Screenshot Saver is a lightweight application that can help you take screenshots of your current desktop in the easiest way possible.
It boasts a simplistic interface that can be easily handled even by less experienced users. The application provides two different modes for carrying out such a task, as you can manually take multiple screenshots, or enable the automatic mode. When activated, this latter mode allows users to take a snapshot by hitting the “Print Screen” key on the keyboard.
The program also keeps a log with the actions performed and possible errors, but the log cannot be exported to a file. You are allowed to preview the images that you have taken, in the main window of the app.
As a major drawback, the program is only able to copy the images to the Clipboard, so it doesn’t offer users the possibility to save them to file.
Since it’s only able to capture the entire screen, you could use Screenshot Saver with a separate photo editor to quickly crop a specific area of the screenshot.
It cannot be considered the most powerful tool in its category, as it lacks many advanced features and configurable parameters. We would have liked to see support for editing tools, various file formats (e.g. JPG, GIF, PNG), and the possibility to choose the area of your screen to be saved.
However, Screenshot Saver remains light on the system resources, and no errors showed up during our testing. It surely appeals to beginners who need to take multiple snapshots without having to configure dedicated parameters.
