    Basically this guide will teach you how to set up Raspi2PNG, use a single command script
    and set up a samba link to easily access those screen shots from a designated folder.

    
    Step 1
    First you need to get the program/dependency and compile the bin
    
    sudo apt-get install libpng12-dev
    
    git clone https://github.com/AndrewFromMelbourne/raspi2png
    cd raspi2png
    make
    
    Step 2
    Now you need to move raspi2png to your local bin and create a .sh script
    
    sudo mv raspi2png /usr/local/bin
    
    sudo nano /usr/local/bin/screenshot.sh
    
    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/screenshot.sh
    
    copy and paste this
    
    #!/bin/bash
    raspi2png -p ~/RetroPie/screenshots/$(date +%m%d%Y_%H%M%S).png
    
    save by "ctrl + x" then "y"
    
    Step 3
    now to create screenshots folder and add samba link
    
    mkdir ~/RetroPie/screenshots
    
    sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
    
    copy and paste this at the end of the file
    
    [screenshots]
    comment = screenshots
    path = "/home/pi/RetroPie/screenshots"
    writeable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    create mask = 0644
    directory mask = 0755
    force user = pi
    
    Step 4
    Restart Samba server and take your first screenshot
    
    sudo service smbd restart
    
    in terminal type
    
    screenshot.sh
    
    Step 5
    Access your screenshots folder through samba
    
    \\retropie
    
    or mac os x
    smb://retropie
    
    Step 6
    Clean up left over folder
    
    sudo rm -r ~/raspi2png
