If you’re still using the Print Screen key to dump screenshots into
Paint, you might want to take a look at ScreenHunter 5.0 Free.
This tool isn’t much more demanding than the Print
Screen-to-Microsoft Paint method, but it gives you more control
over the details, such as what the screenshot will contain and
where it ends up.
ScreenHunter offers three options for screenshots. You can print
the whole screen, or instead of cropping the screenshot after it’s
taken, use a crop-style rectangle to clip out the region you want
ahead of time.
Yourscreenshots can be saved as bitmap, JPEG, or GIF files.
For $19.95, ScreenHunter 5.0 Plus offers more capture options.
You can get round screenshots, for example, or you can capture
movies, DirectX, and screensaver visuals.
A Pro version for $29.95 adds image editing features and even
more capture options, including scheduled capture and web capture
options that function a bit like “Tivo” for the Web.
