Screenpresso

Download.com Staff Oct 2, 2013

LearnPulse's Screenpresso comes in two versions, free and paid, but the freeware still offers more than the typical screen capture tool, free or not. It captures HD video as well as still images, and its built-in editor can stitch images together to capture scrolling action. A portable version is included, too. Screenpresso's hot keys and system tray menu make it as easy to use as most screen capture tools (such as the Snipping Tool in Windows) and easier than many -- thanks, in part, to its stylish, intuitive tools and PDF-based User Manual.

Screenpresso's download offered fully-installed and portable versions. We chose the installed version. Like most screen capture tools, Screenpresso stays in the background, but a widget-like panel called the "Workspace" appears when needed or when you right-click Screenpresso's system tray icon (left-clicking opens the Main Menu). The Workspace displays screen capture thumbnails, and its toolbar let us capture, edit, and publish (post online) our images and clips. We could drag and drop files to and from the history panel to editing tools, e-mail clients, and other programs, too.

But a screen capture tool earns its place in action, and Screenpresso doesn't disappoint. Capturing your screen is as easy as pressing the "Print Screen" key. Similar hot keys activate HD video and an attractive screenshot region tool with crosshairs. The system tray menu has a full set of controls and also accesses a tabbed preferences sheet for changing hot keys and many other options. The HD video screenshots are nice, though not optimized for movies, as Screenpresso points out. The freeware only captures sound from your microphone, but that's enough for making training videos, documentation, and similar applications. If you're still using the Snipping Tool or similar wares, then you should try Screenpresso.
