Because it lacked any kind of real help feature, our first impression of this free utility was not a good one. But after we played around with it for a few minutes, it proved to be a decent screen capture tool.
Once activated, ScreenParts introduced a transparent window to our desktop. We found that we could easily resize the window by dragging and dropping the corners, but it wasn't quite clear where to go from there. A right-click revealed a menu that contained options for resizing the window, resetting the capture counter, and configuring the capture timer. In Settings, you can choose the capture window's background, foreground, and border colors; a feature that is solely for aesthetic purposes and doesn't improve functionality. We were also able to choose the destination and image formats for screen captures, a nice touch, especially for a freeware tool. The program doesn't really tell you how to take a picture, but through trial and error we found you just had to double-click the window. A new window quickly popped up to enter "save as" information. Sure enough, our screen capture appeared in our designated spot.
Even without a Help file, novices should find ScreenParts easy to use. If you're looking for a quick way to take basic screenshots, this tool has more options than Print Screen and it doesn't cost you anything.
ScreenParts is a screenshot application that let you capture areas of your screen, to the Windows clipboard or to an image file. You can select specific parts of the screen, which will be cropped out, or you can capture all available screens at once. It captures exactly what you see, including layered, opaque, transparent windows, media players etc. It also supports output to several different file formats.
Some of the features: Customizable borderless capture form. Option to output the capture to clipboard and/or image file. Pre-defined image names or an option to always specify filenames. Capture counter All required files in one single directory, making it suitable for a memory stick. Option to automatically start with windows, running silently in the notification tray. Global hotkey support, making it accessible with a single key-combination even if you are working in another application. Version 2 includes unspecified updates.
