If you are so lazy and simply want to combine the top and bottom screens of the screenshots you take without using your computer, well here you go.

This is screenshot-merge and it does just that: merge every screenshot on your [micro]SD card. The result is a bunch of images in the folder "screenshots-merged". It only asks for confirmation and patience.

Get the latest release

This is obviously inspired by Screenshot Tool, a PC program by @RedHat but this comes with a few changes and limitations...
  • Merged screenshots are in .bmp format. lpp-3ds can't save in .png (at least for right now). This does raise the filesize.
  • There's no transparency on the sides of the bottom screenshots.
  • Templates can't be used at the moment due to strange limitations that I'm looking into.
So, what are the advantages then?
  • Done entirely on the 3DS, doesn't need a computer! Then (if you really want to) use a mobile device to transfer the screenshots (FTP? inserting SD card?) and upload using it.
  • Only takes a few button presses and out comes images ready for uploading to a service like imgur! imgur will convert it to a .png.
  • Supports ninjhax 2.x, NTR CFW, and Luma3DS Rosalina screenshots!
I figured the current downsides wouldn't bother most people, so I'm releasing it in the state that it's in. Enjoy!

@ihaveamac I used this for NTR, success, but nothing in the screenshot-merged folder
the format is top_XXXX.bmp and bot_XXXX.bmp at the root of the SD card. if whatever you were using has a different format, please tell me. the final result are a bunch of files at /screenshots-merged/ntr/mrg_XXXX.bmp
