Screenshot Grab makes taking screenshots of individual apps, windows and the entire desktop quick and easy.
When Screenshot Grab is launched it grabs images of all the apps and their windows currently on the desktop, including a snapshot of the entire desktop.
The screenshots appear listed with their icons in the order in which they appeared onscreen. Even if an app is obscured by another window Screenshot Grab is able to take an un-obscured screenshot.
It is possible to perform a re-grab by clicking the Grab Now button or by pressing the global hotkey combination: alt+cmd+g. You can use this hotkey even when when Screenshot Grab is not the active application.
It is possible to perform a timed grab (global hotkey combination shift+alt+cmd+g), which will grab all the apps after a configurable countdown period. The countdown is spoken (optionally) to you and displayed in the application's dock icon so you know exactly how much time you have left before the screenshots are taken.
An individual snapshot can be saved to a file as either a png, jpg, bmp or tif image by clicking the Save As… button (cmd+s). The file extension specified will determine the image type. Alternatively, all the snapshots can be saved to a folder (shift+cmd+s). It's also possible to copy the currently selected screenshot to the clipboard (cmd+c) so you can quickly paste it into another application. Or if you prefer you can drag and drop the screenshot to Finder or your favourite graphics app.
The last item in the list of screenshots is always the entire desktop. For those with dual displays, the arrangement of the displays in System Preferences will determine the layout of the Entire desktop image.
Screenshot Grab's preferences include:
* Default image type (for Save All To… and Copy functionality): png, jpg, bmp or tif
* JPG quality %
* Countdown duration for timed grab: 5, 10, 30 or 60 seconds
* Optionally speak countdown for timed grabs
* Optionally display mouse cursor for Entire Desktop item
* Optionally hide window framing (gets rid of shadows and borders around windows)
