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 Lion and Snow Leopard is .png and the default location to save it, is on your desktop. But what if you want another file 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 your system files using the Terminal?
We wanted to make this easier, so 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. You don't need to remember Unix Terminal commands or restart your Mac or anything!
Once you've made your selections, you can quit Screen Capture Format, safe in the knowledge that your Mac will use your choices as the defaults until you want to run Screen Capture Format and change them again.
We've also included a Reset option in the menu bar, should you want to return to the "out-of-the-box" settings.
