Default Small features that would make LICEcap the greatest screen capture software on Earth

1. Quick recording - instead of popping up the file dialog each time you press the 'Record...' button, record instantly to a timestamped .GIF file in the default / last used directory.

2. 'Always on Top' option : The window should stay on top if it loses focus even when not recording. This feature is very important for capturing from video windows / media players.

3. Ability to resize the window smaller than 136 pixels in width. At least make the width resizeable down to 100 pixels, since 100 pixels is the maximum allowed size for posting .GIF images/photos/avatars on most forums. The buttons should (dynamically) resize like in REAPER when the window gets smaller.

4. Low color modes (128-color and 64-color, with or without dithering) for significantly smaller file sizes.

5. Textboxes to allow typing in the desired window size of the capture area (instead of resizing the window manually). There are many times when you want to capture a .GIF of a specified size (320x240, for example).

6. Countdown a few seconds before recording if the 'show title frame' option is unticked.

7. Ability to save non-animated (still) screenshots like the Windows 7 Snipping Tool by setting the max. FPS to '0'

Indeed.

More ideas:

-Snap to edge (of screen or other windows)
-Capture window
+Capture focused window (in which case the final size would end up being the largest size that it did... and then, you would have options to align the smaller sections to the top right, top center, top left, middle right, middle center, et cetera)
-Capture area around mouse
-Different shapes of capture! (circle, ellipse, triangle, isodecagon)

First post updated with another FR.

FR #5 (setting capture dimensions before recording) has been implemented in v1.2, but it still has some quirks:

- The text box doesn't accept 'X' values lower than 160 px, even though it is possible to go down to 136 px with a window resize
- The minimum capture width is still limited to 136 pixels
