#1 Screen Capture

#1 Screen Capture 4.5

#1 Screen Capture is a complete solution for making screenshots
4.5.3 (See all)

#1 Screen Capture is a complete solution that allows you to capture the desktop, an active window, a screen region and a window object. The program can be controlled from the system tray menu or from within itself. It also offers hotkeys for different actions, but, unfortunately, they cannot be customized.

Once you have taken a screenshot, the program opens the editor, where you can flip, resize, and rotate the image, and apply a great variety of effects; and it also allows you to preview the changes as you apply them. You will also be able to adjust the colors, brightness and contrast. The resulting image can be copied to clipboard, saved in the defined file format (bmp, jpg, gif, pcx, png and tif) or printed. What is more, the user interface is easy to use and intuitive, but I noticed that is very pretty similar or almost identical to that of a program called Amor Screen Capture.

In short, #1 Screen Capture includes all you may ask of a complete screen capture app, so I'm sure it will satisfy many users.
