Editors' Review

LearnPulse's Screenpresso comes in two versions, free and paid, but the freeware still offers more than the typical screen capture tool, free or not. It captures HD video as well as still images, and its built-in editor can stitch images together to capture scrolling action. A portable version is included, too. Screenpresso's hot keys and system tray menu make it as easy to use as most screen capture tools (such as the Snipping Tool in Windows) and easier than many -- thanks, in part, to its stylish, intuitive tools and PDF-based User Manual.

Screenpresso's download offered fully-installed and portable versions. We chose the installed version. Like most screen capture tools, Screenpresso stays in the background, but a widget-like panel called the "Workspace" appears when needed or when you right-click Screenpresso's system tray icon (left-clicking opens the Main Menu). The Workspace displays screen capture thumbnails, and its toolbar let us capture, edit, and publish (post online) our images and clips. We could drag and drop files to and from the history panel to editing tools, e-mail clients, and other programs, too.

But a screen capture tool earns its place in action, and Screenpresso doesn't disappoint. Capturing your screen is as easy as pressing the "Print Screen" key. Similar hot keys activate HD video and an attractive screenshot region tool with crosshairs. The system tray menu has a full set of controls and also accesses a tabbed preferences sheet for changing hot keys and many other options. The HD video screenshots are nice, though not optimized for movies, as Screenpresso points out. The freeware only captures sound from your microphone, but that's enough for making training videos, documentation, and similar applications. If you're still using the Snipping Tool or similar wares, then you should try Screenpresso.

"Not good for recording video"

July 03, 2014  |  By MSLD

 |  Version: Screenpresso 1.5.1

Pros

Nice interface, easy to navigate
Records sound

Cons

Video recordings are choppy and laggy
Free version requires you to be connected to the internet

Summary

I got this software to make some screen recordings of some visuals I am making for a project in a program that doesn't have video output capability. I have a dedicated computer which runs special, show critical programs, and I don't like to connect it to the internet because I have to turn off the firewall for the applications to interact with one another and I fear the system will be compromised. Because the free version doesn't allow you to use it without being connected to the internet, I (unfortunately) purchased the program without trying out the free version first.
Although the website advertises that it will "capture HD video" and "Record your screen in video," when you open the box to record, a little window pops up to tell you that Screenpresso is optimized for desktop recording, not videos.
It records natively in it's own codec (SPV1) and then requires you to download a converter (FFMPEG) which turns the file into an MP4.
It also gives you the option of using several other system codecs.
In my experience, every one of them was choppy and laggy, regardless of frame rate settings, etc.
So, I can't say whether this is a good tool to show a simple desktop tutorial or make a screencast, but if you want to record your screen for a video game, a visualizer, or anything movie-like or movement intensive, this might not be the program you are looking for.

"Simplest, yet strongest screen capture allows easy use"

February 17, 2014  |  By fenixpro

 |  Version: Screenpresso 1.4.5.2

Pros

fast, easy, intuitive, lot's of features - but not complicated to use. go to screen capture

Cons

none so far

Summary

I only use the free version of this software as my screencapture needs aren't great, but I have been using it for 2+ years.

Screenpresso is easy to use and intuitive and unlike a lot of other sreencapture software out there, doesn't require that you spend a ton of time learning how to use it.

Somehow recently, of the functions in the settings was changed so I always had a blank screen when I took a picture. This wasn't cool and I tried to fix it but to no avail. I started looking around at other free screen capture software, thinking that the easiest thing to do would be to find another free kind. After too much time searching and testing, it was obvious that nothing is as good and easy as Screenpresso. Then it dawned on me to contact them via twitter (@screenpresso). I did this and told them my problems. Within an hour we had communicated via email and fixed my problem and now I'm back and happily using Screenpresso!!

"Light, fast and beautifull"

June 22, 2010  |  By zolof637

 |  Version: Screenpresso 1.1

Pros

No need to install. Provide just the necessary features, not more.
Lovely software available for free.

Cons

Not available for MAC and Linux

Summary

I configured it to start automatically with Windows. I use it in my day to day work. I can capture a window or a region of the screen as necessary. I can also capture a scrollable window to get one big picture of the full window.
I like the built in editor and the available effects.
