Screen Capture / Print Screen With Handy Software

FastStone Capture is a powerful, lightweight, yet full-featured screen capture tool that allows you to easily capture and annotate anything on the screen including windows, objects, menus, full screen, rectangular/freehand regions and even scrolling windows/web pages. You can choose to send captures to editor, file, clipboard, printer, email, Word/PowerPoint document or upload them to your website. Editing tools include annotating (texts, arrowed lines, and highlights), resizing, cropping, sharpening, watermarking, applying edge effects and many more. It also allows you to record screen activities and sound into highly compressed video files. Other features include global hotkeys, automatic filename generation, and support for external editors, a colour picker, a screen magnifier and a screen ruler.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback. Actually the previous version of FastStone Screen Capture was free. Now they have discontinued it but we have uploaded it to our server for everyone to download it for free. Please see the article again where the download link has been given at the end of the article.

    Why thank you! It’s like snag-it only free and no clutter. It works pretty well. 🙂
