Description: FastStone Capture – Allows you to take screenshots with their subsequent editing.
FastStone Capture makes it possible to capture the entire screen or only part of it – a separate window, its component, a rectangular or arbitrary area specified by the user. The program can also capture scrolling windows. All screenshot tools are located on a special panel that can be placed anywhere on the screen. The program includes an easy-to-use graphic editor, the resulting images can be viewed in the program window, cropped, rotated, resized, sharpened, brightness, color adjusted, added text, printed, sent by mail and perform other operations with the picture.
FastStone Capture allows you to save files in BMP, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF and PDF formats.
In addition, using FastStone Capture, you can record what is happening on the monitor screen into a video file in WMV (Windows Media Video) format.
