A few weeks ago I released Paparazzi which is an utility for capturing full-length screenshots of websites. I was inspired by Paul Hammonds excellent commandline utility webkit2png which is written in PyObjc.
Paparazzi seems to have grown more popular than I ever expected; over 3500 downloads in two weeks, I didn’t even expect it to crawl above 100 downloads. And I love the emails I’m getting, it makes me motivated to iron out those last few bugs before I would say it is out of beta.
In short I need to fix the following things before I’ll even begin thinking about new features:
The most requested feature I’ve gotten is some sort of batch function which I’ll start working on as soon as I get around to fixing the above issues.
I want to keep Paparazzi simple, but if I’m adding a batch function I’ll either need a new window (that doesn’t open by default of course), or add a drawer to the existing window. I’m still not sure which route I’ll go yet…
I also want to add Applescript support, while Applescript may not be overly used I think it’ll be greatly appreciated by those who do, and once Mac OSX Tiger ships, I think more people will get into Applescript thanks to Automator
