It's a snap

Take screenshots with ease using this simple program.

We've reviewed our fair share of screenshot utilities in our time, and we can't say that it gets much easier than SnapaShot. This simple tool lets users easily capture exactly the portion of the screen that they want and save it in a variety of formats. While it's not the most feature-filled program we've ever seen, we think it's a great choice for basic screen capture tasks.

The program's interface is extremely common-sense; it consists of a frame that can be dragged around the screen and resized by dragging its borders. At the bottom left corner of the frame users can view its dimensions, a great feature if you're trying to take a screenshot of a particular size. A discreet arrow on the side gives users access to a menu that contains the program's options for taking the screen capture. Users can either copy the image to the clipboard or save it in one of six different file formats. That's really the extent of SnapaShot's features--it's nothing fancy, but for many users it will be just enough. Although we typically fault programs for not including a Help file, SnapaShot is so basic and intuitive that this is not a major issue. Overall, we liked SnapaShot a lot, and we think it's a great alternative to the built-in Windows screenshot utility.

SnapaShot comes as a ZIP file and is accessible after extraction with no need for installation. We recommend this program to all users.
