Automatically change the name of screenshot files
Authored by: amkim on Mar 24, '10 01:06:28PM

I have been so frustrated with Snow Leopard's new naming system for screen captures. Not only are the names extremely long, but they do not fall into chronological order if you have any number of them on your desktop and are viewing them in a list order, due to the date/time naming. This is extremely frustrating when trying to quickly mail out proof shots of a current project. I have to filter through my screen shots to find the correct one. Well, I have finally found a solution. Screenshot Plus 3.2 - I downloaded the widget here:

Now whenever I want to take a screenshot, I simply hit my dashboard short cut key and select which type of screenshot I would like (Full Screen, Full Window, Timed, or Custom Drag with Crosshairs) from the Screenshot Plus Widget and it automatically saves not only to where I want to save it to, but most importantly, with the custom name I select and in a chronological order! No more screen shot headaches :) Hope this helps ~ enjoy!
