Snipaste is an easy screen capture and image edition program, especially useful for detecting windows and menus, supporting pixel-level control. Both captured images and various clipboard content can be pasted as a floating window to the desktop. Windows can be moved, organized into groups, saved to file, as well as basic editions like rotation, zoom, translucence, etc.

The program can grab colors, supports themes, and includes multi-screen support. The default keys (which can be customized) are F1 for Snip and F3 for Paste.

What's new? Fixed:
  • Incorrect processing for Quick Save path (the upper directory was used instead, affecting 1.8.6 and 1.8.7)
  • The previous arrow/text scaling is not restored after Snipaste is restarted
  • When the magnifier shows up, the first frame shows the old content

ShareX has been saving me an enormous amount of time lately in generating help documentation. The ability to record a full screen every few seconds, add image borders to captured images, as well as uploading to a variety of different destinations. If you EVER work with Oracle's ridiculous "UPK" program, make sure you have ShareX handy.

ShareX version 11.3.0 is labelled "Pre-release" (unstable), this is also implied by the download link provided at the official web-site (for version 11.2.1) and by the structure of the archive (

I can't extract the exe file with Universal Extractor. I get an error:
"Signature detected: Inno Setup Setup Data (5.2.4)
This is not directly supported, but i'll try to unpack it as version 5110
; Version detected: 5204
Critical error: The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program.
Unpacking failed. This version is not supported."

How can I extract it, then?

ishldgetoutmore on 2011-12-07 21:49

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

dany on 2011-12-08 00:06

@foxcole: click the link in 'how to extract.', you need to replace bin/innounp.exe with the latest version, yours only supports versions up to 5.1.1. Innounp version 0.36 supports unpacking version 5.4.2 Inno Setup installers.
Worked for me.

It's a real pity that the newer versions (aka 1.2.0 onwards) aren't portable, because the whole interface has been wonderfully overhauled and a whole slew of new features have been implemented. According to, the developers basically have no interest in making this portable.

shnbwmn on 2016-08-11 14:24

Update: please see the forum topic for details on getting the latest MyPaint (1.2.0) portabilised via the X-MyPaint launcher.
