Snapper is a small tool for taking screenshots, which we have released under the LGPL license (Open Source). Snapper comes with a simple interface, but differs from similar applications in that it can be completely automated in the background.

To run Snapper in the background, the program can be called with the following Parameters:

snapper -silent [-window] filename

  • if the -window parameter is specified, a screenshot of the current window will be taken instead of the desktop (only available under MS Windows)
  • the file name must be the complete path, incl. file Extension

The file extension determines the format under which the screenshot will be saved. Currently the following extensions are possible:

  • png
  • jpg
  • bmp
