MWSnap is a highly rated small, yet powerful, Windows program for snapping (capturing) images from selected parts of the screen. I find this program invaluable in day to day usage.
The current version will capture the whole desktop, a highlighted window, an active menu, a control, or a fixed or free rectangular part of the screen. MWSnap handles the 5 most popular graphics formats, and contains several graphical tools including zoom, ruler, color picker and a window spy. It can be also used as a fast picture viewer or converter. This is a nice feature.
The application does not require installation and does not need any special drivers or system files.
MWSnap is freeware, but the author will gladly accepted donations.
