capturino

Editors' Review

by   / August 29, 2011

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.
