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.

"Worthwhile ap, from the Haus of Spams-a-lot"

August 11, 2011  |  By basesurge

 |  Version: Ashampoo Snap 4.3

Pros

Works. (Even on flash videos)

Cons

Documentation a little weird. These guys are all about email marketing.

Summary

I needed to grab some pix from a video on one of those comedy video sites. You know, one of those sites that protect their content with URL obfuscatrion, etc... (RTMP, really? For a giggle-video site...?) Anyway, if you know what I meant by allofthat, you also know that flassh videos tend to hide from Windows' on-board screen capture fuctionality (doncha' just love flash?). Sometime ago I saw a thing on the CNET cheapscate blog that the ashampoo folks were offering some kind of super-cheap promotion on their products and, as I needed a screen cap ap, I paid about $5.00 for Snap3. I didn't have ocasion to use it till now. After some fiddling around with the skin which was fightng some kind of stupid war with my video driver, I got my pix [ F-U atomfilms!].

I found the UI a little off-putting (I'm an old XP fuddie-duddy and not used to all of these new-fangled screen-overlay thingies) I --might-- have had an easier time if I had actually read all of those help screens... Oh well. BTW, Ashampoo is a German outfit so the documentation can be a little strange, in a strange Yoda-esque way the sentances are sometimes written...

These guys are really into email marketing. Get ready for a lot of messages from Ranier and Das Boys. You can opt out I guess but then you'd miss out on potentially cool stuff, like the $5 upgrade to Snap4 I just took advantage of... You can probably do better than the list price on the site if you wait for one of their frequent sales
