Simple and effective screen capturing tool that allows you to grab your desktop, window or any part of the screen and save it as a BMP or JPG
The interface of the program is plain and simple to work with. So, SnapShot allows you to capture the full screen, active window or rectangle (by making a mouse selection).
In addition, you can include the mouse cursor, copy image to clipboard, send it to the image editor, Paint or via email, upload the picture via FTP and enable automatic exit.
In the "Preferences" area you can enable SnapShot to minimize to system tray on startup and to keep it minimized after capturing, play a sound after capture and to stay on top of other processes.
But you can also adjust the JPEG quality, specify the default file type for attachments and uploads, set the delay time and choose the color of the rectangle box (when making the selection), and more.
The simple-to-use program runs on a very low amount of system resources, includes a well-written help file in a plain text document, supports several keyboard shortcuts, has a good response time and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests. However, SnapShot doesn't offer any extraordinary features. We mainly recommend it to novices.
