Thanks. I could do the same thing w/o this but it would take like 5 times as long. I could use it pretty often too.

Hey. Just a few suggestions - this would be a lot more useful if you could, instead of IT taking the screenshot, just choose to send the lastest 'Picture X.png' file that's on the user's desktop? Then I could take pictures of multiple desktops (which I have) or a specific window or whatever or a specific box on screen; have all the Grab features already built into OS X available to me and such...

what would be the point of doing that if you could just send it anyways.. this is just for quick captures and sending

Nice Script :)

I think the next step in evolution of this script should be sending partial screenshots. E.g. I type /partcapture and a rectangle tool emerges (just like taking partial screenshot with and allows me to select part of the desktop.
Another great thing would be (although I don't know if its possible) displaying images inline (in conversation window).

Both evolutions are not possible with Adium scripts, sorry.
