FastStone Capture 5.3 - Best Freeware Screen Capture


"I used to screen capture using Alt-Prt Scrn or Print Scrn, but it is getting very tedious to do cropping. Afterward I used screen capture from Microsoft OneNote and it also not good since you have to specify the region using mouse and sometime you miss a couple of pixel. With FastStone Capture, I can specify which I want and the automatically select the area and highlight it with red border. There are also hotkeys to capture active window, window/object, rectangle region, freehand region, fullscreen, scrolling window. You can also specify after pressing the hotkey to automatically save the capture and with predefined name. v5.3 is the last version to be available as Freeware, as of v5.4 it is a shareware, but I think v5.3 is good enough for majority of user looking for a freeware screen capture." - Richard
