10 Best Screenshot Apps for Windows

 

The ability to snag a screenshot is a helpful trick that comes in handy all the time. Sometimes this function is native to the device, but usually you’ll need the right application to help you edit and augment your screenshots to your heart’s content.

 

1. PicPick

PicPick comes packed with options including FTP image uploads, customizable hotkeys, magnification, and selective shots. It also has a built-in image editor. It’s user-friendly for newbies, but still versatile enough for graphic designers. Because it’s free, you’ve got to opt-out of the adware that comes with the installation.

 

2. Snagit

SnagIt is a top shelf screenshot app. You can download entire web pages with the website image capture feature. Just type in the URL and you’ve got instant web imagery. It even allows you to create profiles of your screen capture preferences. There’s an additional list of features as long as your arm, all for the steep price of $50.

 

3. Jing

This app is simpler, but it still allows you to edit and share your images. Jing installs easily, and it has a built-in editor. You can either save locally or get a URL for sharing online. Jing lets you capture your whole screen or just portions. You can also do screen casts, which makes it a great tool for instructional videos.   

 

4. Screen Captor

This app can capture multiple screens, or just the parts you want using hot keys or an exhaustive menu. Aside from screen shots, it can also take self-portraits or retrieve images from a scanner. It has a lot of features for a free app, even if you do have to opt-in to download it.

 

5. DuckCapture

This free app from DuckLink Software is a simple screenshot solution that allows you to capture entire web pages, regardless of size. You can also multi-capture several selected regions at once. It has annotation tools and one-click upload to minus.com.

 

6. SnapDraw

This is a stand-alone app that supports active and full-screen capture and has a built-in image editor for effects and annotations. The captured image can be saved locally in various formats, uploaded to FTP, sent to an email, or moved to the clipboard. You can’t, however, print directly from the app.  There’s also no auto-scroll or selective capture.

 

7. Lightscreen

If you want simple and easy, you can’t go wrong with Lightscreen. It captures and saves locally in multiple formats with no fuss. It generates file names and saves them automatically. It has support for hotkey capture and multi-monitor configurations. You can even adjust the screenshot resolution.

 

8. Cropper

Also easy to use but slightly less intuitive than Lightscreen, this app has all the basic functions but doesn’t save or scroll automatically. It does full-screen, active window, and selective capture.

 

9. Snipping Tool

If you’re still on Windows 7, you’ve got this app installed. It supports full-screen, active window, webpage, and selective (rectangle or freehand) capturing, to which you can add annotations, save, or send via email in-app. It’s only available for Windows 7, however, and has very limited editing capability (highlighting and freehand line drawing only). Plus, you can’t output to the printer.

 

10. Greenshot

Last, but definitely not least, is this lightweight app that has optical character recognition (OCR) support for 32 languages, so captured text in the image can be translated back to text if desired. Full-screen or selective capture is supported, and you can save the image locally in multiple formats, or upload to a file sharing website. You can also annotate and export images to other MS Office applications.

 

What’s your screen capturer of choice? Sound off in the comments.
