Automatic Screenshotter Description
In addition to helping you create a user manual or a how-to guide, screenshots can also act as a visual aid for explaining certain functions, processes or issues you are dealing with.
Automatic Screenshotter is a lightweight application that enables you to take snapshots of your entire desktop or only a few active windows for the purpose of monitoring system and programs' behaviors.
Simple functionality and permanent updates
After a fast and straightforward setup, you can access the application from the System Tray. While it is set to be minimized to tray by default, you can also hide it from the taskbar so it does not distract you or, on the contrary, keep it on top of other windows, depending on your needs.
Although it is designed to work in the background, the tool comes with a report window where you can check out various details about its activity, such as space used, number of files, their location on the local drives and the actions performed during the last session.
Enables you to take snapshots at specific interval
The high spot of the application comes from the fact that it allows you to capture the actual windows you want. You can specify the active windows you are interested in grabbing from the Options window.
In addition, you can select to have automatic screenshots at specific intervals, meaning every 5 or 10 seconds, 1, 5 or 10 minutes and 1 hour. The app also enables you to take snapshots at any desired time manually, a feature that can surely come in handy when you want to capture certain error notifications so you can get help from friends or on the forums, for instance.
The screenshots can be saved as PNG or JPG or a mix of both image formats, a preference that you can specify from the Options window.
A simple tool designed to work in the background
All in all, the app allows you to capture active windows or the entire desktop using your own parameters. Therefore, Automatic Screenshotter could lend you a hand when you are monitoring particular application or system behaviors.
