Screen-capturing software

Avoid paying for this program when the free version provides basically the same results.

ScreenHunter Pro provides users with a program that quickly and easily replaces the traditional method of making a screenshot. While the program works well, users may want to try the free version instead.

Screenhunter has a fairly self-explanatory interface designed to help users toggle between options for capturing screenshots. For those who are still confused, the program offers a very in-depth Help file that walks through each function and your opportunities. While choosing between entire screen captures or focusing on a particular image and saving it was simple, we couldn't help but wonder why anyone would choose the paid version over ScreenHunter Free. Both perform the same tasks quickly and intuitively; they even look the same, though the Pro version does offer more-advanced options. However, those options for adjusting the highlight color or zooming in really don't enhance the overall function of the program or the results.

ScreenHunter Pro accurately captured images that we demanded, but it didn't out-perform its free version. Unless you have already used ScreenHunter Free and are craving more-advanced options, we would recommend users steer clear of the ScreenHunter Pro download in favor of the other version.
