Mitch K I picked up this program last time it was offered on BitsDuJour. All I can say is, "I love this program". It is reasonably priced and makes my life easier. Definitely a great way to make the your computer's "PrintScreen" functionality work the way you want it to.

Alexander Avdonin The discount is on WinSnap Personal License ($24.90 value) which includes FREE upgrades to all future versions of WinSnap. So, yes, this offer is for version 3.0 and for the next versions too.

You can choose any edition according to your needs:
* WinSnap 32-Bit Edition (standard, for all OS)
* WinSnap 64-Bit Edition (for XP/Vista x64)
* WinSnap Portable Edition (run from USB drives)

No, the current version of WinSnap does not support 'scrolling' capture. It is designed to capture visible windows & objects (Vista UI, multiple application windows, buttons and dialogs).

Steven Avery Hi Folks,

WinSnap has always been a very fine program. Some more expensive screen capture programs are super-sophisticated, a bit on the complex side, some even have an text grabbing component (a special feature which itself has more than one method possible). Some are super-simple, like Purrint.

WinSnap has been one of my fav toward the simpler end, and this discount is enuf to play with it the next few days and if still has a nice feel, taket the Bits Du Jour special.. Especially with a lifetime license. ("All future versions").

Especially now that I am comfortable with Notezilla or Stickies as an annotation" method. (You create the sticky before you take the picture and make it any size and color and place on the screen. In a sense this is far simpler than the picture program adding the feature. This is a note for the WinSnap author, since the question comes up on his forum. Oh, good point, WinSnap has a true forum for support, questions, enhancements, always a big plus.

I tried Jing for the "quick save to the cloud" screen capture for awhile, and found it reasonably good. (Nice for when you want to place a link on a forum in one-step.. less good for your own indexing and remembering.)

Something similar, a cloud interface, would be good for a future WinSnap release. I think the problem is that WinSnap has to make a connection with a vendor, and cloud vendors are not the most stable and reliable creatures of the sky.

Shalom,
Steven

Frank Stephens I also agree that WinSnap is very high-quality for what it does. NTWind does an excellent job of producing high-quality products, and keeping them up-to-date, especially on Vista, where many utilities fail to function properly. I also particularly like another one of their products, WindowSpace.

Those with NVidia graphics cards should note that NVidia only cares about 3D gaming, and fails in other areas, especially basic 2D support. I had to downgrade from the Vista GeForce 185.85 driver to 182.50 because the multi-monitor support was completely broken. You may have problems capturing some DirectX screens, but that's a problem with NVidia's drivers, no other screen capture utility will do any better. If Object capture doesn't function properly, your NVidia driver has flaked out (it does that a lot in many 2D areas), and you'll need to restart Vista.

Steven Avery Hi Folks,

Thanks Alexander. Just went for the purchase.

A perfect example of where Bits Du Jour shines. A little-known yet fine software. Lots of worthy competitors, freeware, paid, donation and even its own "last freeware version". Might get lost in the shuffle, yet with the discount you rethink ..

So .. how can you pass by a $12 purchase for a lifetime license for a fine friendly, helpful, useful software ? Then you can give a little support to a small good programming company, you can ask lots of questions on the forums as an active user and you can give feedback and suggestions toward future enhancements.

Screen capture is funny, sometimes you may want lots of bells and whistles (the excellent Snagit, Hypersnap and others) and surely image annotation is a nice feature on some occasions, as are scrolling images and, when available, text capture. And more. Maybe in the long run you buy one of the big boys, and go through the learning curve, maybe not.

However .. simplicity, clarity, friendliness. Almost all the time that is all I ask. Quick print to the printer or a file or the cloud. Window or full-screen. Clean and crisp. Even Purrint is usually fine, to go to the ultra-simple (only full screen). WinSnap simply offers a very nice balance, it has always been a pleasure to use and I look forward to using more the NTWind software, pleased to be back, I'll look at the other software too.

