Screenshot Captor is designed for grabbing lots of screenshots with minimal intervention. It has great multi-monitor support and includes a full image explorer with full shell functionality. The app also has good integration with external tools, such as graphic editors, and watermarkers.
Screenshot Captor also supports some effects that are not seen in similar capture tools, including the ability to automatically locate and enhance the active window. The app supports lots of image capture methods, including full screen, multi-monitor workspace, arbitrary regions, fixed sized areas, or gdi objects. It supports gif, png, jpg, tiff and other popular formats.
Screenshot Captor has more than the usual snipping options, and because of this, the interface can seem a little busy and a tad overwhelming at first glance. Don’t worry, there is a comprehensive Help doc available to help people learn about the different tools in the app.
What really makes this app stand out from the crowd is the post-capture features that offer unique editing tools. For instance, you can add special effects to the screenshot to make it more blurry, add caption text to the image, adjust colors, insert shadows, create a border around the image or upload it.
Overall Screenshot Captor is a solid tool that is easy to learn, has some great features and effects tools, it is lightweight and has a small footprint. What more could you ask for?
[Help] Added new help topic on region select mode.
[Improvement] Much faster and smoother region capture mode keyboard nudge operation.
[Improvement] Added 'T' shortcut in region capture mode to toggle controlling corner (useful for nudging and adjusting region).
[Improvement] Tweaked the detection of a simple left-click in region capture mode to avoid spurious case where a single click was interpreted as a drag and release capture in region capture mode.
[Improvement] Added 'R' shortcut in region capture mode to switch to fixed sized region move mode.
[Improvement] Added ability to quickly select preset region sizes in region capture mode using your favorite and last sizes, using keys 0-9.
[New Feature] Auto selection adjustment (under Edit Menu) -- will resize (both and expand and shrink) the current selection region to tightly fit the foreground contents on a solid background. Great for isolating GUI controls, windows, etc.; New toolbar menu item for this command, and shortcut key 'a' in editor.
[New Feature] In main editor, use keys 0-9 to select from MyFavorite region sizes (0 to unselect).
[BugFix] Pixelation effects grid borders were sometimes off by one pixel.
[BugFix] Sorting by name in thumbnail panel was not working.
[Improvement] Speed of sorting thumbnail panel has been improved.
[BugFix] Eliminated unnecessary long delay after closing options panel and performing other operations that effected the thumbnail panel (sorting, etc.).
[BugFix] Active screenshot (position) in screenshot thumbnail panel was being lost after closing options or performing some other menu operations.
[BugFix] Ragged/splice effects dialog was not remembering choice of affected edges.
[Improvement] New option for post-capture pop-up dialog, you can choose whether the main app should stay minimized when you hit enter from the post-capture pop-up dialog if it was already minimized when you triggered the capture, or should always show the main window afterwards (previously the default).
[Improvement] When copying a selected region to clipboard or saving a selected region as a separate file (see toolbar button and save menu for this handy operation), it will now properly save alpha transparency if the selection is non rectangular (for example made using lasso selection or auto adjust region action).
[Bugfix] Copying selected region with objects in it was not copying the objects.
