Basic Screen Capture Utility

I am in need of an application that will capture an element on the screen when clicked with a mouse.

The application should:

- capture to PNG or JPG files

- capture only images or webcams

- capture only the image area and not the containing window

- be able to toggle capture mode on/off

- when in capture mode, outline the object to capture with a blue highlight

- timestamp the filename

- set path in preferences menu

- set preferred capture format in preferences menu

- be light-weight... splash screen on startup, but other than that virtually invisible

I am also interested in a Windows version of this software. If this can be done with Java to make it cross-platform, then I will consider it. Bonus points for being able to create this application in C# to run in the "system tray."

Source code to be provided at project completion.

Skills: Cocoa, Java, Mac OS, Objective C
