A lightweight application that provides a quick and easy method of capturing desktop areas or the entire screen with just a click

editor's review



PolarShot makes it possible for you to easily take snapshots of different areas of the screen or the entire desktop. Delivered inside a lightweight package, this application does not require installation, which improves its accessibility.

Adjustable capture area

Ease of use is one of its main advantages, which alongside the simple layout of the interface and the intuitive options makes it suitable for any user. It displays a simple frame whose size is freely adjustable, offering you the possibility to enclose the area you want to capture with the help of your mouse.

The capturing options are comprised inside a simple menu attached to the frame, which also shows you the exact size of the selected area and allows you to adjust the zoom level. You can capture the entire screen with just a click or use the selection tool to appoint the desired screen section.

Supports popular output formats

Once you selected the area to capture, taking the snapshot is just a matter of pressing a button. The application prompts you to choose the location where the pictures will be saved and the output format. Some of the most common file types are supported, namely JPG, BMP, PNG, TIF, TGA and GIF.

Each time you take a new screenshot, PolarShot asks you whether you want to edit the output image or not and if your answer is yes, it automatically sends the snapshot to the default program assigned to perform such operations.

A user-friendly capturing tool worth having around

PolarShot is very easy to use and comes in handy to anyone who needs a quick and reliable screen capturing tool. Adding it some graphic editing capabilities (such as shadow or reflection effects, image watermarking options etc.) or implementing options for capturing opened windows or performing delayed actions could really add to its value.
