EasyCapture - screenshots with great editing options

Notes from ClifNotes, Nov 2007, permalink Screen Capture


CC recommends this free screen capture tool. I've tried it and I agree that it's one of the front runners for being the best free screen capture tools. Mostly it's the same old stuff, but once you have a capture in it's editor, the fun is just starting. It has a great selection of image editing options and even includes several image filters if you want to get really weird.


It also includes a tabs in it's editor so you can take several screenshots in a row and then go back to edit them when you get time.


Here's what CC says:

Better than faststone screen capture. More options and easier to use. It has multipage capture and siggies included.


PS. The insight point on the screen is free but has a very steep learning curve.


I agree with the more features, but I don't think it's easier to use. My only complaint would be that it doesn't have an "always on top" floating toolbar. I'm used to using that feature in FS Capture, but if I can remember the keyboard shortcuts, I might switch to this tool.


Those of you now using the LiteWare version Gadwin Print Screen may want to give EasyCapture a very close look. You may decide to say bye bye to Gadwin.


Here's a tip:

I found out that EasyCapture will run just fine on a flash thumb-drive. Just copy the program folder over to it and launch the EasyCapture.EXE file when you want to run it. I moved a copy of it to my Portable folder on my C: drive and uninstalled it by using the Add/Remove. It's still works fine.
