Editors' reviewWhether documenting a computer problem or a favorite Web site, many computer users will someday need to capture exactly what's on their computer screen. This program isn't the most powerful screenshot tool, but it offers almost everything an average user will need in a easy-to-use interface. The software allows users to save an image of the full screen, an active window, or any rectangular area as a graphics file. However, it can't take pictures of menus or documents that require scrolling. It offers editing features including cropping, highlighting, blurring, and resizing, but lacks annotation components such as text balloons or arrows. The interface makes it easy to manage several screenshots at once. All told, we feel comfortable recommending Screenshot Captor as one of the best freeware tools in its category.
Screenshot Captor is designed for grabbing lots of screenshots with minimal intervention. It has multimonitor support and includes a full image explorer with full shell functionality and unsurpassed integration with external tools like graphic editors or water markers. Screenshot Captor also supports unique effects not seen in other capture tools, including the ability to automatically locate and enhance the active window.
What's new in this version:
Version 4.5 adds new feature automatic or on-demand uploading of screenshots to image hosting services.
