Making screenshots overfills memory

Post by DrLibra »

Sometimes I need to make a lot of screenshots (more than 700). After that memory is overfilled and I need to reload XnView before I can make more screenshots. Can it be fixed?

But do you save and close each screenshot?

I save them into folder, I don't open them (Capture Setup -> Save -> Directory -> <some folder>).

Confirmed memory leak. See this by using multiple desktop capture while watching Process Explorer. I'm using the F10 key and save as bmp.
It occurs also with v.1.80.3, but not v.1.74.
