This program is an excellent tool to make fast and quality screenshots of a custom region, an application or entire desktop. Options are very smart organized and image editing features includes most requested or used ones.

Can save images to different formats, you can set a custom pattern for naming images, send snapshots directly to email, documents or other applications.

It has useful and really easy to use editing tools and effects, i think you will love it after a few tasks.

1. Light and non intrusive

This small program doesn’t have big and stuffed menus with buttons and other links that could make it hard to understand. It has a compact settings menu where you customize it.

With right click on icon from system tray you can access different actions or the Preferences menu and i recommend you to take a look there at first use.

2. Set custom hotkeys

Choose the most convenient keys to start actions. You can use one or multiple keys as keyboard shortcut.