Shalom,
Steven Avery

Frank Stephens Everything from NTWind gets my recommendation, the developer knows his stuff. WinSnap is simple but can capture things which other capture tools mess up on Vista and higher. It has some effects. For annotation, I recommend the free FastStone Image Viewer (Edit, Draw Board), it supports PNG transparency. You can also load the image back into WinSnap to add effects like reflection after annotation.

I plan to add this functionality to WinSnap 4 (as an option). The problem is that there is no way to capture the native Aero shadow when it is not fully visible on the screen (f.e. window is adjacent to the screen edge).

Bob S This is a very nice tool, with a number of useful features. I plan to buy, but am concerned about one of the features.

I had selected "contour" and then deselected - unfortunately, when selecting a region the object shown in the display window has "rounded corners," which makes it very difficult to precisely locate the cross-hairs on the corners of the object. This doesn't seem to be correct, so I wonder how I get back to "square" regions showing, as opposed to the contour.

1) start the Region capture mode
2) right-click the screen to open the context menu
3) select "Rectangle" from the menu (it is the default region shape)

_*_ I currently use Snagit 9 and wondered how this compares?

I know Snagit 10 just released, but for the cost this may be a nice way to go.

Does it have anything like the Snagit Editor to manipulate the captures?

Thanks for any insight on this.

Ulrich I have ordered a license for WinSnap a couple of weeks ago, because I was sick of the lack of decent PNG transparency in SnagIt 9. I have lost track of how many times I had to edit images made with SnagIt, placing a white rectangle behind the captured PNG to undo transparency introduced at the wrong place, yet keeping the rounded corners of the window. With the WinSnap 3.5.1 beta, things just work as they should: I get a clean capture in PNG with an optional alpha-blended shadow and/or a cool looking reflection, like I always tried to achieve in SnagIt and was never able to. In version 10 it seems that it this finally done properly, but it is too late for me - I am not paying for yet another upgrade. I am a customer for 10 years, so this might give you an idea how much I actually liked WinSnap. It just does what I need, no bloat. (Page curl effect, I am looking at you.) WinSnap does not have its own capture editor, but Alexander's software allows me to send the capture to a real PNG editor like Fireworks, where I have all the tools I need to get the effect I want. So, while WinSnap does not have all the features of SnagIt, for me this is just a case of "less is better". You should definitely get the software and try it out.

Doug Atkinson Wasn't too sure about this offering at first. I use MWSnap quite regularly, but on Vista it seems to have some issues. One feature I use all the time is "Repeat Last Capture" along with Region selection; where you select a region, and snap a new picture each time the area in the region changes. I don't want to have to define a new region every time, and I'm not capturing a window or an object, but a selected area within a window. I thought you couldn't do it in the demo, but found a great tip in the NTWind forum: "You can store the region size and position in WinSnap (since version 2.x): 1) start the Region selection mode 2) select a region on the screen 3) right-click somewhere, check "Fixed size" and "Store position" 4) take the shot Next time you start the Region selection mode, press Enter\Space or use left-click to capture the same region. " Works great and you made a sale!

Jason Howard The requirement to use multiple apps to complete the capture and annotate process - can be both a good or a bad thing

While WinSnap is one of the best apps at actually doing the screen capture - it is quite possible that if annotation/illustration features were added - it might totally suck at that aspect.

What WinSnap does have is a "Tools" menu where you can launch other apps to further edit the "captured" graphic file. So the user can choose whatever application they want to further edit the screenshot - depending on the features required.

Doug Atkinson Winsnap is also my favorite screen capture tool It has a well rounded set of features, such as auto numbering of successive screen captures, delay screen capture, good hot key support, and the ability to capture a variety of screen types. As with Jason, I'd rather see scrolling screen capture than annotation capabilities. I usually find myself taking lots of screen shots at once and any editing is done later, so I don't need editing capabilities within the same program.

I've tried a lot of freeware screen capture programs, but I keep coming back to WinSnap!

