Free full-featured capturing tool
When it comes to grab an image on your scree all you really need is an easy, efficient capturing tool that enables you to do the job in almost no time. And if it also features some nice effects and filters, what else could you ask for?
This is what you get with EasyCapture: a handy capturing utility that includes all the tools you need to capture anything on your screen, from a tiny user-defined area to the whole desktop. You can use hotkeys for capturing and also open as many images as you want on the program's tabbed interface. Plus it includes some basic effects that you can easily apply on your photos. They may not be as powerful as Photoshop's filters, but they'll do the trick.
But what I specially like about EasyCapture is the ability to add clipart to the images. You can highlight text with a virtual marker, use rectangular shapes and arrows to draw attention to certain elements in the captured image, insert text fields and also fun text balloons to add annotations. Each one of these tools has its own settings to configure size, color and other elements.
EasyCapture has some flaws, that's true. For instance, the scrolling window capture mode didn't really work (it didn't scroll the window completely). Also, the Text tool doesn't show up changes in real time when you're editing the text, which is kind of annoying. But in general terms I found this to be an excellent capturing tool for an unbeatable price.
Capture anything on your screen and edit it with filters, effects and some fun clipart.
