Easy Screen Capture And Annotation

CNET Editors' review

Easy Screen Capture And Annotation takes shots of open windows on your computer. You can save the screen shots as virtually any type of image file, resize them, and add text, shapes, and other highlights.

Easy Screen has a clean, visually appealing interface. The program includes many useful features, such as the ability to e-mail screen shots directly from the interface. There's a highlight feature in which you can drag a box over parts of the capture for emphasis. You also can add text boxes and balloons to your captures. You can save your captures as JPEGs, PDFs, and PSD (Photoshop) files, which is useful for creating PowerPoint presentations, Web pages, and printed material. It's great that the program has so many added features, but unfortunately, it doesn't do its job very well. It took a visit to the Help file just to figure out how to grab a screenshot. The Help manual's instructions are overly wordy and rambling. It turns out that a convoluted keyboard shortcut is required to capture screenshots, a cumbersome process. There's no easy one-click way to grab a shot, a functionality that most screen-capture programs include, nor is there any other option listed in the program's menus.

This is a 15-day trial version of Easy Screen Capture And Annotation. The visual design of this program is good, and the added features are nice to have, but the process of grabbing the screenshots should be easier and give you more choices.

    "Cool annotations in this tool"

    March 18, 2014  |   By sarahwilliams25

    Version: Easy Screen Capture And Annotation 2.5

    Pros

    1.Nice annotations
    2.Plenty of capture options
    3.A lot of image file formats
    4.Free Photobucket upload - you can share your captures instantly
    within the application.
    5. You can blur parts of the capture - passwords etc.

    Cons

    Nothing worth mentioning.

    Summary

    Great tool if you want to guide someone. Capture an application or web page and add annotations to clarify the actions needed from the other party. Then all you need is to click "Upload to Photobucket" and the application will provide the link to the image in your clipboard. You can paste it in an e-mail, skype or other messaging software.
    Simple and easy to use too with plenty of features.

    "Nice one with lots of arrows and annotation options"

    January 31, 2013  |   By daylight901

    Version: Easy Screen Capture And Annotation 2.5

    Pros

    Plenty of annotation options
    Supports project that can be edited/updated at a later stage.

    Cons

    You have to save a layer if you want to save as PNG with transparency. Not a big deal, but I needed this.

    Summary

    Easy to use with plenty of annotation options. You can save projects for later use and edit or update them - a HUGE plus here.
