Hi,

Do we know of a way to Automatically Save Screenshots (Print Screen) as JPEG?
Don't need PNG, filesize is excessive.


Any tips gratefully recieved.

What exactly do you mean with automatic? I can see at least three meanings.
1. It makes the screen shot automatically, for example each minute.
2. It makes the screen shot if you press some hotkey, but safes it automatically as JPG.
3. You need to give some command to save it, but it defaults to jpg, so there is no need to change the default.

If you mean 3. paste the screenshot into irfanview (free). It has jpg as default, while Windows' Snip and Sketch defaults to png.
