If you need to create a tutorial, capture a special Web moment, select and save a specific area of the desktop, SnapShot meets your needs successfully. It can also grab a beautiful image or an interesting text from the Internet when Save Image As and Copy/ Paste are not made available.
SnapShot is a freeware utility designed to capture the computer screen and save it as JPG, PNG or other commonly used image formats. With efficiency in mind, this software saves you from taking the long journey with Print Screen – Paint – Edit – Paste. Lightweight and user friendly, this app runs from the System Tray. Its functions can be activated by pressing configurable hotkeys. When prompted, SnapShot automatically grabs screen image and saves it for later use.
You have the option to decide whether to capture the full screen (Ctrl + Shift + F), the active window (Ctrl + W), or a rectangular area (Ctrl + R). From the menu, users can specify the output destination, edit captures with the favorite software, send them to a friend via built-in e-mail utility, and upload them via FTP engine.
SnapShot has a simple interface: all available functions are one key or click away. There are no compatibility issues because this application runs on all Windows distributions.
Preferences Tab lets you establish a file name prefix for automated image capturing. JPEG quality bar is best when you want optimized images.
For those who want to take screenshots from menus, dropdown-lists or pop-ups, SnapShot comes in handy with a shortcut procedure. All you need to do is select the desired menu, dropdown-list or pop-up, hold CTRL + R, slowly move the mouse to the edge until the cross pointer appears and finally draw a rectangle around the area you want to be saved.
If you are not familiar with keyboard shortcuts, simply capture the full screen, open SnapShot from System Tray, and crop the part of the image you need. There is also an option to include or hide mouse pointer.
