Editors' Review

HyperSnap-DX is priced like similar DirectX-enabled screen capture tools, but its built-in graphics editor saves time, steps, and maybe even money, if you don't have to buy a separate tool. It supports multiple monitors, unlimited undo/redo, FTP upload, non-rectangular window capture, stamps, splits, mirror images, and more. An Office-style layout with thumbnails and a Ribbon toolbar looks at home on any desktop. HyperSnap-DX is free to try for 20 days.

Pros

Portable version: During setup, we had the option of creating a portable version of HyperSnap on a removable or network disk.

Setup menu: The Ribbon-style toolbar's Setup tab enables quick changes to HyperSnap-DX's configuration, including Mouse Keys, Hotkeys, Voice, and Startup.

Extended Screen Capture: HyperSnap-DX can automatically resize windows to be much larger than your screen before capturing the image; no scrolling required.

Graphics editor: The Edit tab includes Drawing Tools and useful options, such as HTML tags, while the Image tab offers Stamps, Frames, Shadows, and many other filters and effects.

Cons

TextSnap no longer supported: TextSnap doesn't work with DirectX, DirectWrite, and other accelerated graphics technologies or with Java, .NET, Windows 8, and other new programming environments, and therefore it's no longer supported, except in legacy applications.

No video: HyperSnap-DX doesn't capture video; but HyperCam, from the same developer, does. As an added bonus, it's now freeware.

Bottom Line

When basic screen capture tools won't cut it, HyperSnap-DX is ready to serve. Freeware with similar capabilities is available, so be sure to shop around. But HyperSnap-DX has a lot going for it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of HyperSnap 8.04.06.

"Long time user - Not so happy any more"

Pros

Many good features but

Cons

IN MY OPINION: It seems the newer versions add more bugs (not necessarily to the NEW functions, but the old too. -- really annoying: I can't get the default suffix to change permanently from .png to .jpg. And why is it .png when .jpg is the norm??? I can't get the tabs displayed at the bottom of the screen. If I copy too many screens into one file, my system freezes. I figure its a memory overrun, or whatever. Why don't they test for this problem so my system doesn't freeze up requiring a reboot. I would have. IN MY OPINION.

What's new in version 8.04.06
In version 8.04.06 the order of thumbnails in the thumbnail bar may now be re-arranged with drag and drop operation. This is important e.g. if you want to save some or all of images into one PDF file, and the order in which they are saved is important. You may now drag out one image thumb, or several of them if marked with check-marks, to Windows desktop or Explorer folders. Upon dropping the thumbnails there, the images will be saved in that folder as PNG or JPEG files. You may also drag-drop them to other targets that accept files, e.g. MS Word, email, web file upload forms etc.
