Screen Grabber

CNET Editors' review

Though attractive and easy to use, Screen Grabber could certainly benefit from a higher degree of user customization. The program runs in the system tray and lets you take full-screen screenshots with one of two nonconfigurable hot keys. From there, you can crop the image, scribble on it freehand with a pen, or mark it up with arrows and notes. Annotations appear in appealing, semitransparent bubbles, and the program's zoom tool will help you improve your view when making edits. You can change the typeface used in notes, but you strangely cannot alter the thickness or color of lines drawn with the Pen tool. Nor can you tweak the appearance of arrows drawn with the Comment tool. The program consumes less memory than in the past, but it still eats up around 20MB when up and running. Screen Grabber best suits users who need a quick-and-dirty screenshot tool.

    "Nice interface, but a little confusing"

    January 25, 2006  |   By daviddiego

    Version: Screen Grabber 2.0

    Pros

    Very simple to install and to capture the screen. You can do everything that you need with the screenshot: crop, draw with a pen, put callouts with text, blur.

    Cons

    The interface for editing the image opens automatically after pressing PrintScreen in a window that covers the complete screen. If you have two monitors, then covers the two monitos with the screenshot in the middle, that is a half in a monitor and the other in the other monitor :-(

    One thing that I miss is the possibility of drawing circles, squares, lines... You only can do free drawing (what makes the screenshot a little unprofesional for sending to a client).

    The blur is not enough blur. You still can read the text behind it. You have to blur several times.
