Why create screenshots of dialogs automatically

One way how to check the GUI is go through all (or most of) the dialogs manually. Another approach is to create screenshots of dialogs automatically and then check only these screenshots.

The automated way has several advantages:

  • browsing the GUI is done automatically and the tester only has to review the results - saves time
  • the screenshots can be distributed among several people - makes the review faster

Of course, this doesn't mean that we should abandon manual testing of the GUI in favour of automated screenshots creation. Both manual testing and automation are important for a well-working QA process.
