  • Screencaps

    What's your favorite method for capturing screen items such as Photoshop palettes, menus, dialog boxes, etc.? What about annotating same (circles, arrows, etc.)?

    I currently use HyperSnap, which I like a lot. It has a configurable time-delay, so I can open menus or position my cursor just how I want it for the capture. It also has a lot of built-in annotation tools.

    What other apps are out there? Are any of them freeware? What about for Mac?

    Some related links, the capture method mentioned is only for the native built in method for Classic Mac OS and Win OS. The info is on resizing and separating screen caps.

      I have Windows. I just hit the print screen button on my keyboard, and then do control-V into a document in Photoshop. It pastes it into a new layer.

        MAC Users/PC Users
        by T Paul
        I use a PC to view the web, but lately I have been viewing the forum from my sister's MAC laptop and noticed that it looks a bit different. Furthermore, some options that I was used to when viewing it on my PC are now missing. So I thought I see if there were any other MAC oddities.

        Why your next Photoshop computer should be a Mac
        by Doug Nelson
        I'll say right now I don't own a Mac, and I've never owned a Mac. But my next computer will be a Mac. I was planning on switching the last time I upgraded my computer, but my old computer died on a Friday and I had a deadline the following Monday, so I had to run out and spend my upgrade budget on a...
