Screenshots have become a quintessential ingredient for most of us. While some of us take screenshots to capture peculiar problems others simply do it in order to maintain an archive of things they love. In the recent years capturing a screenshot has been a breeze thanks to a plethora of tools that help us in doing that. However, a daunting aspect of all this is that out folders become cluttered with Screenshots over a period of time and deleting the same involves checking out each and every one of those.
I have personally devised a crude way to handle the screenshot litter, that is save all of them in a folder and empty the same regularly. That said the method I just mentioned isn’t that great especially since you may end up deleting a screenshot that you may need in the future. It is for reasons like this that you might prefer “Shots”, a screenshot manager for Mac.
The menu layout is pretty straightforward, in the left pane one can add the directories to be scanned and can also sort out the screenshots in ascending and descending order. Users can also delete multiple screenshots from else move it to another folder. The Shots is indeed a useful app for managing your screenshots but in order to score on the utilitarian front, the app needs to evolve. For instance, the app sorts out the screenshots by matching the file name with the words “Screenshots” in it.
Since I use a third party screenshot app on my Mac and usually rename the files, Shots simply refused to pick up such files. Instead of using the app I can simply search for “Screenshots” in my folders and then sort it out using the sorting options in the Finder. Another missing bit is an inbuilt picture viewer, yes it would have been great if the app baked in a viewer that let users see the screenshot by hovering over the same. The makers of the app assured that the upcoming AI feature will fix the things but until then the app lacks on these fronts. Hopefully, the future iterations will handle these bottlenecks.
