I like this.

cp /usr/local/PupSnap/pupsnap2.rc /usr/local/PupSnap/pupsnap.rc

will easily solve the conf problem.

I found typing in file name every time troublesome so i did this
Code:
if [ "$FILENAME"= "" ]
then
FILENAME=picture
fi

num=1
while [ -f "$FOLDERNAME""$FILENAME"."$FILETYPE" ]
do
FILENAME="$(echo picture"$num")"
let num=num+1
done

Good idea, but I don't know where to add the code. Adding it to the bottom of /usr/local/PupSnap/pupsnap.rc did nothing.

Thanks,
Jim

Hi r1tz,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll see what I can do. Smile

Some recommendations and bugs:

  • If one forgets to enter file name and has the thumbnail check box ticked. It does not remember that the thumbnail check box is ticked.

  • Please use a "&" at the end of the error sound command. I have one that is a few secs long.

  • What about the default location being "/tmp"?

  • Change window title to "PupShots" from "PS".

  • "Help" tab be renamed to "About/Help/Config".

  • Default image format of PNG instead of JPG.

  • Option to use Date & Time for file name. Here is a date command you can use:
    Code:
    date +%F_%R:%S

The next release of PupSnap should address 1, 2, 6 and 7 above. However, 3, 4 and 5 will not change for now. Smile

I'll upload the new version later today.

Thanks for your suggestions.

You add it in func somewhere at the top just before the xdialog line.
Quote:
ERROR="aplay /usr/share/audio/error.wav"
[ "$FILENAME" = "" ] && $ERROR && Xdialog --title Alert --no-cancel --msgbox "Please enter a file name!" 0 0 && $WORKDIR/PupSnap && exit 0


i added this behind so i can just link people to the image in a jippy. xclip default setting it to "copy" to middle click.
echo "http://q.r1tz.operaunite.com/file_sharing/content/images/"${FILENAME}"."${FILETYPE}""|xclip

Initially, i was thinking of adding a script to upload to imagebin.

Version 1.5 See main post.
-Added option to apply current date and time to the image file name. (thanks abushcrafter)
-When a new name is not selected for the File Name entry box, the capture proceeds with automatic sequential naming of images. (thanks r1tz)
-The most recent capture is now the default entry for the File Name.

I have thought of another recommendation. Add Image Magick "display" to the image viewer list.

Hi abushcrafter,

If an image viewer or editor is not currently supported by PupSnap, you can manually add the name of the executable to the appropriate combobox (with path and switches if needed). This new viewer or editor selection will remain your default choice until you decide to change it.

Thanks for the recommendation. Smile

Thanks. Nice feature.

Hi radky,

A number of times I've had problems with the forum reporting that I was trying to upload an empty file and refused to post. This morning I tried to upload these two images made with PupSnap that are on the image made with mt-paint snapshot. Weird!

Hi Jim,

In PupSnap, the File-Quality setting of 100 (least compression) may seem ideal for those who want to capture an image at maximum quality. However, when posting an image to the Murga forum, a full screen that is captured with no significant image compression may exceed the forum limits for image size.

On my system, a basic 1920x1080 full-screen image captured in PNG format with the File-Quality setting of 100 (6086K) will not upload to the forum. However, the same PNG image captured at the File-Quality setting of 50 (48K), will upload quickly, and the image looks very good when viewed as a link to the primary forum post. File compression in the PNG format is ‘lossless’ and image quality is preserved.

When capturing PNG images with PupSnap (i.e. with Scrot and the imlib2 library), the file size (in kilobytes) does not reduce significantly at File-Quality settings of 95 or 90, but drops dramatically at 85 (and below). You may have noticed that mtPaint and GIMP initially default to the maximum compression value of '9' when images are saved in the PNG format. At this numerical setting, the size of the mtPaint file (or GIMP file) is identical to the same image captured in PupSnap with the File-Quality setting of 50. The following quote is from the GIMP help file: “Since compression in the PNG format is not lossy, the only reason to use a compression level less than 9, is if it takes too long to compress a file on a slow computer." Consequently, when capturing PNG images in PupSnap, I would recommend the File-Quality setting of 50, which correlates with the maximum compression level of 9 in both mtpaint and GIMP. This will produce an image of high quality and convenient size (in kilobytes).

On the other hand, if the goal is to display an image of large dimension on the primary forum page (without linking), you can use a bitmap editor to crop the image, or downsize by pixel interpolation. A maximum image size of 600 pixels should satisfy the forum criteria for direct image viewing. Alternatively, you can use the Region (ROI) capture mode of PupSnap to limit the size of the captured image, or you may want to experiment with the PupSnap Thumbnail feature, which permits automatic downsizing of large images at the time of capture.

Thanks for your question. Smile
