FastStone Capture is a powerful, lightweight, yet full-featured screen capture tool that allows you to capture and annotate anything on the screen easily.
This can include windows, objects, menus, full screen, rectangular and freehand regions, and even scrolling windows or web pages.
You can choose to send captures to the editor, file, clipboard, printer, email, Word/PowerPoint document, or upload them to your website. Editing tools include annotating (texts, arrowed lines, highlights), resizing, cropping, sharpening, watermarking, applying edge effects, and much more. It also allows you to record screen activities and sound into highly compressed video files. Other features include global hotkeys, automatic filename generation, support for external editors, a color picker, a screen magnifier, and a screen ruler.
FastStone Capture will save files in BMP, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF, and PDF formats. There is also a portable option, so you can put it on a USB drive for use anywhere and anytime.
