I like the native screenshot functionality that comes with macOS. I know one can configure the folder location and even filename prefix of each screenshot, but I would like to use a dedicated shortcut for screenshots where I want to easily specify the filename of the screenshot itself at the moment of saving it (ideally shortcut + region selection + name + enter).

Is this doable with the screenshot features that come with macOS?

  • Can you describe your exact workflow? If every filename is going to need typing in, does in matter at what point you do it?
