SnapIt - An easy to use Screen Capture Software

Product: SnapIT, A screen capturing tool for Windows.

SnapIt, an innovative name and an equally useful software. This review is based on my 7 day experience in using SnapIt, during which time I was quite happy with the user friendliness and usefullness of this software.

How many times do you press the print screen button, for creating images to be inserted into a report?
If the answer is zero,then this product is not for you.
If the answer is not zero, then definitely try this software.

Normally, after every screen capture, we have to open an imaging software, paste whatever we have copied to clipboard, save it as a file in a folder so that we can use this file later.
In some cases while preparing user manual kind of a document, we have to keep on taking screen shots. After each screen shots are taken, we spend a good amout of time in making it a JPG file using an imaging software. This time can be saved a lot by using this software.

Things I liked in SnapIt
  • After screen capture using normal printscreen, I can select the area of screen which needs to be copied. Specify the file name and save it without the help of an imaging software
  • Auto save mode for saving multiple screen captures. In this mode I have to specify the folder where images are to be saved. Also specify a filename. Once in automode, after every Print Screen and area selection the file will be saved in the specified folder with the file name previously specified combined with a count.

Anyone can try this for free since this has a 14 day trial period during which time we can decided whether we need it or not.
