How to capture a particular area of your Desktop screen and take a screen shot. Every computer user needs a good desktop screen capture utility at one time or the other. Whether you are a researcher, a blogger , a teacher making a presentation, or just making an image collections, the flexibility and the ease of use of these (screen capture) utilities make them much more useful than the full screen capture in windows PrintScr.
Have you ever used the keyboard PrintScr button on your keyboard ? what it does is to capture the whole active screen that you see, and nothing else. There is no option to capture a particular portion of the screen ,like for example a Image, which you may like to capture for later use.
ZScreen is a advanced open source FREEWARE utility, which does practically everything you will ever need in screen capture. This tool ZScreen can take a shot (Capture) of the entire screen, a specific window or a selection you make anywhere on the screen. For anyone who needs to take as many screen shots as I do each day, ZScreen is a real time saver.
The best and the most useful feature of this utility, is being able to capture a user defined area on the screen, be it a Image or a potion of a text from a web page. Each action like taking a full screen capture or a particular selected area has a associated keyboard shortcut. This program works with all popular graphic formats.
However the most outstanding feature of this tool, is the way it can handle the captured images. You can copy them to the clipboard, save them as files, send them to your Image editor programs or even upload it directly to a preconfigured FTP server or to your online Image hosting servers. ZScreen as of now supports uploading to Rapidshare, Flickr, Image shack, Tinypic, Twitter etc. That’s I feel is quite a list, can’t ask for more.
The only downside of this otherwise useful tool, is the program doesn’t include any editing tools, for which you may need to use other third party photo editing software. But than, it’s a screen capture tool and does its job well.
People who frequently need to take screen shots, specially bloggers will love ZScreen, a feature rich screen capture software with the added support for online photo hosting services and other useful features.
