For screen capture I have been using Cropper which is very good freebie with few interesting plugins.
It just lacked two features which I always wanted.
1. “Editing” the cropped screen shot.
2. Capture areas which needs to be scrolled up/down.
Even to draw a simple arrow, or write a comment I have to open bulky Photoshop and make changes so that I wont lose the image quality.
It also allow you to edit the screen captures and add text, draw lines/arrows and even balloon stamps.
It has several kinds of Capture modes
- Capture Full Screen
- Capture Selected Region
- Capture Screen Scrolling Windows
- Capture Active Window
and so on..
Along with this it also has some image editing capability like Rotation, Adjust Brighness / Contrast, Image Filters and lot more..
Its absolutely FREE and my virus scanner / spyware cleaner didnt complain about it.
Give it a shot I bet you will love it.
