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.

"Not very dependable."

October 28, 2010  |  By aalix

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.4

Pros

Does the basic job of copying screen.

Cons

Will fail to work if printscreen button is pressed successively.

Summary

It's a freeware product that needs updating. Picassa 3 has a printscreen feature that works better and is a freeware.

"Free & easy to use, does exactly what it says it will."

August 20, 2010  |  By FlybyExpat

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.4

Pros

Download and use in just a few minutes! Capture the whole screen, or a window, or select an area- save as a file (you choose: jpeg, bmp etc.) wherever you want it - or just print it out... done!
You can even choose the shortcut key you want to use!

Cons

Being truly free, this item must surely embarass the other software producers here on cnet that merely claim to be 'free'... this IS, they are NOT!

Summary

This is a great tool to have on any pc - easy to use, versatile, and no malware! Free to use, quick to download, simple interface and small file. Can't go wrong!

"Looked like what i wanted, but not."

August 17, 2010  |  By KevinProv

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.4

Pros

Save screen to file works nicely.

Cons

Sending screen to printer is on-size only. Cannot get it to fill sheet of paper.

Summary

Using landscape mode to mimic screen dimensions, and telling printer to scale up 133% results in what looks like the proper, but its offset by a large top margin, cutting off the bottom 1/3 of the image. Why, I don't know. Guess i have to be content with grabbing as a file, then finding that file, and letting windows print it full-sheet.

"Awesome program, but not the best."

July 16, 2010  |  By Zenmetsu

 |  Version: Gadwin PrintScreen 4.4

Pros

Works very well, has a ton of features.

Cons

I can't think of any off the top of my head.

Summary

Very good screencap program, however, I have found better.

Personally I use a free screencap program that is less known, as I like to help the underdogs, and I don't mind spending an extra 10 seconds editing the pictures. The one I use also has more features, that Gadwin lacks.

Cons

Can't think of any!

Summary

Valuable tool for home or business. Get it!
