Gadwin Printscreen

Gadwin Printscreen

I use screenshots for everything. I use them in articles to illustrate some element of what I am discussing and they are also great for helping to describe and fix technical support issues. There is almost no limit to the usefulness of screenshots. However, I wish I could say the same for the integrated screen capture application that is included with the Windows operating systems.

Windows’ printscreen does its job, but this lack luster application doesn’t give you any tools or any way to manage your screenshots. Instead, you have to rely on other programs to pick up the slack. With the traditional Windows screen capture, you had to open up an outside image editing tool in order to save the captured screen . This can become tedious when you are doing something that requires a lot of screenshots, especially considering you can only take one screenshot at a time with Windows.

Well, if you like to take screenshots like this guy does, let me introduce Printscreen from Gadwin. You’ll never look at printscreen the same way again. Gadwin Printscreen gives you options that should have been in the Windows version, but wasn’t. It has tools and options that make the whole process quicker and at the same time, more flexible. Now, doesn’t that sound good?! For example, there’s no need to capture the whole screen. With this week’s download, you can choose from a number of options that allow you to customize you screenshots. You can capture the mouse or not, you can have the screenshot automatically downloaded to a predetermined folder, you can capture just what you want from the screen, etc. With Gadwin, you have complete control.

Here’s a list of some of the great features Gadwin Printscreen brings to the table:

1. Change hotkey configuration.

2. View screen captures in a preview window and magnify the image.

3. Can completely customize the screen capture focus, whether it be the current window, the whole screen or you can even draw a box around the area you want to be captured. In result, cropping your screenshot before it’s even taken.

4. Capture screens can be sent to a number of different locations at the same time:

  • Directly to a file.
  • Send via e-mail to someone.
  • You can send a captured screen to the printer for a fast print.
  • You can even send it to the clipboard.

5. Can edit any screenshot’s file name either manually or automatically.

6. You can change the capture directory.

7. Can set a default program to use for editing the images.

8. Can save the screenshots as one of five different image types: .bmp, .jpg, .gif, .png, .tif, .tga.

9. You can also resize and change an image to grayscale, input a drop shadow, among other things from within the preview pane.

Gadwin Printscreen is everything that the Windows clipboard is not and that’s a good thing. So, you can stick with the old way of taking screenshots or step up to the Gadwin Printscreen way and take control of your screen captures. The choice is yours!

System Requirements:

98/Me/2000/2003/XP or Windows NT 4.0SP6. If you are running any of these operating systems and have a Windows compatible mouse or pointing device, your system has already met all the requirements necessary to run Gadwin Printscreen.
