Edit 2022: we removed this feature because it consumed too much bandwidth and thus created funding issues.
I hate preparing screenshots. My current workflow is convoluted: I grab a screenshot, paste it in Sketch, name the layer, export the layer as PNG in two resolutions into a directory which I then upload to my server via rsync. It is absurd. I waste so much time putting images on my work logs. I needed to resolve this, so today I put aside a couple of work-pleasure hours to accomplish it. It was two hours:
Steps to test the feature:
- Head to blank.page
- Grab a screenshot, for example, on a Mac type Cmd + Ctrl + Shift + 4, then press the space bar, and grab your current window.
- Press the preview button and verify that your image is loaded.
This is so much easier than any workflow that I’ve tried before, but I need to keep working on it this week. I will formally announce the feature when it is completed, but since I’m already enjoying it, I suppose there is no harm in sharing things as they are developed.
