FastStone Capture - captures glowing reviews

review by Carlo at SpaghettiTech, Mar 2006, updated Sept 2006, permalink



FS Capture is no longer freeware at the author's site.

A link to the last freeware version is offered below.


A few months ago, I posted the review below from Carlo. I recently tried out FS Capture myself, and I now agree that this program is one of the best free screen capture tools around. I haven't tried a large number of these programs, but the only other contender in my experience, is the very good Screenshot Captor from DonationCoder. If you have to capture screenshots very often, either of these will work wonders for you.


I've found that both FS Capture and Screenshot Captor can be installed and then turned into stand-alone programs by copying the program folder to a USB drive.


Review from Carlo

A good tool for taking screenshots is one of those programs that will always be on my quick launch bar (and believe me: it's a lot better than the PrtScr key). In my endless search for the "perfect tool", I've tested many programs out there, as you can see in my Free software list.


This time, it's FastStone Capture time: this little, light (and free for home users) application, from the authors of the well-known FS Image Viewer, is well worth a try ... read the rest of Carlo's review
