Gadwin PrintScreen 4.6

Gadwin PrintScreen Editor's Review

You want to capture your screen but you want a better program than Microsoft Paint to do that and also free if possible? 'Gadwin PrintScreen' might be the right solution. It's free and it seems to work pretty good.

You can capture the content of the screen with a single keystroke and save it to an already selected folder. The output file types could be BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, and TIF. There are four ways of capturing an image: 'Current Window', 'Client Window', 'Full Screen', and 'Rectangular Area' and you can choose whether you want to capture the mouse cursor or not.

In some cases the functionality of the program is a little odd. For example if you use the 'Rectangular Area', after you make the selection you have to hit enter in order to capture that area. Some interesting features in this programs seemed to be the delay of the capture, where you can delay the capture in a range from 1 to 60 seconds, and the stamps. The stamps are similar to watermarks. When using stamps you can select the color and the level of transparency which will be applied to your text.

The user interface is intuitive and well organized. I think that even a newbie can use this program without problems.

Pluses: It's free and it works good.

Drawbacks / flaws: The magnifier window which is showed when using 'Rectangular Area' stays in the right corner unless you move it. In my opinion it should move when you go with the mouse on top of it.

In conclusion: A nice program that is free and easy to use if you're looking to capture the content of your the screen.
