Screen Shot is a small Windows application whose purpose is to help you take screenshots so you can capture essential parts from your projects.
You are welcomed by a small panel that embeds several configuration settings to tinker with. The program lets you choose the desired capturing mode, open up the folder that stores the snapshots, close the application, access the configuration settings, and view the Help panel.
Different capturing modes and exporting options
Screen Shot gives you the possibility to take screenshots in a full screen mode, capture objects (e.g. window, control, windows shortcut menu), or manually select the area with the aid of a rectangle. The images can be exported to PNG, JPEG, BMP, GIF, or TIFF file format.
The tool lets you pick the destination folder, enable or disable the small window from where you can access the program’s features, run the utility at Windows startup, and automatically receive notifications if updates are available.
When it comes to image capturing settings, you are can make the application save the screenshot to a file or copy it to the clipboard, so you can easily paste it into other third-party programs, save the image manually or automatically, play sound notifications, and include the mouse cursor.
Additionally, you can pick the default output format for the automatic mode, alter the JPG quality, and assign hotkeys for a better control over the entire process.
All in all, Screen Shot proves to be an easy-to-use application that comes bundled with basic features for helping you take snapshots. On the downside, you cannot apply watermarks and special effects, embed custom text messages, and perform editing operations (e.g. crop, inset rectangles, arrows, and ellipses).
