Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This fast, handy, versatile screen image capture tool shines with nary a flaw. HardCopy Pro's tabbed dialog box interface isn't as flashy or friendly as similar programs, but novice-level users won't be overwhelmed by choices. The program defaults to using the PrintScreen key, but you can easily change it to any key combination. Capture options are quickly set to automatically name and save images or even capture images every select number of minutes.

HardCopy Pro's versatility extends past its capture and save options. With a single key you can send captured images to a select application. You also can just as easily set the program to create screen printouts. Capture options go beyond the usual active window. You can preset the program to capture a select rectangle, any window, the full screen, or the window under the mouse cursor. You're forced to preset your selection, though, as you can't choose an option after invoking capture.

Properly setting options will make HardCopy Pro one of the easiest to use capture utilities we've found. Its flexibility extends to automatic color mode conversions to any of seven depth modes. No matter your skill set you'll find this program easy to operate and flexible enough for everyday use.

Developer's Description

HardCopy Pro is a screen capture tool. It can capture rectangular screen areas and whole windows. The captured images can be cropped very easily and the color depth can be changed to any desired value from monochrome to true color.
