Editors' Review

FastStone Capture addresses the shortcomings common to screen-capture programs, and it packages the features and options you need in an easy-to-use interface that simplifies the most cumbersome tasks, including selecting just the parts you want to save, resizing and editing the image, selecting the file format and destination, writing captions, and naming and organizing the final results.

FastStone Capture's primary interface is a small floating task bar with a handful of easy-to-understand icons that activate the program's various methods of capturing screen images: active window, object, rectangle, freehand, full screen, scrolling window, and, for video capture, a screen recorder. Two other buttons select output options and program settings. The program also installs icons on the desktop and system tray. Clicking on an image in any of the capture modes opens the FastStone Editor, a speedy but basic image editor that has some drawing, painting, and effects capabilities. The ability to quickly and easily write and attach captions may be the standout feature. We also like the screen recorder for capturing onscreen video while preserving the context.

FastStone Capture functions quickly, smoothly, and unobtrusively. It downloads, installs, and opens without issues, and, should you decide not to keep it, it uninstalls cleanly without leaving behind any orphan files or folders. FastStone Capture is shareware; it's free to use for 30 days, after which you must purchase and register your copy. We recommend it for all user levels.

"Best simple but through capture program have ever used"

October 09, 2011  |  By grizzzz217

 |  Version: FastStone Capture 7.0

Pros

Most important to me is that it allows me to capture larger than one page pictures or any graphic or even text. Many special options that I haven't even used yet. Had to pay for it but well worth the money.

Cons

None that I can think of except that it's not free but then I don't want to think that I would not pay for a very very useful tool.

Summary

Just a super useable program for capturing almost anything you can think of. We are in a new generation of pictures post that are not easily copyable. I don't use them for anything but my own personal collection.....I will never post a picture I didn't take myself.

"Works Flawlessly with Six Screen Win 7 Pro System"

September 29, 2011  |  By billdube

 |  Version: FastStone Capture 7.0

Pros

- PDF download tutorial explains finepoints of program
- Custom setting to tailor program to suit your needs
- Flawless performance
- Updated regularly
- Puts Windows Snipping Tool to shame.
- 30 day free trial and only $19.95 lifetime reg.

Cons

- You know I dare not say any flaw in this product because I've noticed in past with computers that most perceived flaws on my part are simply from my not knowing the program.

Summary

Great program.
Full featured, yet quick with small overhead.
Comes with image editor that lets you fully manipulate your captured image in more ways than I can describe in a short review...
Kick the tires give it a try you won't regret it.
