My responsibilities went from four steps to two; a 50% reduction. I will admit that it only saves me a minute or so each time, but I am all about reducing inefficiencies and friction in my life right now. In addition, because I was testing image quality vs. file size of various screenshot apps (Pixa, Little Snapper, and Voila) I already saved myself at least 30 minutes.
With a little bit more work I could simplify or even remove the final step. Example: step 4 could be easy and fast by leveraging Dropzone. Simply drag the optimized image to a dropzone and it will place it in the appropriate directory, upload to a site, attach to an email, etc.
