Editors' review

Screen-capture utilities come in a lot of different flavors; some are so basic that they're barely useful, while others are jam-packed with complex features. SnapShot is a program that doesn't go to either extreme. It has plenty of useful tools and options, but it's still simple enough to master within a minute or two.

The program's interface is plain, with a viewing area in which you can see your most recent screen capture and a few menus across the top that give you access to the program's settings. SnapShot uses hot keys to let you capture the entire screen, the active window, or a specific area of the screen that you can select with the mouse. Once the image is loaded in SnapShot, you can copy it to the clipboard, send it to Paint or an image editor, e-mail the image, or upload it using FTP. There are plenty of ways to customize SnapShot's behavior: you can specify the default image editor, have the program hide its taskbar button, and automatically save captured images to a specific directory. You can also select JPEG quality and select from seven different file types for saving or sending images. The program doesn't have a Help file per se, but it does come with a ReadMe file that that contains basic notes about its usage. Overall, we found SnapShot to be easy to work with and we were quite happy with its performance. Anyone seeking a simple screen-capture utility should give it a try.

SnapShot comes as a ZIP file but installs and uninstalls without issues.

    "Great product for capturing specific pieces of data"

    September 23, 2013   |   By sierra195

    Version: SnapShot 1.0.6

    Pros

    Capture allows user to capture either full screen, only the active window or to highlight a specific rectangular area. These options are a lot better than traditional "Print Screen". The rectangle capture is very useful for piecing together summaries of data (such as user or trouble shooting guides from web sites. The copied image can be sent to the clip board,"image editor" "paint", email or "ftp".

    Cons

    User must remember to select the "edit" feature from the drop down menu to choose the use of the data. I would be nice to be offered that selection automatically after the data capture is complete. The product periodically freezes up which is easily worked around with the Task Manager.

    Summary

    This product does everything that I expect a "snap shot" program to offer. Great product!!
