    When I made Post 781520 in another thread, I thought once again about all the programs that have been mentioned in the past here in The Lounge for capturing screenshots, aside from the obvious like Paint or Irfanview. Finding such a list is difficult because so many programs get mentioned in so many threads that searching becomes a monumental task.

    Here's your chance to build a screenshot "FAQ" of sorts by listing YOUR favorite program.

    I'll start with three that are NOT free but worth every penny that the writer charges:
    What would YOU like to add to this list?

    I am very happy with the version of Faststone screen capture. The last freeware version was V5.3 and this can be downloaded from a number of sites, including aplusfreeware.

    I use SnagIt as my primary, but also like "Graphic Workshop Pro" from Alchemy
    www.mindworkshop.com/alchemy/gwspro.html
    There are many graphic programs from this developer.
    From what I can see it is similar to Irfanview

    On most of my machines I use a OLD copy of "Printscreen 2000" which is now not free but a newer version.
    On the Vista and Windows 7 machines, I use "Snipping Tool" that comes with the OS.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I use Hypersnap http://www.hyperionics.com/ for the last 7 years now with great satisfaction. The program is not freeware but all updates are free. Occasionally there is a new version for which some additional payment has to be made.

    I use SnagIt and have for quite some time. I also have a little screen capture utility called, "Namo Capture" which came with "Namo Web Editor"... very basic but does what it's designed to do. And I have occasionally used the Vista "Snipping Tool" which is hardly impressive. Methinks, however, that as robust as SnagIt is with features it is getting rather bloated as of late and thus more difficult/time consuming to use. If the trend continues I may abandon it and try one of the myriad other alternatives.

    There's something wrong with your link, Bob and I can't get through on it. Is this the correct place?

    Morning all

    For my occassional use I have the free MW Snap which seems to do most things I need. Can anybody tell me if any of the other programs mentioned above can scroll a page and the capture it. For example, on my laptop I may want to capture a whole A4 page but shrinking it and then capturing it sometimes produces graphics which when enlarged again are distorted?
    Cheers

    Snagit, FastStone Capture and Hyperionics HyperSnap can all capture a scrolling window such as a web page or Word document.

    No one has mentioned Irfanview yet. This is my choice unless more complex editing is required, which is highly unlikely in my case. Just press "c" to get prompted with the capture options.

    I was able to get through on Bob's AND your links.

    For grins and giggles I downloaded zip files from both sites. Both were installed and worked (separately tested of course).

    FWIW

    As you can see in Bob's post, the link was edited by DaveA after Bigaldoc posted his reply.
