Easy image capturing tool with support for video recording

If you have a blog or write for any other online media, you surely know the importance of screenshots. This is why you need to have a decent, reliable screen capturing tool like Free Screen Capturer.

This free tool lets you take snapshots of your computer in several ways (full-screen, active window or selected area) and save it to your computer for later processing. Images can be saved in all popular formats (BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF and TIFF), or sent directly to Windows Clipboard, printer or your default email client.

But that's not all. Free Screen Capturer also lets you record short clips of video right on your desktop. This option is perfect for recording screencasts or creating video tutorials, and it's as easy to use as the image capturing tool. Simply select the target format (only AVI or WMV available), set the number of frames per second and start recoding. The program can even record sound.

Overall, Free Screen Capturer is an excellent capturing utility for your daily tasks. If only it had a built-in editor, then it would be perfect.

    I'd give it a higher rating... but... I just tried installing it on a new computer... installation went fine until I was prompted for a license key.  More
