Yea, this is really awesome. I actually just did a package of smartison ScreenCopy today, as I didn't see any alternatives, but now you found and awesome one! You did pretty well on this, but there's a couple changes we can make in terms of the screenshot path and making it portable, and just some small PAF stuff.

I'd love to help you out, and will probably tomorrow.

Yep

You can get any IM you want, but I'd rather not post them publicly, so e-mail me using my e-mail on my user page, and tell me which protocol IM you want.

I'd recommend updating the main topic to use this download link instead of your skydrive account. skydrive can be blocked by work and school networks as being "personal storage" and stuff like that, but your site won't be flagged as such, and the download will still be available.

I'm not a mod, so I can't....somebody else may be able to. Why does it make a difference though if you're added the link in the main topic?

This was a great find, I love this app :D. Great job on getting the launcher written too, with Patrick's help getting it all fully PAF conformed, I'm sure this one will become official fairly quickly (at least I hope it does)

good find one thing

good find

one thing thought
what's up with the filenaming scheme, whether i choose timestamp or number it just doesn't put the timestamp (nor the number). I like to be able to control that...
Probably a bug of the app itself but annoying indeed. The only reason i'll keep using fscapture "portable"...

I noticed the naming was odd

I noticed the naming was odd too. By default it uses the name "screenshot.[number (starting with 1)].png", but when i attempt to change to use timestamp i get "screenshot.[random series of numbers that in no way resemble a timestamp].png" then if I change back to use number, it continues to add 1 to that random series of numbers.

a Problem and a Solution

ok i've encountered an issue when moving the lightscreen portable folder. I had the screenshots being saved in the main portable folder. when i moved to folder to a different location it created a folder and put the screenshot where lightscreen portable used to be. I recommend every time the program runs have it set the file output location to the current LightscreenPortable/Data directory. That is the only way i can think to do it without potentially causing issues. This can be accomplished by writing the correct new path as the registry value for "target" under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\K\Lightscreen\file].
