Screenshot Captor - is this the best screenshot tool?

Posted by ClifNotes, Oct 2008, permalink Screen Capture


I tried Screenshot Captor years ago. Even then I was impressed with all of it's features. The only screenshot tool that I've used that has more is a payware tool I use at work.


I typically have used FastStoneCapture for screenshots, but I've been using the newest version of Screenshot Captor more often as I've become more dependent on the extras it has.


Is it the best screen capture tool? Maybe not, but it's one of the best free capture tools I've used.


Note: This tool does require a free registration. Once you've registered, you'll be able to use any of the other free tools at DonationCoder.com without having to register again.
