Windows Screen Capture Tool Portable
Windows Screen Capture Portable is a software utility which can be used in order to aid individuals in taking screenshots of any element on their desktop, and save the results.
The upside of a portable app
This is the portable edition of Windows Screen Capture, which means that you can skip the installation process. As a result, unlike installers, it is not going to add any new items to the Windows registry and hard drive without your approval and it is not going to leave any kind of traces behind.
Another aspect worth mentioning is that if you place the program files to an external data drive, you make it possible to run Windows Screen Capture Portable on any computer you come in contact with, by simply clicking the EXE.
Edit pictures, insert watermarks and save everything to the HDD
This tool enables you to take screenshots of a specified web page or opened window, a selected area or the entire screen. In addition to that, you should know it is possible to use a few editing options, such as rotating or flipping the resulted pictures, as well apply a few effects (e.g. sharpen, diffuse, smooth etc.).
Text watermarks can be added at a specified location, with custom fonts and colors, while you can also preview that last screen capture taken in the main window. It is possible to save images using a JPG, BMP or PNG file format, while you should know that almost all actions have been assigned keyboard shortcuts, which you can change with just a few clicks.
