Since my last update in June, I find myself using the Microsoft Snipping Tool more often for those quick screen capture jobs. But I am still using Printkey 2000 and Timesnapper.
Here are some others …
|Name & download link||Comments|
|Bug Shooting||“Bug Shooting is a free screenshot utility that was developed for software testers who use bug tracking systems”|
|Cropper Capture||“It offers a resizable, translucent capture area that can be moved and sized freely to capture the portions that you want to grab.”|
|Greenshot||“Greenshot is a revolutionary screenshot tool optimized for productivity.”|
|HoverSnap||“HoverSnap is a a free handy snapshot tool with jpg, png, bmp and gif support.HoverSnap can take snapshots of the full screen, active window or a selected area.”|
|Jing||Recommended by Leo Laporte.|
|Lightscreen||automates the capture of screenshots.|
|Microsoft Snipping Tool for XP Tablet||For those times when you just want to “snip” part of a screen.|
|Microsoft Snipping Tool Vista||It’s included!|
|PrintKey 2000||This is what I use.
See my previous blog post about it.
|Printkey-Pro||the non-free & later version of PrintKey 2000.|
|Camtasia Studio||Perhaps the best product of all.|
|Gadwin PrintScreen Pro||As recommended by Scott Hanselman|
|SnagIt||the best known, and most widely used of the commercial products.|
|TimeSnapper||“Automatic Screenshot Journal”
I use this on my work PC to track my tasks during the day.
