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.
