Editors' Review

+

PicPick gives you the tools to take screenshots quickly and then edit them to suit a variety of purposes, all through the same convenient interface. There are quite a few options included in this program for both taking and editing screenshots, making it a good option for all kinds of users.

Pros

Screenshot options: No matter what type of screenshot you want to take, this app has you covered. Just select from a list that includes Full Screen, Window Control, Scrolling Window, Region, Fixed Region, and Freehand. And there is also a quick option for repeating the last capture.

Graphic tools: There is a complete suite of graphic editing features included in this app. You can choose from an array of tools like a Color Picker, which lets you pick a color on the screen and then use it in your image, a Magnifier, a Pixel Ruler, a WhiteBoard, and more to create the perfect shot to convey your message.

Cons

Awkward access: The initial interface you see when you open the app is attractive and accessible. But once you've made a selection from there, it's tough to get back to. If you access the program later from the System Tray, you'll have to go through several menus to get back to the main interface, which seems overly complicated.

Bottom Line

PicPick is a excellent option if you often use screenshots in your work for just about any purpose. Once you get the hang of accessing the parts of the program you want and use most, it's a convenient and quick solution. You can try it for free, and the full version costs $21.99.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PicPick 3.4.1.

"I wanted something to capture a scrolling window"

June 06, 2015  |  By jerggg

2015-06-06 09:26:36  |  By jerggg

 |  Version: PicPick 4.0.5

Pros

It used to work for capturing scrolling windows

Cons

It used to work for capturing scrolling windows

Summary

Apparently this breaks with every browser (Firefox) upgrade, all I wanted it for was to capture scrolling windows when I needed it to, and now it doesn't work no matter what I do, so I will have to find a browser-specific app to do that

"Excellent all in one app"

September 21, 2014  |  By DaDreamWizard

2014-09-21 11:43:28  |  By DaDreamWizard

 |  Version: PicPick 3.4.1

Pros

For an all in one lightweight app it's actually really awesome... I just dumped a bunch of mini apps and replaced with just this one.

Cons

none whatsoever. absolutely NO CONS

Furthermore, there is ZERO malware from version 3.41 install. Mawarebytes found zero on manual scan and when installing. Read suggestion below in summary if your one of the unfortunate malware magnets.

Summary

Don't like repeating, but anything that's lightweight (can be made portable actually by zipping up the programs directory (personal pref are in ini file elsewhere).

To all you people with issues. Go to the authors site, go to his "download" page and download the "home" version. It still downloads from cnet but it's the ONLY link he can guarantee the files not been tampered with. He explains it clearly. And that's another plus, it should be obvious it's an author that listens.

Good app. And I'm not one that dumps mini and 1 purpose apps that I've been using forever. But that has changed.

"Free Alt to SnagIt / Malware "Conduit Search" Bundled"

July 10, 2014  |  By Peter-II

2014-07-10 19:50:42  |  By Peter-II

 |  Version: PicPick 3.3.4

Pros

? Excellent basic screen capture program
? Simple to use
? Allows for Hot Key Assignment

Cons

? Not nearly as feature-rich as SnagIt (I use it daily)
? Comes bundled with "Conduit Search" and "V-Bates" While I'm not familiar with V-Bates, Conduit Search is a horrendous browser hijacker that is difficult to get rid of (I believe we had to completely uninstall IE & Firefox just to get rid of it).

Summary

If you choose to install the program click on the faded "Decline" buttons when prompted to install "Conduit Search" and "V-Bates" (Beware that this option is still available with PicPick v3.3.4, but could be removed with future versions of the program.). If you fail to do that, you'll have a devil of a time removing "Conduit Search" from your computer.

"CNET is losing my confidence"

July 07, 2014  |  By rderuiter

2014-07-07 22:41:30  |  By rderuiter

 |  Version: PicPick 3.3.4

Pros

Great screen capture

Cons

Though CNET says their programs are virus-free. Malware bytes found 3 (or was it 4) PUP's installs with this program. CNET: drop this program from your offerings, or require PicPick to remove the PUPs programs from installing.

Summary

This program tried to install Softomate (a malware toolbar addin), InstallMonetizer (ad-ware, as far as I can tell), and SearchProtect (a browser homepage hijacker).

I'll be looking to install from other sites, if CNET can't do a better job of protecting its users.

"Just had to stop using it"

June 30, 2014  |  By howardferns

2014-06-30 10:02:19  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: PicPick 3.3.4

Pros

Such a feature rich program that was so simple and fuss-free to use for taking and annotating screenshots..

Cons

The program sometimes wouldn't open, with a message 'Failed to load resource file. Error 00001'. Then my only solution was to uninstall and reinstall it, but doing that last week, direct from the publisher's site, Avast Free detected a virus.

Summary

After a great deal of searching for something equivalent, I found iPhotoDraw, a free annotation program that also includes screen capture, although this is not mentioned in its features. Goodbye PicPick!

"Contains "monetizer" malware"

June 26, 2014  |  By truthblade

2014-06-26 22:43:10  |  By truthblade

 |  Version: PicPick 3.3.3

Pros

Being that the latest version contains the "monetizer" malware, that alone negates any pros this software might have.

Cons

The most recent version (as of 6/27/14) was detected by my security program to contain the "monetizer" malware as I was attempting to install it, so I aborted the install. So apparently I'm not going to be installing this latest version. And if whoever creates Picpick doesn't stop his monkey business, I won't be using his software anymore, period.

"It works but...."

May 22, 2014  |  By hruopp

2014-05-22 09:32:38  |  By hruopp

 |  Version: PicPick 3.3.3

Pros

There is none

Cons

If you buy the commercial version and for some reason you loose your disk and can't register after installing everything again and you get a VMPAL0007 error, you can forget to write to them asking for support: They do not answer.

I'm just gonna buy a decent software from someone else specially someone that respect customers and offer a decent support.

"Unforgivable browser hijacking"

May 16, 2014  |  By kridder2

2014-05-16 11:55:04  |  By kridder2

 |  Version: PicPick 3.3.3

Pros

I had it and used it occasionally, hoping to phase out my old Faststone Capture program that had gone all shaky of late.

Cons

I'll never know if the newer version works, because I realized as soon as I'd downloaded it that it had brought a browser hijacker along for the ride (absolutely no notification of this during the download process, either)

Summary

Don't use, unless you feel like uninstalling your browsers and wiping clean your saved user data therein.