Eddie Tex @ Presiding Emissary,

I am a registered Snag-It user (version 9) and I chose to purchase WinSnap today. It is far less feature-packed than Snag-It but I love WinSnap's simplicity and effectiveness at capturing clean snap shots. In fact the features advertised of WinSnap (cleaning up the background and the rounding of edges might not even be supported by Snag-It... at least not in v9). That said, Snag-It DOES support scrolling windows, and features the advanced annotation tools, but it is (in my opinion) a large and heavy application. I have no issue sacrificing that and leveraging one of many great image tools on the market... and given that WinSnap is supported with lifetime upgrades at only a fraction of the cost, I'm willing to wait for NTWind to implement the extra features that it is missing today (mostly the scrolling window capability)!

Warren Russell Barry, Zsolt, Jason, and others who have requested scrolling windows capture (just scanning the discussion, I have seen six or seven requests, I think, starting from the second comment here):

This offer was well timed for me, since I just installed the Snagit trial and am considering buying it. However, the FIRST thing I looked for was to see if it supported scrolling.

I just did a search of the Winsnap forums and found multiple threads starting FIVE YEARS AGO requesting this feature. Alexander has never agreed to add it; as he has done here, he has always answered "maybe." I wouldn't hold out any hope that it will ever be added.

I don't understand why he doesn't add such an obviously much-wanted feature. Is it just too hard to program? I use screen capture mostly to send snapshots to technical support, and quite often have a scrolling window I want to send. Just yesterday, in fact, I had this issue. Alexander has asked why it is needed; here is an example. In Windows 7 Indexing Options, if you choose Modify, you get a list of selected locations. I have a Users folder on both drive C: and drive D:. I wanted to show that the Users folder is selected for indexing, on both drives, but without scrolling, I was unable to display enough of the tree to see whether the Users directory belonged to c: or d:.

In fact, even Windows Explorer Windows have this same issue; they have scroll bars, and if you want to see more than is displayed on your screen, you have to scroll. And if you have to take multiple screenshots at different levels of scrolling, you lose the relationships between the Windows' contents.

Eddie Tex @ Warren, in my opinion, scrolling windows is not a trivial feature to implement. I've seen many screen capture tools and of the group, I know of two that support this: Snag-It and Ashampoo Snap. That said, I have occasionally run into issues with both tools in different circumstances.

The dilemma with developers is whether or not they want to implement a feature that works inconsistently and thus, opening themselves up to bug reports... or would they rather just focus on the features they know they can execute on... and do those to perfection.

Extended Window Capture function when running on Windows XP® . Resizes a window to be much bigger than the screen before the capture - in one quick step, no auto-scrolling!

It is the second option that sounds like what I would want...

I already bought WinSnap right after my first post, so I am not complaining... It is just a feature that I think would be very helpful in a program that is already the best at what is designed for: Capturing screen contents as accurately as possible.

Frank Stephens Alexander Avdonin, the one issue which I've had with WinSnap is that I normally have it set to save automatically, as I usually do multiple captures. But if I change the effect options for subsequent captures, it changes the last saved file without notice, which is a problem.

I'll see what's new in the development version 4, but I didn't need annotation or external editor links since I use other tools to do that later. Some people clearly want scrolling captures, I rarely need that (but wish it was there when I do) and a number of tools can do it, but some do it badly and both horizontal and vertical scrolling is required.

Ed Ward Comments and a question:
1. Full featured alternative - I am currently evaluating Fullshot; appears to be a very good alternative used by developers/designers. Allows multiple annotations, etc.
2. Giving up on program I've used for years - SPX Instant Screen Capture; would "hang up" with Windows 7; unable to resolve, despite requests to developer
3. Best feature in SPX that I've not found elsewhere - hot key = hold down right mouse key for 1 sec., cross-hairs appear. Fastest, easiest way to capture a region.

Can WinSnap do # #?

Frank Stephens People are forever asking questions that the trial would answer. Unlike many applications, those from NTWind have extremely minimal installation and can be readily uninstalled. You can choose the hotkeys for the different types of captures, Ctrl-Alt-PrtScrn is the default for region capture. You get a magnified view, you can use the arrow keys for more precise positioning, and you can choose the shape of the capture.

