Screen Sniper 2.1 (64-bit)
Easily take multiple screengrabs in quick succession

Screen Sniper is a small and simple tool which helps you to take multiple screengrabs in quick succession.

To get started, you first set up the program's key options: the folder where the grabs will be saved, the hotkey you want to use, and the format you'd prefer (BMP, GIF, PNG, TIFF, and JPEG at various quality settings are the options on offer).

After that, though, you just press PrtSc (or whatever you chose as the hotkey), and keep pressing it, and Screen Sniper will take a grab of the full screen, saving it to the defined folder in your preferred format, then repeat just as often as necessary.

One significant weakness here is the program can't grab the current window, it's the full desktop or nothing (so in that sense it's less powerful than Windows alone).

Another potentially annoying issue is the lack of control over file names. Screen Sniper will generate its own, using the date and a number - so your third image on 20th January 2013 might be called "20130120 - SS3.jpg", for instance.

And of course there are no editing or other post-processing options. What you do with the finished images is up to you.

Still, for all that, if you do need to take a lot of full screen grabs then Screen Sniper will do so for you with the absolute minimum of hassle. It's relatively lightweight, using only around 15MB RAM on our test PC. And it's free and safe to install, with no adware annoyances to worry about.

Verdict:

It's a little short on functionality, but if you just need to take a lot of full screen grabs then Screen Sniper may be able to help

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.
