Editors' Review


While we normally appreciate user guidance, the pop-up how-to guides got in the way of what proved to be an effective tool for capturing and manipulating images.

Ashampoo Magical Snap adds an expandable toolbar to the top of your window that lets you capture entire Web pages or specific selections. It also captures desktop and window screenshots--basically anything that appears on your screen. Once you make a selection, pop-up how-to guides walk you through the editing process. We found them a little overwhelming, and appreciated the option to turn them off. Once you capture an image, the toolbar smartly changes to offer more editing options, and two other expandable toolbars are added to your window for more editing and saving options. We were able to quickly capture whole or partial screens, add basic elements, rotate, and resize the image. Results are saved to your location of choice.

Much like the how-to guides, the Help file is extensive and overwhelming. But once you get the hang of the program enough to not need the guides, it is much easier to navigate. Ashampoo Magical Snap offers a short 10-day trial period, but if you request a promotional code, it gets bumped up to 40 days. Once you get down to using this smart screen capture tool, you'll like what you see. We recommend it to any user with a need to create, customize, and save images.

"The userinterface is great"

December 07, 2011  |  By HensKolff

 |  Version: Ashampoo Snap 5 5.0.2


The tiny bar at the top of the screen works always
The interface at the sides (after taking a shot or making a Video) is perfect


The tiny bar at the top gets hit (by accident) too often.


I said it in the pros. I used Gadwin (FREE) before, but this product is much more flexible.
The most easy thing to use is: the printscreen button on your keyboard. It copies the desktop and shows the righthand menu where you can select almost anything you want: save, delete, print a.s.o.
The bar at the top gives a wide range of different possible screenshots and a way the construct videos of your desktop as you perform various actions there.

"Comes Pretty Close too PERFECT"

November 30, 2011  |  By Brad D. Feuerhelm

 |  Version: Ashampoo Snap 5 5.0.2


I love the part it does video screen shots.
Cheap compared to others
Doesn't take a rocket scientist to use it.


Don't know of any!!!!


I've used and paid big bucks for other screen shot software, also have used a couple of free programs. None beat Snap 5. If you are looking for a screen shot program you have found the one to get here!!!!

"Good for the price"

November 12, 2011  |  By pappyjoe7

 |  Version: Ashampoo Snap 5 5.0.2


It does what it says it will do...most of the time


Sometimes sound is missing for a couple seconds and the odd time lips are not in sync with the sound


I use Snap4 most of the time because I have no problems at all with it
