Find latest screen shot and copy image to clipboard

Recommended Posts

As a remote worker, I have to send coworkers multiple screen shots a day as we collaborate on things.

Current behavior

To send my most recent screen shot,

  1. I launch Alfred
  2. Type 'screen shot'
  3. Scan for the most recent time stamp
  4. Drag and drop the file from Alfred to Slack


Is there a better/faster way? (ideally I could do everything from my keyboard)


I remember in an older Alfred version, my file results were sorted by Last Modified, so at least the latest screen shot was always at the top.

Welcome @ajburlingame,


Seems like RecentlyAdded would fit your needs well. Set it up to use ~/Dropbox/screenshots as one of (or the) directory to check, then use the first option: it shows all folder contents ordered by the most recently added.

This looks great! I changed the directory to ~/Dropbox/screenshots as you suggested but am not seeing any screenshots, just the please wait dialogue. I quit Alfred Preferences and added screen shots after I edited the workflow and that did not work.


Any pointers?


Thank you so much!
