Things happen. When those things apply to Clearpage our clients or anything else that sparks our interest you can read about it here.
We find ourselves constantly needing to take screenshots around this place, and the old utilities weren't cutting it. The Grab application is a hassle having to click through options, then it pops up an annoying window with the capture adding to the desktop clutter. On top of that it refuses to capture stills of videos. So we created a simple app, you run it from the dock, it gives you a pointer, you select what you want and it goes to the clipboard, and then the app closes. Perfect! And it captures video stills. You can download it here for Mac OS 10.5.
