Portable ScreenHunter Plus
Portable ScreenHunter Plus is a small software application whose purpose is to help you take screenshots, check out the images with a built-in viewer, as well as make use of a color picker.
The advantages of being portable
Since this is the portable version of the program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to take snapshots on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
Clean feature lineup
You are welcomed by a well-organized set of features that allows you to configure the area that you want to capture, set up the saving options, enable several advanced parameters, as well as view and open images, and work with the color picker.
Portable ScreenHunter Plus gives you the possibility to take screenshots in a full screen mode or capture rectangular area, object/window, active window, DirectX/screen saver, movie, or non-rectangular area (freehand, ellipse, round rectangle, or polygon).
What’s more, you can use a single hotkey for capturing the desired area of the screen or assign a specific keyboard shortcut to each mode, include the mouse pointer, make the windows transparent, activate a timer, as well as make the app automatically take screenshots at a user-defined time.
A smart feature included in the package enables you to embed date, time, computer name, username, and user-defined message on the photo, pick the text position, and alter the text in terms of font, font style, size, and color.
Portable ScreenHunter Plus enables you to copy the captured image to the built-in viewer and clipboard, print or send it via email, as well as save it to a file on your computer. Plus, you can choose the output format, namely GIF, BMP, JPG, PNG, or TIF, select the saving directory, as well as opt for an automatic or fixed file naming mode.
The tool lets you hide the main window at startup, show or hide tips, play a sound notification at the end of the task, adjust the zoom level, reveal the viewer after capturing photos, keep only the last 30 images in the viewer, and stop the auto-capturing process when errors occur.
Built-in viewer and color picker
The program allows you to upload images in the viewer using the built-in browse button or drag-and-drop support. It works with the following file formats: BMP, JPG, DIB, WMF, ICO, and others, and lets you copy the pictures to the clipboard, send them via email, or convert them to one of the supported file formats.
Additionally, you are allowed to pick a color from the screen and view the RGB values, hue, saturation, brightness, as well as hex data.
All in all, Portable ScreenHunter Plus comes bundled with settings that are suitable for rookies and professionals alike. However, several advanced features are missing from the package, namely image watermark and editing operations (e.g. crop, insert arrows, rectangles, ellipses or freehand drawings).
