Dear Alfred users,

Here is another screenshots workflow for Alfred. I created it while I has learnt how to write an Alfred workflow. Maybe you find it useful.

By default, the screenshot is stored in a file located at your ~/Desktop directory. This could be overridden, either by pressing the  key,  key,  key,  key, or Fn key.

  • ⌘ - instructs the workflow to put a screenshot to the clipboard.
  • ⌥ - shares a screenshot via Dropbox and stores a sharing link to the clipboard.
  • ⌃ - shares a screenshot via Transfer.sh and stores a sharing link to the clipboard.
  • ⇧ - shares a screenshot via File.io and stores a sharing link to the clipboard.
  • Fn - shares a screenshot via 0x0.st and stores a sharing link to the clipboard.

Screenshot files will be named according to the following pattern screenshot_%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S.png

       Y       Year in full form (e.g., 2006).
       m       Numeric month, a number from 1 to 12.
       d       Day, a number from 1 to 31.
       H       Hour, a number from 0 to 23.
       M       Minutes, a number from 0 to 59.
       S       Seconds, a number from 0 to 59.

Default local screenshot folder ~/Desktop can be changed by the workflow DefaultLocalScreenshotFolder variable.

There is no need to install a Dropbox software to your MacOS. The only requirement is to log into the web Dropbox account and create an access token for the workflow.
