Screen capture with paste to Paint.net

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm new here but have been using Paint.net for at least 20 years or maybe more. I produce user help manuals to support our software production. 

This include several screens hots that I capture in Windows with  Win+Shift+S.

If I have Picasa started then each of my clipboard screen shots are automatically pasted into Picasa.

My question is, would it be possible to do do the same but so that each picture is pasted into Paint.net.

This wold considerably speed up the production.

If you have paint.net open, Win+Shift+S plus
Ctrl+Alt+V will open a new file of the screenshot.

Ok Ctrl+Alt+V does help by reducing one step. But I still need to bring Paint.Net up in front to do that.

I'm searching for at way to only have to do the Win-Shift+S.


Picasa does this by screening the temp folder where the screen capture file is saved.
