Editors' Review

+

Excellent screen capture apps aren't hard to come by, but excellent free ones are. With sophisticated features at no cost, it's hard to reach higher than Gadwin PrintScreen. An attractive, easily navigated interface opens up a customization wonderland for users to decide default settings for shortcut key associations, capture preferences, and output.

For our purposes, the clicking and dragging regions is the clear choice. Misjudge your region's dimensions and Gadwin PrintScreen lets you readjust them without having to start over, something many commercial competitors don't do. Setting the app to automatically open each screen capture in your favorite viewer or editor makes up for the program's lack of built-in image editor, still achieving a seamless screen capture experience from start to finish that grabs and delivers shots just where you want them.

"Actually works"

February 06, 2009  |  By Kaycorp

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.3

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

Destination selection could be defined a little easier. No capabillity to define a section of the screen to capture.

Summary

IIt is easy enough to use and the capture is very quick. Having to use an editor for cropping is a bother, but not so terrible.

"Great very flexible."

February 06, 2009  |  By rosshiuk

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.3

Pros

Great screen capture, plenty of customisable options

Cons

sometimes can't capture 'dialogue boxes'. My tip - use the rectangular area source tool option, this will capture those boxes...

Summary

If you want more control over screen capture then this tool is for you

"Good but not perfect"

January 05, 2009  |  By yyfun25

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.3

Pros

Easy to use, small file size, remain picture quality.

Cons

Cannot do further editing for example putting remarks, draw a box or rectangle on your captured screen.

Summary

Gadwin Printscreen Professional gave you more editing function but it's not a free application. If you just require simple and basic printscreen feature, Gadwin Printscreen is enough for you.

"Very easy to use"

December 12, 2008

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.3

Pros

I love the fact that you can start to capture the image and then stop and readjust what you were trying to capture without having to start over again.

Cons

You need to remember to move your cursor away from the image you want to capture because when you click "print screen" it will freeze what the screen looks like, including the cursor.

Summary

For a free software product you can't go wrong. Others out there cost $30 to $50 and there is just no need to pay that money when you can get a free image capture program like this. Well done to the developers!

"Exactly what I was looking for"

December 06, 2008  |  By chamarith

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.3

Pros

This is an excellent little program that has several options to customize it to do just what you want. like it better than another program that was not free. You won't be disappointed.

Cons

Doesn't scroll

Summary

Most of the pay programs will scroll automatically which allows the user to capture the entire page.
