WinSnap - Enable Superior Screenshots
WinSnap is a fast user-friendly utility for taking and editing screenshots. It can easily capture windows of non-rectangular form with customized and transparent backgrounds, including Aero Glass on Windows 7 and Vista. WinSnap adds eye-candy shadows, reflections, outlines, watermarks, color effects on the fly. Built-in image editor provides basic capabilities to annotate screenshots and make them talk.
Be sure that you are using the original software: Verify digital signatures!
The new version 4.0 contains a number of innovative features that enable far superior screenshots and even easier working methods.
WinSnap officially supports Windows 7, both 32-bit and 64-bit editions.
If you have ever attempted to take a screenshot of a non-rectangular window with the PrintScreen key, you understand the difficulty:
|PrintScreen||Snagit||WinSnap gains better quality!|
WinSnap can easily take screenshots of non-rectangular and transparent windows and add a real drop shadow effect on-the-fly.
WinSnap 3.5 was especially designed to capture the new Windows UI, first introduced in Vista. It can handle all possible issues with translucent window frames, rounded corners and shadows. Furthermore, it can apply a drop shadow effect very similar to the Aero theme.
Shadows, reflections are semi-transparent! This function allows very easy image compositing, and is very useful when placing screenshots on multi-color backgrounds. There is one PNG image with alpha transparency placed on 2 different backgrounds:
Light Forum Background
Dark Forum Background
WinSnap allows you to simultaneously select and capture multiple objects, e.g. windows, dialogs, buttons and other controls. Multiple windows can be placed on the screen and then easily combined into one screenshot image.
Hold down CTRL or SHIFT to select multiple windows or objects. Also you can select multiple screen regions the same way (in the Region capture mode).
You can configure WinSnap to work with any custom visual styles including modern WindowBlinds 6 skins with rounded corners and per-pixel transparency (see forum for more details). Run AdvConfig.exe to open the settings dialog:
