PicPick

CNET Editors' review

If you do any kind of digital art or design, we can't think of a reason you wouldn't want to have PicPick as your sidekick. This handy set of tools can handle many small yet important design-related tasks without the hassle of opening a full-blown design program.

PicPick has an attractive, no-nonsense interface that lists all of its features up front. And what a list it is; PicPick's capabilities include a variety of screen capture options, a color picker, a color palette, a magnifier, a pixel ruler, a crosshair, a protractor, and a whiteboard. The program also comes with a basic image editor that can handle tasks such as cropping, resizing, and rotating, as well as a applying a handful of special effects. PicPick's features aren't especially unique, but the fact that they're all bundled together in such a sleek, easy-to-access package makes this program a must-have. We were especially fond of the whiteboard feature, which lets users draw, marker-style, on their existing desktop or on a blank canvas. The options for screen captures are also impressive; users can select full-screen captures, particular windows or regions, fixed regions, freehand areas, and even scrolling windows. The program comes with an online Help file, but most users probably won't need to consult it, as the program's tools are all quite straightforward. Overall, we were impressed PicPick's usefulness and attractiveness, and we recommend it highly.

PicPick installs and uninstalls without issues.

    "Window Scroll doesn't work"

    April 8, 2014  |   By truthblade

    Version: PicPick 3.3.2

    Pros

    This is a very good photo capture and manipulation program.

    Cons

    If you want to capture an image that is larger than your browser screen that must be scrolled down to fully view, Picpick can NOT do this, no matter how hard you try.

    Picpick's makers DO have a feature called "Window Scrolling" that says it's supposed to do it, but it doesn't. Not on the Windows 7 OR 8 systems I'm running it on, and not even when I follow several variations of the "easy to use" instructions TO THE LETTER.

    Summary

    If you need a screen capture tool that can capture overly large browser images that can only be viewed by scrolling up the page, PicPick CANNOT capture them, despite the programmer's assurances to the contrary. You will have to look elsewhere for a different program to do that.

    "Contains Malware"

    April 3, 2014  |   By rderuiter

    Version: PicPick 3.3.2

    Pros

    Great Screen Capture Utility.

    Cons

    Contains Malware (04-03-14)

    Summary

    Avast reported two malware files that attempted to install with this version of PicPick: networks_5171[1].exe and something called Installmanager.exe. Both containg Win32:Adware-gen[Adw]. Thankfully Avast caught both of them and let the installation continue.

    CNet is supposed to ensure that files on its servers are virus free. This one appears to be known bad, and is reported at multiple internet sites.

    "Stay away from this download"

    March 30, 2014  |   By MelaEckenfels

    Version: PicPick 3.3.2

    Pros

    One of the few good windows screenshot tools.

    Cons

    It took me about an hour to remove the trojan that came with the update. A very nasty kind of malware and in the end I had to rebuild even my browsers navigation bar to the state prior to updating picpick.

    Summary

    I deinstalled picpick, I never will use again and I never will consider buying the tool.
    And you shouldn't either.

    The tool is created by a company with no respect for the users.
    I you can't afford a free version, than don't provide one with nasty malware aboard.
