Image Capture Utility

FastStone Capture screen shot

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, highlights), resizing, cropping, sharpening, watermarking, applying edge effects and many more. Other features include global hotkeys, automatic filename generation, support for external editors, a color picker, a screen magnifier and a screen ruler.

FastStone Capture operates on screen windows or image files. It saves files in BMP, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF and PDF formats.

  • This amazing little package is easy to install and use. It is particularly useful for creating cropped windows with torn and shadowed edges, overlaying pointers with shadows and opacity, highlighting regions, etc. --Lochneil 23:37, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
