Create An Automatic Screenshot Journal
Time Snapper is a unique application that can be used to create an automatic screenshot journal. The software automatically creates screenshots of the user's desktop or the active application window and saves them in a selected directory.
By default a new screenshot is created every 5 seconds in png format that is covering the whole screen. The taking of new screenshots can be started and stopped in the application and it is definitely a good idea to pause while entering user data or other personal data.
The user can select several different formats for the screenshots and play the "movies" on a day by day basis. The program can be configured to delete images that are older than a selected number of days.
I can see some uses for this, for example to create a production diary when working in applications like Photoshop or a video editing application. The pro version comes with several handy features like excluding certain applications from the process.Advertisement
Actually, a potential use for something like this would be to capture an application that is having problems, so you might get a clue as to why the problem is happening.
Another potential use for this would be to see how you’re using your time online in a visual format.
another use would be to transform your boss in Big Brother.
I should send the idea to Scott Adams.

What boss is going to be satisfied with simple screenshots when there are so nice apps avaible with live video from all network PCs and email+IM logs as nice bonus? :)
There are actually a number of software programs available that will secretly take screen shots on a regular basis. Some are for the corporate world and others are for parents monitoring kids (or husband’s/wives, boyfriend/girlfriend monitoring each other). On the personal side, I believe there have been some court cases where doing this without consent of the other adult party was ruled an invasion of privacy and subject to criminal penalties.
