FastStone Screen Capture

Screen capture apps frequently go beyond the traditional role of grabbing images from the desktop and offer a variety of enhancements for control over an assortment of image manipulation options. FastStone Screen Capture is no exception. The core function, screen capture, supports grabbing images in BMP, JPG, GIF, PNG, PCX and TIFF formats. In addition to image grabbing, FastStone also includes a capable image browser with an even longer list of supported formats. Several useful image editing features including crop, rotate, flip, resize and color adjustment round out the feature set. While I find all these image editing features a necessity for any useful screen capture app, they also come in handy for providing a lightweight image editing alternative to powerhouse apps like Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop. While I personally prefer the usability and extensive list of features built into SnagIt for all my own screen capture needs, FastStone does a fine job of delivering the basic requirements for most screen capture tasks.
