MWSnap is a free tool that enables you to capture an image from your computer. It can be used to quickly and easily take screenshots of your computer desktop. Features include the ability to take fixed rectangle snapshots, select area snapshots, active window snapshots, and full desktop snapshots. Files can be saved in .jpg, .tiff, .gif, and .png formats.
The user interface may not be visually appealing, but it has clear commands for anyone to use, including beginners. You can access these commands in several ways – from the menu, toolbar, capture panel, or by using the assigned hotkey. Under each option you can view a quick description of the snapshot mode.
Furthermore, you can make minor modifications to an image once you have captured it – transform (rotate, flip), add frame (simple, double, buttonize), or add cursor (e.g. arrow, hour glass, hand point).
In addition, you can use a ruler tool, zoom tool, window tool and color picker, enable auto-saving or auto-printing, select language, and assign hotkeys. You can configure MWSnap to start minimized, confirm files overwriting, restore itself after snapping, auto copy snapped image to the clipboard, disable sound, and more.
