    iOS 9 automatically creates a photo album to store screenshots.
    Is there any way possible to accomplish that on a Mac?
    I know about a Terminal command that allows you to define a regular folder on the HD, but my wish goes further than that. Perhaps a dedicated app?

    Yes I read it in the comments after my post. Also tried it myself. There wasn't any error message in the Terminal, but nothing changed, they are still on the desktop.

    Strangely TinkerTool displays it as destination path for screenshots now:

    It's a nice free application by the way to easily enable hidden features for example. And there is nothing in it that might be able to harm your Mac like Onyx could do. But you can also just change the file type or folder for screenshots.

    Thanks for all the links to these apps !
    My main purpose is to take screenshots on my Mac and have them available on my iPad (p.e. in GoodNotes, Bamboo Paper etc. that have access to Photo's albums).
