MWSnap – Free – The Perfect Multi-Lingual Screen/Image Capture Tool

Are you tired of using the clunky Windows Alt-Printscreen command for capturing screen shots, but you don’t want to pay up to $40 to get more control over this function? Do you need more options and functionally when snapping screen shots?

Well the good news is you don’t have to pay a penny to download and install a great little application that will allow you to do more than just capture screen shots and that will give you the options and functionally you need.

MWSnap is an almost perfect freeware screen capture utility for windows.

  • An auto-extending list of fixed sizes – snapping images for icons/glyphs

This application is an excellent choice for everyone from casual to experienced users. I find this program invaluable and I use it daily to create high-quality screen captures for presentations, documents and most particularly my blogs.

    A good tool with editing feature. Nice. Some screen recording software can even be used as a screen capture tool, like DemoCreator.
