Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Gadwin PrintScreen
Gadwin PrintScreen is an application that helps you take snapshots in several methods. Once you have finished installing it, the program will place itself in the system tray. You can change preferences from the "Properties" window.
The user interface is clean and easy to navigate through. You can select the keyboard shortcut which will activate the capturing sequence (with the default being the "PrintScreen" key).
Plus, you can enable the initial delay to be taken at a certain time before capture, hide the icon when capturing, preview the captured image and disable Gadwin PrintScreen from automatically running at system startup.
Furthermore, you can select the captured area (current window, client window, full screen, rectangular area) and disable the option to capture the mouse cursor.
Additionally, you can set Gadwin PrintScreen to copy the captured area to clipboard, printer or file, ask for the file name after capturing, automatically rename files, as well as select the output destination.
Moreover, you can choose the format for the output image (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.
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.
Gadwin PrintScreen description
Here are some key features of "Gadwin PrintScreen":
On most Windows computers a full screen of data can be put on the clipboard by pressing the PrintScreen key. This sends whatever you see on screen to the clipboard, which you must then edit in a different graphics program to cut to the right size and image format. Here are some other reasons not to use the prefabricated PrintScreen function of Windows:
· Full screen of data can be put only on the clipboard.
· It is either difficult or impossible to capture some elements of a Windows screen, such as different shaped cursors.
· You spend too much time making image captures
· 5 MB hard disk space
