Our Picks: 6 Best Screen Capture Apps

Our Picks: 6 Best Screen Capture Apps | Windows 8 - CompuSpace | Scoop.it

Taking screenshots is very handy in a number of circumstances: to create a presentation, to design mock-ups, to explain an issue and to share funny picture with your friends.

 

Here are our 6 favorites screen capturing apps that will help you grab a specific area of your screen, a single window or your whole desktop.

 

SnapCrab and Jing are equally simple and effective if you need to save and share pics on the Web. If you like to add a personal touch to your creations, you will love Screenpresso and its built-in image editor. Greenshot and Snappy are more basic but they are doing the job and they are quick at it. At last, Screenshot Captor is the most extensive app of the six, but it is also a bit more difficult to handle.
