I tried Snipaste for awhile and gave it an honest chance but 4me it doesn't compare to zScreen (I use older version) which I have used for a very long time. I'm really open to finding and using a new or different screen capture pgm. I just haven't found it yet. Not to take anything away from Snipaste cuz in fact it is a good app and easy to use.

Just gave this a try and I'm quite impressed!

You can tell that the developer used Photoshop as an inspiration and it shows.

A shame that the developer has ceased work on it, but for a 4.79 MB app, it's way more than I initially expected.

Perhaps the best Photoshop clone you've never heard of. Recommended!

quote @tc: You can stop the intro photo by editing photoscape.cfg, and turning intro.photoOn from on to off. You could also edit the url, to point to a local image

I installed on USB with 7zip.
In addition to tc's message: if you make photoscape.cfg read-only, it will keep it's settings in the cfg file.

I also deleted the plugins dir (unwanted toolbar in there), and renamed the file PSMsgHook.dll in the main folder to PSMsgHook.dllold.

Although I've moved over to freeware options for most things I do, I've maintained use of Microsoft Photo Manager for years when working on my own photo collection. Today however, I was on a machine without it so I got PhotoScape up and found I actually prefer it.

webfork on 2015-02-26 23:23

Every few months I discover something new and cool with this program.  Animated GIF tricks, photo edit functions, framing tricks, and photo collages. Today it was dragging and dropping an image onto the program icon and seeing the wealth of edition, annotation, and symbol tools available.
