Take a screenshot, paste the URL
I’m a big fan of integrated non-intrusive, productivity-enhanching applications. One category which is especially useful for me is the automatic publishing of screenshots, making conversations about looks and state so much easier.
Mr Bulgur: The label of the “More” button looks totally skewed.
Jean-Claude Which button?! You mean the home one? Looks good for me on Windows.
Mr Bulgur See, it looks like the v-centering algo is broken on OS X: http://hunch.se/s/8y/9sd0h2fcow8gs.png
Jean-Claude Ah! Yes, I’ll fix it in a blink of an eye.
Since this functionality is rather trivial I looked around if someone had written an open source version, which I could simply adjust to my needs. None found. So I wrote one myself – Scrup.
Scrup is a simple little OS X application, or system plug-in, which sits in your menu bar:
When you take a screenshot, Scrup sends it to a web server of your choice. The web server then do something with the image (saves it, doh!) and returns a URL to the new image. That URL is then placed in your pasteboard, ready to be pasted somewhere. Scrup also keeps a list of the most recent scrups in it’s menu, for easy access at a later date.
Download & install
Visit Scrup on GitHub and read the Download & install section.
