Downloads (all except installer inside a zipped folder)
PotShot requires .NET Framework 4.0. It should work on Vista and later without any extra installation. For Windows XP, you need to download this.
Please take note of the known issues below.
- Custom manual directory entry
- Minimize to tray
- Tray icon has menu options for “Maximize” and “Stop!”
- Program optionally hides on “Start!” to avoid capturing the window
- More time options–now you can choose from milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours, or days
- Enable/disable “Start!” and “Stop!” buttons as visual cues that a capture is or isn’t in progress
- Better button labels and layout
- Help text for the “Custom” button
- Memory leak. It should now use a stable 15 to 20 MB
- Image counter not resetting to zero
- “Unable to find suitable framework” error on Windows XP–both the installer and standalone executable should work now
- E-mail photos
- Automatically stop after a certain time period
- The photo count is still messing up and will save multiple copies of the same photo if you start and stop capturing more than once without restarting the app.
- Images saved without the option to use the date and time in the filename will be overwritten if the next capture also does not include the date and time.
- While I have cut down on RAM usage, the CPU usage will jump up if you set the capture interval to more than once per second.
- Some of the new time settings (hours and up) may be off.
- It doesn’t capture the mouse cursor.
- The “Maximize” option in the tray icon doesn’t consistently bring the program to the foreground. It appears in the taskbar as an icon, though.
- The tray icon requires a double-click instead of a single-click.
- The tray icon option to stop capture works, but is not reflected in the buttons. Click “Stop” again in the app once you bring the window up.