Over time I think it will be a very competitive product that has a lower price point and LTL. Hard to beat that! :o)

Doug Atkinson I purchased WinSnap here on BitsduJour at the last sale, and have found it quite pleasant to use. I've tried quite a few alternatives, but like the simplicity of WinSnap without sacrificing any features that I need. The ability to "delay" on taking a snapshot has also been very helpful. I do not think it provides "scrolling" capture ability, which might be helpful at times, but is not a necessity for me.

Ashampoo is constantly promoting Snap5 for about $6 on promo - a good deal as it captures video and has timed capture. Snagit is nice with the built in editor but it lists for $50!!!!! Want a screen capture that can capture motion, defined screen sections on a time lapse schedule or on keystrokes AND can email or post images to online image folders and much more??? Try IcyScreen by sweet 16 software. How does winsnap fit in?- it has some nice features, especially for transparency snaps and is a good value at $12 today.

Steven Avery Hi,

Very nice software, good company, the forums show real sincerity. I bought the earlier version. Although right now my main is Screenpresso (which is a bit slow to launch).

With annotations here I will try to re-arrange the keys to allow WinSnap to be used. ie. when I do not want to go to cloud. Suggestion for next improvement.... some "quick-cloud" integration, eg. using Zuplopader as done I think by ScreenshotCaptor.

The lifetime upgrade, used from 3.5 to 4.0 ,went extremely easy. DId not have to reenter anything. Well done.

Yes, there are many good screen capture programs, but in some ways of simplicity and clarity, with good functionality, Winsnap may be the best.. Purrint is super quick and easy, but only does full screen, and the ability to do regions is rather basic.

Sam Calabrese For what it's worth, the program works very, very well. And it is a steal at the price. I have been using it for a long time and it does things very easily and quickly compared to other heavy-duty screen capture utilities that I also use (Snag-It, for example). One feature I really appreciate is the ability to capture OBJECTS very easily, such as a tool bar, icon, drop down list, etc. Its ability to quickly save with TRANSPARENCY is outstanding and very useful if you're cutting and pasting images into programs like PowerPoint.

That this program is being sold here for $12 is incredible.

From the website are the answers to some of the questions posted here:

Thumbnails and scale option: With WinSnap, you can easily create small thumbnails and automatically resize images to fit the fixed size of your pages.


Q: Can I install WinSnap on my laptop?
A: Yes, you can install WinSnap on all your computers.

Q: Can I use WinSnap at work?
A: Yes, the Personal License allows you to install WinSnap on your work computer.

Q: I need to move WinSnap to a new computer. Do I have to buy it again?
A: You don't have to pay for WinSnap twice. You can install and activate WinSnap on all your computers. Licenses are "per user", not "per computer".

Frank Stephens Anon eMous, I already clearly posted that WinSnap doesn't do scrolling capture, and if you downloaded the free trial or read the online help, you would know. I also posted that free tools will do full captures of web pages. I get annoyed with people who accuse me of working for this or that company.

Michael Lenser, WinSnap just does ordinary image captures, which again you could tell from the trial or from the online help. There isn't a portable version, it wouldn't make sense to have one. It's licensed per-user, you can install it on all of your computers. You can use external OCR software.

Chris Roy Jackson, BDJ was flaking out and not displaying some posts. If you're running Win7, you should be using IE9, although the problem appears to be with your video drivers. You should check for a newer video driver, although if you have other than ATI or nVidia there may be a problem with the driver anyway. IE runs in Protected Mode under Win7, as I said you may need to run WinSnap as an Administrator (I don't have to, but I'm on an Administrator account). Full-screen capture (rather than window) may work. Again, there are free tools for capturing web pages.

Sam Calabrese, I'm not aware of any way for WinSnap to resize images. Of course, you can control the window size of the capture.

eb235 With due respect to all parties involved, I'd like to get to see the "portable version" issue settled.

