# The simplest use, save a screen shot of the 1st monitor
with mss() as sct:
    sct.shot()

An ultra fast cross-platform multiple screenshots module in pure python using ctypes.

  • Python 2 & 3 and PEP8 compliant, no dependency;
  • very basic, it will grab one screen shot by monitor or a screen shot of all monitors and save it to a PNG file;
  • but you can use PIL and benefit from all its formats (or add yours directly);
  • integrate well with Numpy and OpenCV;
  • it could be easily embedded into games and other software which require fast and platform optimized methods to grab screen shots (like AI, Computer Vision);
  • get the source code on GitHub;
  • learn with a bunch of examples;
  • you can report a bug;
  • need some help? Use the tag python-mss on StackOverflow;
  • and there is a complete, and beautiful, documentation :)
  • MSS stands for Multiple Screen Shots;

Installation

You can install it with pip:

pip install --upgrade mss
