Automatic Screenshotter is a lightweight tool that will automatically take screenshots of your desktop at predetermined intervals and then save them.
The intention is to be a primitive "backup" tool, which will continuously snap screenshots and save them so that in a case of an app or system crash you can easily go back and see what was on your screen right before the failure.
Automatic Screenshotter Features:
It's made to run in the background, taking screenshots of either the currently active foreground window, or the entire desktop
You can configure how often the screenshots are taken, and how they are named. The naming can include putting them into subdirectories and can be based on the data, time, and application name
It will automatically prune older screenshots based on limits you set regarding screenshot age, # screenshots to keep, and total file space you want to use
It will also try to be smart about avoiding saving multiple screenshots when the window (desktop) contents don't change, with some configurable tolerances, to minimize disk space used
It can also be told about certain applications to never capture, or alternatively a small list of applications that it should only ever capture
It can be configured to ignore capture when your PC has been idle for a certain amount of time, or when screensaver is running, or when full-screen games are running
You can also manually trigger a capture with a hotkey
You can also toggle capturing on-and-off easily from system tray menu
Screenshots are saved as standard PNG files by default
