Elite Dangerous Screenshot Utility

Postby Lenslok » Mon May 09, 2016 10:02 pm

Evening CMDRs,

I've finally gotten around to uploading a screenshot utility I started a few months back - this is available for download at https://github.com/ablewhite/edscreenshotutility. Basically, this installs as a Windows service that sits in the background, waiting for BMP images to get saved to your screenshot folder. Once it spots one of these, it auto-converts the image to either .JPG or .PNG and optionally deletes the original BMP to save space. It comes with a taskbar app that allows a bunch of options to be configured, including:

  • Which folder to watch for BMPs
  • What to do with said BMPs when found
  • Which format to convert to
  • JPG compression quality
There's both a simple setup.exe and the entire source available at the GitHub link - check the README.md file for details.

Hope some of you find this useful!
