Hi Nate, unfortunatelly I'm not familiar with MacOS but is good to know it
offers similar function. You understood right, my goal is to quickly have that
region I crop on my hard drive and at the same time on clipboard for a
miscelaneous usage cases. 

I don't see as a clutter at all since, just for instance, many programs apply
compression on the pictures after paste. Eg, whatsapp messenger. CherryTree
when resizing after paste and so on. Having a centralized, full quality, date
organized of all the screenshots I took seems like a very good practice and
still uses so little of nowadays storages devices.
