» Thumb Press from Michael @ Zapr
Just found this on Cameron Reilly's blog. ThumbPress 1. Pick a size. 2. Type ad URL3. Thumbpress goes off, takes a screen shot, dumps it into photo bucket and gives you a URL to it. Slick. [Read More]



Hi Cameron - I can't access the Thumbpress site yet. But another app for Mac OS X that does the same basic function (then some) is Paparazzi:

Will check out Thumbpress once it's back up.


Michael Bailey

Thanks Cameron, yeah, typically once an idea, which I think might be beneficial to someone else, enters my head that's pretty much all I focus on.


I took a quick look at the Paparazzi site -
ThumbPress is a web-based service - you might not have been able to get to it, as I just registered the domain name a few hours before I finished developing the site.

There may still be a few issues with one of the components which I used - it was from a French company, I don't speak French, and they seem to be very slow to respond.

We'll see how it goes with them, and if they can't live up to their product, I'll just take a day and code my own component to replace theirs.

Des Paroz

Got it working now. It took several goes, as the site just timed out. Interesting idea.

Michael Bailey

Good to hear Des - I had just put a new rendering engine in place to day - so far so good, hopefully it lasts forever.

Michael B


Nice. For normal screen shots I use Screen Hunter. Works great for me.
