Capture, upload and share screengrabs in seconds

ICUP (Image Capture and Upload Program) is a small free tool which makes it easier to take and share screengrabs.

Using the program can be as simple as pressing the hotkey (F9 by default), clicking and dragging to define the rectangle you'd like to capture, and pressing Enter. Your image will then be saved and uploaded to the image sharing site, with the link copied to your clipboard, ready for immediate sharing.

If you need to take several captures then you'll appreciate ICUP's history list. You're able to view a list of image URLs; clicking on any of these displays a preview of that grab, and right-clicking the link displays options to edit the image in Pixlr, re-copy its URL to the clipboard, or remove it from the list.

There are a few configuration options, too, although they're not so easy to spot (you need to click the arrow to the right of the "Thumbnail Page" button). Here you're able to define a new hotkey, and tell the program to display the image after its been uploaded, along with one or two smaller tweaks.

The main weakness here is that you only get one capture type: a freehand rectangle. If you want to capture the whole screen, or a window, then you have to move your mouse to one corner (with pixel-perfect positioning), click the left mouse button and drag to the other. It's not difficult, but it's harder than the regular Windows PrtSc and Alt+PrtSc options, an issue in a program which is trying to save you time.

Still, ICUP is very new, and we suspect more capture types will be added, along with other goodies, in the near future. But in the meantime, if you're just looking for quick freehand captures then ICUP works well, and is easy enough to use.


It really needs more capture types, but ICUP does provide a simple way to share screengrabs online.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
