Gadwin PrintScreen 5.4
A versatile and highly configurable screen capture tool

Gadwin PrintScreen is a free tool which makes it easy to take and save images of your screen.

By default the program replaces the usual PrtSc key action, but you can switch this to some other key, if you prefer.

Pressing the hotkey can then capture the current window, client window, full screen or a freehand rectangular area.

You can have the program copy that area to the clipboard, print it, send it via email, or save it to a file. The latter supports various formats (BMP, PNG, JPG, GIF, TIFF), and you can have the image resized, converted to greyscale, or have a shadow added, as well as automatically naming it.

And there are one or two useful configuration options, too. So for instance you can introduce a delay between pressing the hotkey and the capture taking place, handy if you need to set up the image in some way. And you can choose to hide the mouse cursor, so it won't be visible in the captured image.

Put it all together and this is a likeable, easy-to-use tool. If you need more, though, Gadwin Systems also produce a Professional version which adds a very powerful image editor, perfect when you want to annotate your images with captions, callouts and more. Prices start at $24.95 and you can find out more at the Gadwin site.

Verdict:

It could benefit from more capture types - a scrolling window, say - but otherwise Gadwin PrintScreen proves a capable, easy-to-use and very configurable screen capture tool.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