Last year (Aug 11 2012) someone noticed the download links to portable and U3 versions of WinSnap (on the product website) were not functional. These links (on the main product page) still exist and are still not functional. In fact all download links in the developer's blog take to the download page for the current version.
From this blog, It seems the last version of WinSnap to have a portable edition was 3.5.7

If the development of a portable version for WinSnap is stopped, the least one could expect is an update of the main product page. After at least one year, it's not asking too much.
Of course if there's a (official) way to turn WinSnap 4.x into a portable edition, it should be made more obvious. (Could not find a way to do it from a regular install of the trial).

Just to avoid the "why do you need a portable version if you can install on multiple computers ?" argument, let me add that I usually need to make screenshots on classroom computers that are not mine, where I should not install software or just cannot install software.

WinSnap has most of the operations I need, and the use is very intuitive.

I couldn't find any portable version on their site at first, but then used their search feature to search for portable and all I could find was a very old free version 1.1.10 which was released on January 31, 2007.

I haven't tried it, but couldn't you install it to a thumb drive or move the installed folder to a thumb drive?

There is also a program called Thinstall that scans your computer before you install any program and then you install the program and then run the scan again and it makes a portable app with all of the changes that it finds on the second run.

Although I have played with other programs, for simplicity and clarity and ability to go with the later operating systems, I always lilke WinSnap.

I might take a dozen pictures in a day, usually I set it to region, there is a reasonable text annotation feature I usually forget to use.

If you are bumbling around with another program, or a Windows print attempt, and do not need super-sophistication, try this one out.

_*_ I use both WinSnap and SnagIt for capturing Screenshots. WinSnap is not quite as robust as SnagIt, it is a great program that will likely do the vast majority of screen captures that people need.

SnagIt costs to upgrade all the time, while WinSnap has free lifetime updates. There is no comparison in this area WinSnap definitely wins.

The Developer updates and makes the program better; WinSnap has come a long way in a rather short time.

I am very pleased I own this program, keep up the good work.

Doug Atkinson I've used WinSnap for several years now, and find it quite useful. The auto-numbering and saving feature speeds repeated captures during webinars when you want to capture slides or other fast moving screens. The delay-capture tool helps to capture windows that "lose focus" when you try a normal screen capture. The only feature missing that I would like to see (and please correct me if it's a feature that is already there and I've missed it!) is the scrolling web-page capture. That is, there are some tools that let you capture a an entire web-page, even if part of it is scrolled off the current view. Thanks for a great product!

Hawkeye Some Issues I found, listed below, using Win 7, SP1, x64, US, with limited testing.

1. When capturing, the Start Menu and the Shut Down sub menu displayed, it picked part of the desktop. I can see why because the actual menu is wider. Is there anyway, it can detect and pick up the menu portion that is actually displayed. A workaround, would take two images and arrange them to make one. I haven't tested it but I'm confident it could be done with an editor that could resize the canvas.

2. Using the Capture, Application, buttons or hot key, it picks up Explorer and two sub menus fine. An annoying issue occurs when the capture image is displayed inside WinSnap. Explorer is now behind WinSnap, which is correct. The annoyance is the sub menus are on top of WinSnap and the only way to get rid of them, is to minimize and then restore the WinSnap window.

3. Personally, a PDF manual with all the features of the program would be a whole lot better for the users than trying to find what you're looking for with examples and a FAQ on the website. I didn't see anything about the Capture, Application, I just gave it a spin.

I created a custom entry to use the Snagit Editor since I have already have Snagit. I like the ease of the sub menus, it could be an enhancement but not a direct replacement because of the lack of the scroll capability. Snagit has went down hill over the last few versions. They have a tendency to cut features at will with no regards to the users. When version 12 was released, they had dropped the text capture which they found out was more popular than they anticipated. There still some bugs in the final version 11 but I have yet to see any software completely bug free.

I'm considering this but with the quick tests, the two items are a concern, especially the second one, since there haven't been any updates in almost a year and I found it pretty quick. The first one has a workaround since part of the menu displayed is narrower than the actual menu. With the transparency, I don't think it would look that good with a small piece of what's behind it, especially with the shadow turned on.

