Tiny is the application that you will install on your Mac if you take dozens of screenshots a day

I don’t know about you, but I take a lot of screenshots a day. I do this to create images like the one you can see above, or to send visual guides to people who need some help finding an option on their Mac. For you it’s this little application, Tiny, which automatically renames those screenshots to help us.

When you take one of these screenshots, OS X stores it on the desktop and names it ” Screenshot 2015-05-26 at 23.39.44 “. When we have many of these screenshots, so many names of this style can confuse us. Tiny’s trick is to detect what’s on that screenshot and give it a more suitable name. In the example above you can see that the screenshot has a name starting with “Finder”.

There are no intermediate steps, Tiny is installed in the OS X menu bar and already takes care of renaming the capture and optionally showing it through Quick Look in case we want to see how it looks. The only thing you need to have activated is access to the application’s help devices from System Preferences, which the program itself opens directly on first use so that we can change it.

Tiny is completely free , although its developer encourages us to donate to foundations like Wikipedia if we want to make some kind of compensation. It requires OS X Yosemite to work, so it’s only for the most updated ones.
