I was thinking that it might be really useful (at least for me) to have an advanced snapshots feature. What do I mean with that?

Instead of "Save Viewport As Image" option to have a "Snapshots" option. When I click the "Snapshot" in the menu, a viewport capture will be automatically taken, at the full-detail resolution, without another additional click on the "Full-detail Snapshot" button, into a preselected location. Or this functionality can be implemented to the "Full-detail Snapshot" button itself.

The second nice feature will be to remember and store the camera position in the viewport, and save that as an option in the menu, to the "Snapshots"/"Save viewport as image". Exactly like the "Recent World Files" or "Recent Sessions" menu options. And to save all this snapshots with the scene. If I reopen the scene later, I can continue my work, take a few more snapshots and compare them with the old ones. I can redo the old ones too if I lost them too. And with a keyboard shortcut it`ll be brilliant.

It`ll help me greatly, workflow wise. Would that be possible?
