be perfect if it accepts folders by dragging onto the desktop icon.

Hi Tekl, you can drag a folder and drop it into the window. But I put that on the list. Thanks for the suggestion.

Respectfully disagree, but it's probably a matter of how often we need to change the format. I do a lot of format changes. Some sites want only jpeg, but I like to save mine in pdf, so I can add / delete pages (YMMV) So I can take a screenshot of one, and convert it almost instantly.

Kinda like taking a bus vs buying a car. For a couple of trips, the car isn;t worth it. But several trips a day?

I love this app. Works perfectly and I love that it gives me the date and time of each shot. I'd ask only 2 things of it (one's easy, one maybe not so much). 1) I would like to set it to LEAVE the .jpg or .dng suffix in the filename, instead of hidden. I email these often, and can't count on Windows machines having a clue what I'm sending. And 2) I'd love the option to use an extra keyboard shortcut to have it come up with the save dialog - JUST in case I want to name the file when I create it. Sometimes, it's a problem to go through a stack to find what I want based on dates and times. Otherwise, this gets an A+. Thanks!

Works Fab in Yosemite. I used it to move the Screen Shot path to <iCloud Drive/Screen Shots>, will do that on my other machines as well. A unified Screen Shot folder, cool!

Weird, the path "iCloud Disk/Screen Shots" I mentioned in my review got deleted by this system.
It should have read:
"I used it to move the Screen Shot path to "iCloud Disk/Screen Shots"".

I'm a screenshot maniac. I use hundreds a month, all in a hurry. Digging them out of my overcrowded desktop was always a frustrating nightmare. Now, with Screenshot Path, its a snap. Support was super and lightning-fast when I had problems installing a second copy on another Mac on a Sunday afternoon. Major kudos. --JP

Installed it. Did not like it. Removed it with AppZapper. Now I cannot find screen captures. Not good.

Why not start it one last time to change the path back to your Desktop? What exactly could I do to improve the application?

That worked. However, I thought that I used to get a shutter sound that I no longer hear.
