Can't live without...

We spend a lot of time online (some may say too much) but along the way we have found a number of free web tools that should be in your toolbox.

This is my "can't live without"
MWSnap is a freeware program which has been around for years. In fact I have so far installed it on 4 of my own PC's along with my childrens and many customers!

Quite simply it enables you to capture and save any part of what can be seen on the computer screen. It will capture a window, the entire desktop, a fixed rectangle that you draw or a moving rectangle that you define.

  • Support for BMP, JPG, TIFF, PNG and GIF
  • An auto-extending list of fixed sizes, perfect for snapping images for icons and glyphs.
  • A zoom tool for magnifying selected parts of the screen.
  • A ruler tool for measuring screen objects lengths.
  • A color picker showing screen colors with separated RGB parts.
  • Adding frames and mouse pointer images.

Screen captures are useful for various reasons. You can use them to highlight a certain aspect of a program to friends, make presentations or explain a technical problem you’re having.

MWSnaps useful and very user-friendly features require no special expertise and the program itself is lightweight and simple to install.
