Screen cap creator

Make screen captures and much more with this inventive program.

CaptureXT Screen Capture allows users to take standard screenshots, but also provides tools to customize them. With a large collection of options and high usability, this program really excels.

The program's interface was incredibly simple thanks to a nice layout and excellently labeled commands. In addition, the program's initial screen is a three-step instruction on operation, and there is a nice Help file for bigger questions. The program begins offering users a little something extra right from the get-go. By clicking on the Capture button, users are given options for standard items like full-screen, windows, or a rectangular area, but surprisingly allows user to make circular, polygonal, and even hand-drawn screenshots. The image appears on screen and users can tweak it using a menu of tools along the right side. Here, simple one-click options for color adjustment, frame making, rotation, and size were excellent additions. On the opposite side users will find a menu for standard drawing tools like adding shapes and text, which we didn't find as useful. Overall, the program's functionality was great. The program's best feature was a customizable hot-key capture system. Users can set the keys they want to make a quick screen cap.

By offering a fine screen-capturing program, along with some surprises, it won't take the entire 14-day trial to realize that there is something special about this program.
