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.

"Works as documented"

March 20, 2011  |  By ltwardzak

 |  Version: Ashampoo Snap 4.2.0

Pros

Does everything well

Cons

Kind of wish there was a snap-and-go option. That is a little less complicated way to get the capture and place it where I want it.

Summary

Good app that's worth the cost.

Pros

Less system resources usage. Very innovative, intuitive and easy. The best part is, it can do what all the high-price capturing software can do, affordably.

Cons

I don't like telling one.

Summary

Finally, we don't need those system hogs application with a high price to make interesting capturing and presenting. I really love this one!
