Screenshot Captor is software developed for capturing images on a desktop.

It was created to use on a PC (personal computer) and is absolutely virus-free and does not cost a thing to download. With that being said, Screenshot Captor allows one to take a screenshot of anything on a desktop. It can range from an active window, to a particular zone on the screen and even to capture a website from top to bottom with its scrolling windows feature. It will even capture everything that is open on the screen, including on multiple monitors. From that, it allows one to assign a certain number of keyboard combinations for each individual type of captures used.

Apart from that, also included in this freeware is an outstanding amount of special effects and filters that can be used for the screenshots that have been taken. Some of the special effects included are: Blurring, framing, adding boarders and other images, shadows and many, many more. The software provides watermarks for the images; it has the ability to take screenshots from web cameras and is able to record videos with the add-on. It works perfectly fine on XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. It is also easy to upload any images onto an image hosting site and it is simple to send screenshots to friends and family or anyone else through email.

A few other examples of what can be done with this freeware is that it allows one to retrieve a single part of an image whilst the rest linger in a dark color tone or simply remain hidden. It’s able to trace a color shaped to grasp a particular part of the image or even make the entire screenshot a certain shade.

Like the special effects there are also many great tools that can be used in Screenshot Captor. One can display practically every pixel in the taken screenshot by simply zooming all the way up to a high number of 999%! Also included is the ability to instantaneously generate thumbnails form the image. To make it simpler, the freeware has a large amount of options on the task-bar and a mini-interface that comes up once the image is “captor’d”.

Any saved files are immediately saved to the folder that was assigned using the corresponding names in that folder.

Screenshot Captor has a very good rating among its consumers and fan-base and hardly anyone is dissatisfied with this computer program.
