Software description

WinSnap is a specialized software used for taking and editing screenshots on your computer. Convenient and easy to use, WinSnap offers powerful tools to conveniently crop and take your screenshots to the next level. Gone are the days of badly cropped images due to the non-rectangular nature of windows in Aero-themed desktops since WinSnap gives you professional looking crops that are automatically enhanced in terms of details such as highlights, shadows, reflections, watermarks, highlights, and many more options using its advanced smart cropping algorithm.

With its many image editing and screen capturing functions, WinSnap gives you a wide range of options to present your screen shots, be it for casual purposes or professional edits that you can use for your work presentation, blog, or website in the cleanest and most seamless way possible. Try to remember the last time you cropped a window with a rounded corner and you’ll notice those ugly remnants at the corner which takes too much time to clean and remove. WinSnap is specially made to remove them automatically without you having to do almost anything at all.

WinSnap also includes almost all of the most common functions and tools that you use in your favorite image editors. This include, but is not limited to, adding lines, shapes, arrows, or text annotations functions. With the powerful pen tool, you can easily create smooth spline curves for your editing purposes or quickly hide sensitive information found in your screenshots with its innovative pixelate tool. You can also quickly give life and emphasis to the text in your screenshots using the highlight tool or you can make specific parts of your screen shots stand out with the colorize and blur effects.

Since WinSnap automatically removes the ugly preexisting Aero shadows, WinSnap gives you the option to easily customize the shadow effects of your captured screen shots with details such as shadow color, size, opacity, or direction to give another depth to them. You can also choose from the different preset options to easily switch between the shadow styles of your preference, thereby giving you an even faster option to customize your screen shots.

Probably one of the best things that WinSnap can do is that it supports image transparency. Every screen shot you capture can be saved with a transparent background. If you have multiple windows or objects in your screen shot, the algorithm immediately recognizes the empty areas between them and turn those into a transparent background while the shadows or reflections of those windows would become semi transparent. If you have Microsoft office installed, the screenshots that have been applied with transparency can be copied into the clipboard and you can paste it directly into any office applications while maintaining its background transparency.

Lastly, WinSnap has the ability to simultaneously capture different objects such as windows, dialog boxes, popup menus, buttons, or other elements in your user interface. You can easily do this by holding your CTRL button during object capture mode. You can also try region capture mode, which is not as detailed as the previous mode it basically just crops an entire portion.

WinSnap is available for all versions of Windows operating systems above Windows XP and offers a free version as well as a one time pay version with a lifetime license.
