Gadwin PrintScreen 5.4.2
Unobtrusive and clear-cut GUI
After going through a pretty simple and quick installation process, the program will place itself in the system tray. This feature makes it quite non-obtrusive and enables you to take the app out of pictures with ease. However, you should know you can change this option from the "Properties" window.
The user interface is clean and easy to navigate through, as it does not come packed with many buttons, menus and panels. This means that both power and novice users can learn how to handle Gadwin PrintScreen with ease.
Set up hotkeys and preview results
At first launch, it is possible to select the keyboard shortcut which will activate the capturing sequence, the default being the "Print Screen" key.
In addition to that, you can enable the initial delay to be taken at a certain time before capture, hide the icon when capturing, preview the captured pictures and disable Gadwin PrintScreen from automatically running at system startup.
Types of snapshots and tweaking a few settings
You can select the captured area (current window, client window, full screen, rectangular area) and disable the option to capture the mouse cursor.
Aside from that, you can set Gadwin PrintScreen to copy the captured area to the Clipboard, printer or file, ask for the file name after capturing, automatically rename items, as well as select the output destination.
Extensions supported and other settings you can adjust
It is possible to choose the format for the output photo (BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF), resize the captured screenshot and configure options (e.g. grayscale, image shadow, stamp).
Once you take a snapshot, a window pops up in which you can preview the image, change its destination, continue or cancel output, as well as adjust the zoom level.
A final assessment
The program uses a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a comprehensive Help file with snapshots and works smoothly. All in all, Gadwin PrintScreen is an excellent tool for taking snapshots and we highly recommend it to all users.
