Although the design sometimes gets in the way of functionality, SPX Instant Screen Capture offers decent features for capturing, editing, and annotating screenshots. SPX Instant Screen Capture comes bundled with SPX Graphics Editor and SPX Studio for modifying and annotating screenshots, respectively. You activate the screen-capture utility using hot keys: Ctrl Shift F1 for freehand capture, Ctrl Shift F2 for rectangle, and Ctrl Shift F3 for windows, including full-screen. In the Options menu, you can choose whether to capture scrolling windows and where to send screenshots.

You can e-mail, fax, print, and send images via ICQ, IM, or FTP, though we'd prefer the mail option for sending images to our default mail client rather than to Outlook Express. Also, though we like each of the three tools, breaking their functions out into distinct applications complicates the work flow unnecessarily if you need to both annotate and edit. SPX Instant Screen Capture suits people who frequently report errors to support-desk specialists or who need to integrate screenshots into PowerPoint slides.

Developer's Description

Powerful, easy to learn, completely intuitive and very popular screen capture program. Highly suitable for both technical and non technical users. Capture anything from your monitor(s), annotate, and send to any pre-set destination. Zoom for better precision by rotating the mouse wheel while dragging with the mouse around the selected area. Once captured, the screenshot can be sent directly to clipboard, file, e-mail, internet(ftp), printer or another program (for example a graphic editor). To nicely annotate your screen capture before sending it to others, send it to SPX Annotation Editor first. On the canvas you can add text, shapes, arrows and number sequences. Confidential information may be blurred with the tool available for this purpose. When you're happy with your work you can send it - right from the annotation editor - to any destination. TIP: When you send a screenshot to your website using FTP, SPX will send you back the full link (URL) to the screen shot and places it in the clipboard. This way, instead of all the trouble sending images by e-mail, you e-mail a link : the recipient will click the link and open the image.
