Great Screen Capture Software

What do you like best?

Ability to capture more than just one desktop or window

Ability to save file as JPEG, BMP, PDF, TIFF, PNG,

Ability to draw on screen grabs.

Ability to further crop screen grabs

Ability to copy the screen grab and paste into an email

Ability to record the screen as well

Ability to set shortcut keys depending on the type of capture you'd like to perform.

It really is a good value vs performance based screen capture software that even the most inexperienced users can quickly adapt to using

What do you dislike?

The inability to capture interactive menus in the middle of a selection. Typically I have do do a print screen of the entire desktop and then further crop the window to what I need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is far better than the snipping tool and well forth the $20 for the lifetime license. I definitely think this offers a great value for features compared to other more expensive competitors such as SnagIt

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do a lot of instructions/how to for users and with the ability to send them screen grabs of what they need to do, has helped lessened confusion and increase the speed at which users can solve issues without having me to physically visit them. This allows me to We purchased this for all of our foreman, so if they run into issues on computers out in the shop, they can quickly screen capture what they need to show someone.

Lightweight Screen Capture with Good Editing

What do you like best?

The software seems to run very lightweight in the background, meaning it doesn't bog down the computer at all but it very responsive whenever I press the hotkeys to capture the screen. There are a lot of options available for how you'd like to capture the screen (mouse or no mouse for example) and then there's a pretty rich editing software available once you have captured the screenshot.

What do you dislike?

There's not much I don't dislike about the software but one thing that's a little bit of a pain is how Capture creates tabs for each screenshot. It's not terrible but I'd like options for how multiple captures are handled. Maybe have a tiled view with thumbnails or something of the sort. I also can't really tell if the lines showing the boundary of the capture are covering up pixels that are included or if it only captures inside the boundary lines.

Recommendations to others considering the product

After a little bit of use FastStone Capture will feel extremely easy to use and being forced to use other screen capture tools (including the Microsoft built-in tool I had to use to get the screenshot for the review) will seem very cumbersome and lacking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have to take screenshots of software prototypes quite often to send to clients for review and I also use it to capture the state of control software whenever a client is running into issues. So it's great for troubleshooting as well as teaching/sharing.

So easy to use

What do you like best?

The ease of use is astounding. This screen capture system will do anything you want it to do...add text, cut, paste, highlight, add shapes, freeform, whatever you need.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I don't like is that it doesn't automatically save when you close out of it. You must make sure to save before hand.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not hesitate, go ahead and jump in with both feet!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is now so easy to take pictures when dealing with vendors and then send them inline text pointing out exactly what you need from them or what problems you are experiencing.
