As the name suggests, this little indicator can save a screenshot of a chart (the chart the indicator is applied to) to a user selected folder. It can also upload the screenshot to and copy the link to the clipboard.
And it can even post to BMT.
It works with a little button on the chart(see picture), a button on the toolbar or with the hotkey Alt+P (this can be changed in line 160 of the code).

There are only two parameters to be entered:
the path to the folder NT shall save the screenshots to, default is C:\NTScreenshots and an option to either use the button or the hotkey.
The indicator can easily be applied to many charts without having to fear performance issues.

Thread is here:

Current version is v3.4

Changelog archive can be found in the thread post#1

December 21 2012: v2.4
Fixed a bug where windows in front of chart got caught on the screenshot. Timer function will not work when chart is minimized.

December 29 2012: v2.5
Fixed a bug where window is not fitted on the screenshot.

January 1 2013: v2.6
Major update. Added a setting "Post". When you take a screenshot it opens a dialog where you have to specify the thread id and can add text. The screenshot will be taken right away, not when you press "Post". When you press "Post" it will be posted directly to BMT. For this to work you will have to enter your API key in the indicator settings dialog. It also has a checkbox so you can even select to post text without a screenshot.

January 1 2013: v2.7
Added the option to enter a default thread id. This is purely optional, if left blank it will show the same behaviour as before. If a default thread id is specified, it also can be overwritten manually when you make a post in case you want to post to a different thread than the default.

January 1 2013: v2.8
Multi-line posts now working.

January 2 2013: v2.9
The buttons show the methods now (text for taskbar buttons and color code for chart buttons).
Hot Key is now user selectable, so you can use different ones for different methods.
Bug fixes: post form will not maximize/minimize anymore and will be brought back to front when button is pressed again.

January 2 2013: v3.0
Bug fix in PostPic.
Bug fix messages were not always displayed correctly on chart.

3. Jan 2013 v3.1
Now also works on minimized charts.

15. Jan 2013 v3.2
Corrected bug where price axis got cut off under some circumstances.

17. May 2013 v3.3 Critical Update, update immediately
Changed addresses from http to https, should work again.

10. March 2014 v3.4
Added a new option to only print the chart area itself, no frames or so...
Red "P" does no more show on screenshot.
