Viewing screenshots through image viewer

Anybody know where to change the screenshot destination path ? For now, I just hacked /etc/crontab/root to periodically move the screenshot files to my /mnt/us/pictures/screenshots subfolder where the viewer can find them. Don't mind the 1 minute lag, but of course less things running is always better...

Code:
*/1 * * * * /bin/mv /mnt/us/documents/screen_shot-*.gif /mnt/us/pictures/screenshots/

Thanks,
Martin

This isn't really a solution, but it's better than your work-around. If you have Launchpad, you can set a hotkey to run "/bin/mv /mnt/us/documents/screen_shot-*.gif". That way, you can click it right after taking a screenshot. No unnecessary CPU usage when you're not taking a screenshot, and on the average, less wait time for each screenshot to get transferred.

3 Keycombos is kind of a pain though:
Alt+G (take screenshot)
Shift+G (move screenshot, you can make this whatever you want)
Alt+Z (refresh screensaver folder)

You may be able to combine these into one launchpad command, but I'm not exactly sure how.
