TakeScreen 2.0

Unobtrusive and portable program that allows you to take screenshots by capturing the entire desktop or only the desired area, and apply editing operations
TakeScreen is a small software application whose purpose is to help you take screenshots for capturing essential parts from your projects and apply editing operations.

Unobtrusive running mode

It runs quietly in the system tray without interfering with your work. In order to access the program’s features, you are required to perform a right-click mouse operation on its icon from the system tray.

Taking snapshots

TakeScreen lets you take screenshots by capturing the entire desktop or a user-defined region and enable the automatic saving mode by specifying the directory, entering the filename, and picking the desired output format, such as PNG, JPG, BMP, GIF, or TIFF file format.

What’s more, you can adjust the opacity and quality of the images, automatically copy photos to the clipboard, pick the unit of measurement (e.g. pixels, centimeters, inches), make the tool remain on top of other windows, show popup notifications, enable or disable global hotkeys, as well as open the snapshot or edit it at the end of the task.

Editing operations

TakeScreen gives you the possibility to make use of editing tools in order to alter the taken photos. Additionally, you may upload a custom image from your computer and edit it, provided that the file format is PNG, JPG, BMP, GIF, or TIFF. The edited photo can be exported to one of the aforementioned file formats.

You are allowed to make use of a pencil in order to draw freehand designs, embed text messages, which can customized in terms of font and size, insert lines, circles and rectangles, as well as change the color of objects. 

Bottom line

All in all, TakeScreen comes packed with some handy features for helping you take snapshots. On the downside, it doesn’t allow you to use custom hotkeys, upload images to FTP servers, embed photo watermarks, and capture applications and objects.
