The BEST way to take and backup YOUR screenshots ✨

Developers take a lot of screenshots, or at least I do but when you need to refer back to them it can be a challenge.

I'm going to share how I can have crazy amounts of images with easy access to find which app/website they were taken in.

Tools I use


This program is really good for taking, editing, and finding old screenshots. I've been using it since 2022 and in 2023 alone I took almost 5k images/videos 🤯.

Some of the other crazy features are the metadata! You can look up images in a variety of unique ways.

By Application

By Website
Ever wanted to find that screenshot of the bug or feature you had?

Captures then go to my Google Drive folder so they are backed up.

I have enabled "Stream files" so all the files are streamed on demand. That way I don't have to take up all my storage on my system.

Let me know what you think about this setup. Also, feel free to share your setup too!
