Snapshot: directly jpg

#1

Post by Duliwi » Wed Jul 10, 2019 4:04 pm

I found the App which can make Snapshots of the Screen. But it can only make png. And I must open the PNG and resave it as jpg. Is there a Snapshot program, that can save directly jpg?

Thank you.

Hotshots, it's in MXPI if I am not mistaken.

You do have to set this up in the settings.

I've not tried this, but if you change the filename when you save the snapshot, changing the .png to .jpg, does that work?

No, it just saves the .png file with a .jpg extension.

Shutter is another one that can save multiple formats.
