MWSnap – The Perfect Free Image Capture Tool

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.

Selected features:

5 snapping modes.
Support for BMP, JPG, TIFF, PNG and GIF formats, color depth and quality settings.
System-wide hotkeys.
Clipboard copy/paste.
Auto-saving, auto-printing.
Auto-start with Windows.
Minimizing to system tray.
An auto-extending list of fixed sizes, perfect for snapping images for icons and glyphs.
A zoom tool for magnifying selected parts of the screen.
A ruler tool for measuring screen objects lengths.
A color picker showing screen colors with separated RGB parts.
Fast picture viewer.
Adding frames and mouse pointer images.
Multilevel configurable undo and redo.
Multilingual versions.
Configurable user interface.