Like I said, I'm considering this but I would like to get some feedback on the issues above.

Thanks,

I really love faststonecapturepro for its feature that when you have clicked the button to take the screenshot, (with feature of autocaption) faststonecapture then displays a small window in which whatever text I write like say the title and url or other text, it then automatically inserts that text under the screenshot image. no need to go to the editor of the screenshot program for inserting the comments. (youcan download faststonecapture version and see the functionality). if you have to add text to all screenshots this feature means a lot of iimages being taken. is this feature in winsnap, or if not then can it be added soon. I would really buy 1+ licenses if this feature is there in winsnap or added soon. thanks. (See image for this, below text - http://i.imgur.com/lmmg31u.png)

Urmel Hello,

is there a possibility to capture scrolling windows?

If not, then I think that this feature is very desirable!

Can you explain me how I can do this?

Best regards,

William W. Geertsema Hello,

I would like to useWinSnap from the command line. I can find an occasional reference to command line switches, but have not been able to find a list of the available switches.

Can you please indicate where such a list may be found?

I like the program (despite the lack of support for scrolling windows), but want to use it in a flexible way (possibly with varying parameters) in command files.

Best regards,
William W. Geertsema

Peter Laszlo I thought that I will give them a plug.
An excellent and very useful piece of software which I use several times a day.
The previous version had a few little annoying niggles, but when I contacted their support last week, the author presumably, they sent me an updated new pre-release version which seemed to have solved the little annoying problems.
Prior to purchasing Winsnap on Bits-DuJour in 2014, I researched all the print screen applications I could find but none were satisfactory.

This is an excellent price and the software is highly recommended if you are looking for a nice, easy to use and practical print screen.application.

smaragdus I purchased WinSnap mainly because it handles well capturing of programs with jutting-out menus. The program is nice but there is what to be desired.

The good:
Lifetime updates;
Output support for the most common image formats (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF);
A simple but decent and good-looking editor- it is not destroyed by the abominable ribbon interface like the editor in HyperSnap;
Several simple effects;
Good tray options- for example the program can be customized to minimize to task bar and close to system tray;
No .NET;
Native x64 version;
Moderate on resource usage- WinSnap uses about 42 MB of RAM on Windows 8 x64- not the lightest one but not as heavy as some commercial resource hog monsters;

The bad:
No portable version;
No support for "Fixed Region", "Free Hand", "Scrolling Window" and "Repeat Last Capture" capturing modes;
Current hot keys are not shown in system tray menu- in case the user happens to have forgotten them they need to go to preferences to check them;
No tools like colour picker, magnifier, ruler, etc;
No uploading capabilities (FTP, image sites);

@Alexander Avdonin
Please consider releasing a portable version, as far as I can remember WinSnap once had such a version and the last free version of WinSnap had a portable version as well. I suppose releasing of a portable version won't cost much time and effort. I believe that a commercial screen capture program should have a portable version. A portable version has advantages- it is easy to back-up, it can be run from external drives with all its data and settings. The other commercial capture program I like- FastStone Capture, has a portable version.

There is no scrolling capture feature in WinSnap 5. Maybe it will be added in a future version, but there are no specific plans yet. Thank you!

Ed Ward Winsnap has a lot of functionality (esp. "post capture" processing) and looks like it could be useful. Over the years I've used half a dozen or more screen capture programs and at any one time use 2 or even 3 different programs, depending on what I'm trying to do. Two features especially important to me are:
1. Speed w/ which the user (i) selects the region to be captured; and (ii) captures and saves the image. One of my favorite programs uses the right mouse button to activate the cursor for image capture (very fast).
2. The ability to capture a region on the initial screen capture, and then set the size of the region captured on subsequent screens to match the size of the initial screen (useful for capturing images of a series of slides, for example, of a webinar so that they're all the same size).

In Winsnap how does the user execute (1), and how easy/fast is it to do? And does Winsnap allow the user to do (2) above?

Thanks!
