A user-friendly program that comprises several handy features for helping you create presentations or provide explanations by taking multiple screenshots and personalizing them with text, arrows, and geometrical figures
StepShot is a professional software application whose purpose is to help you take screenshots and apply various editing operations for personalizing the images. You can capture the desired area of your desktop and insert notes and arrows for highlighting main ideas or important tasks from your project.

Intuitive layout

Although it comes bundled with many dedicated parameters, you are welcomed by a well-organized set of functions. There is also support for a built-in help manual which provides information about the capturing process.

Built-in modes for capturing the screen

StepShot gives you the possibility to take photos in a full screen mode, and capture the active window or fixed area of the desktop.

A great feature bundled in this tool enables you to take multiple snapshots using the built-in recording mode. You can stop the recoding mode with just one click or using predefined hotkeys, and configure several handy parameters directly from the hovering window. All screenshots are automatically saved in the primary panel.

What’s more, you can provide a title and description for each snapshot, use annotation tools for inserting rectangles, ellipses, lines, arrows, and curves, embed text messages, which can be customized in terms of font, font style, color, and alignment, crop images, as well as highlight or blur the desired area.

Additional editing operations empower you to fill in areas with different colors, insert shadows, and bring objects to the front or send them to the back.

Exporting and configuration options

StepShot enables you to export the screenshots to different file formats, such as DOC, DITA, XML, HTML, PDF, or PNG.

There are several parameters built specifically for helping you play sound notifications when taking a snapshot, reassign hotkeys, highlight the mouse cursor, blur extended edges, as well as specify the delaying time.

An overall efficient tool

All in all, StepShot comes bundled with several handy features for helping you create presentations or provide explanations by taking multiple screenshots and personalizing them with text, arrows, and geometrical figures.
