"Great, simple and customizable."
Small file, free, and very easy to use. You can also add arrows, boxes and emphasize points of your picture. For posting parts of manuals and screenshots, I'd have to say that this is a very important tool, and very easy to use.
It takes a while to learn how to capture different ways (with Control, Shift + combinations).
A productivity tool that I cannot do without. If you ever print a screen and try to adjust it, stop it and get this product.
By itself, it's cumbersome to remember the different combinations for choosing just a screen, a window, a certain part, or by "drawing" your own box. To counter that, I got a Logitech MX518 and created key combinations so I can launch PicPick at the touch of a button, and have an image captured and saved within seconds. To do this, I had to modify the key combinations (which PicPick was nice enough to allow you to do) and then match those combinations with the mouse software. If you need to capture lots of screen shots, this is a great software to do that. Click, add boxes and arrows, save and you're done. What used to take me 3-5 minutes I can now do in under a minute.
I have recommended this product several times, and is a fantastic productivity booster.
