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?
