CNET Editors' review

Although Windows comes with a built-in screen capture utility, it's pretty bare bones; there are a lot of useful things that it can't do. Numerous software developers have stepped up to fill the gap, and among the many offerings is Capturino. It's not the most elegant screen capture program we've seen, but it's not a bad choice if you want a few more options than the Windows utility provides.

The free version of Capturino opens with a nag screen that lists all of the features that are only available in the paid edition, including automatic image uploads and hosting, the ability to create e-mails with screen captures as attachments, and the ability to save images in four different formats. We closed the nag screen and proceeded to the program's actual interface, which resembles a toolbar. There are buttons that let users capture the entire screen, a selected part of the screen, or the active window. The program also has some more unusual tools, such as the ability to refresh the capture of a previously selected area or take new captures of the same area periodically. Capturino was originally created in French, and this fact is obvious from both the text within the interface and the program's sparse Help file; both are difficult to understand at times. Overall, Capturino works well enough, but there are definitely tools out there that are easier to use and that pack more features into a totally free package.

Capturino installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal.

    "Not impressed"

    April 28, 2013  |   By Winntech

    Version: capturino 2.3

    Pros

    The application does what it says, captures the images. Has quite a few options to do so. A nice step up from the vanilla version of Windows 7 Snipping Tool.
    1. Selective screenshots by area or by screen
    2. Preview and post view of captured area

    Cons

    There are several reasons why this tool will not be a replacement for Snipping Tool.
    1. It only allows access to one window by default. In these days of dual screens, this is deplorable.
    2. The homepage after launching the tool looks like spyware
    3. This is for CNET, shame on you for trying to slip additional software in during the install.
    4. The GUI needs work. It is small, and only Semi-User Friendly.
    5. Lacks intuitiveness.

    Summary

    More work needs to be done for this tool to be used by myself. Not a bad attempt, but needs more GUI work and presentation work.
