I use Hypersnap DX, but Snagit has a lot of fans (and justifiably so). On the Mac side Snapz Pro has the monopoly.

Also Alt-Prt Sc will just capture the active window - handy because it stops you having to crop everything.

I use SnagIt. I have tried several of the others mentioned here with good results. Overall though, I prefer SnagIt.

It integrates well with other programs and I like the way it feels. It's great for adding all sorts of extras (arrows text etc,) to captured images.

One area where I find it particularly helpful is with my young nephew's image manipulations. He E-mails draft copies of his work for me to check out and rather than ring him or write a long winded explanation, I just highlight and add comments to aspects that need work or rethinking.

uh... any of the ones built into OSX.. Shift+Command+4 is the one I use most often since it presents a marqueeing tool to select exactly the area of the screen I need.

Do PC users actually have to BUY a screen capture utility?

I use MW Snap 3.

It allows me to capture Full Screen, Selected Areas, Fixed Size Areas and Active Menus. Allows Copy and Paste, and saves files in most popular file types. Its free standing, so does'nt take up system resources.

Best of all its free.

And of course you know that if you do CMD + SHIFT + 4 and then hold down the ctrl key while dragging around what you want to capture, it copies your selection to the clipboard!!

It's amazing, I came to RTP just now to see if there were any threads about screen/video capture apps on the Windows side and here was this discussion conveniently bumped to the top - way to go!

Take care, Margaret
