Snapz Pro X 1.0.2 Fixes Several Bugs — For those needing to take screenshots in Mac OS X, the only serious tool available is Ambrosia Software’s Snapz Pro X, which provides the functions most people need, such as saving in multiple formats, being able to select on-screen objects easily, naming screenshot files automatically, and saving to user-specified locations. Ambrosia has just released Snapz Pro X 1.0.2, a minor upgrade which fixes a crash when invoked from within Final Cut Pro and saves in indexed color if needed for file formats provided by QuickTime. Finnish and Traditional Chinese localizations are also now provided, along with documentation in Spanish. Some bugs remain – when you set the color change to the greyscale palette, Snapz Pro X converts the pixels to greyscale equivalents but still saves the file as an indexed color file. Plus, if you set the destination folder to one on a network volume that isn’t mounted, taking a screenshot locks up Mac OS X entirely (which is at least partly Mac OS X’s fault). The upgrade is free to registered users.; it’s a 13.1 MB download. [ACE]
