Ambrosia Software Inc. has released version 1.0.1 of
Snapz Pro X, the pro image capture tool for Mac OS X. The new version adds features, fixes bugs, improves Mac OS X 10.1 compatibility and more.
Snapz Pro X provides users with much more flexible screen saving features than the “Grab” utility built into Mac OS X. Users can save images in .bmp, .pict, .gif, .jpg, .png, .tiff, .pdf and Photoshop files. Users can also optionally record onscreen actions in a QuickTime movie.
The utility also puts in place the ability to scale, crop, color depth-change and dither images. It can also add borders, generate automatic thumbnails, and overlay watermarks and copyright notices.
Changes made to Snapz Pro X 1.0.1 include:
The “Register Snapz Pro X” application no longer refuses to launch because of a “FatCarbon” error
Numerous small changes for Mac OS X 10.1 compatibility, and some general bug fixes as well
Some minor performance enhancements in the movie capture feature if your monitor is set to Millions (though they still highly recommend switching your monitor to Thousands mode for movie capture)
A number of minor features, such as a “movie guide” that shows you the area of the screen you are recording, a separate selection rectangle for movies, the ability to turn off the Desktop icon previews, and other tweaks
Added French, Japanese and Italian localizations to Snapz Pro X
Included a complete localization of the Snapz Pro X documentation in French and Japanese
Included a Snapz Pro X FAQ
Snapz Pro X 1.0.1 costs US$29 for the regular version, $49 for the QuickTime version. It requires Mac OS X. Upgrading from Snapz Pro 2 (the version for “Classic” Mac OS) costs $19.
