Create Screenshot Directory

Each week, I create a new directory for the test. It’s where I store notes, reports, artifacts, etc. I also create a screenshot directory and then set my system to auto-save screenshots to there. So I bash scripted it up. Here’s the script that will automatically create the new directory, the screenshot directory and tell my Mac system to save screenshots there:


if [ “$1” == “” ]
echo “Usage: ./myscreens.sh [dirname]”
mkdir ~/Desktop/$1
mkdir ~/Desktop/jobs/$1/screens
defaults write com.apple.screencapture location ~/Desktop/$1/screens
killall SystemUIServer
