    "Not good for recording video"

    July 3, 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!!

    "Program for capturing screen"

    February 6, 2011  |   By capitanflorius

    Version: Screenpresso 1.2.2

    Pros

    We can choose if install or not. It goes without need of installing even.
    Share images to any destinations (Facebook, Twitter, FTP, e-mail, ...).
    It save automatically and we can choose how many screenshot keep in memory.

    Cons

    Frequently appears pop-up asking you to buy the paid version.
    The program is also designed to record video screens but unfortunately this feature is limited to a few seconds. To be able to have this option completly it needs to pay version fee.

    Summary

    The software work fine and it's recommandable for downloading and using it.

    "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.
