Pyautogui screenshot. Where does it go? How to save and find later?

2024/4/15 1:10:03

I am learning from Al Sweigart's you tube video for automating the boring stuff. I got to the part of taking screenshots. He didn't really explain in his video so I tested things out. I found that it takes screenshots of the whole desktop but I don't know where they go. I can only find it when do a whole computer search and I don't know how to put it into a folder from there.

Basically I am asking how I can store the images and find those images taken by the pyautogui.screenshot() function. I am not planning on using this for anything at the moment I just want to know how to do it. I went to the pyautogui website and I didn't find anything on where to find and how to save the screenshots. Thank you in advance for your time!

Answer

Here's the link to the documentation on saving screenshots in pyautogui:

https://github.com/asweigart/pyautogui#user-content-screenshot-functions

The screenshot function returns a PIL.Image. You can save that to a file with it's save method.

import pyautogui
im1 = pyautogui.screenshot()
im1.save(r"c:\path\to\my\screenshot.png")

You can also pass the path where you'd like to save the file in the screenshot method call:

import pyautogui
pyautogui.screenshot(r"c:\path\to\my\screenshot1.png")
