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.

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.

smaragdus: updated, thanks.

@wkm @freewaretester ShareX can do scrolling capture now.

@freewaretester It can already record sound and can open image in any image editor including Paint but without save image to file you can't give image to Paint because it expects file path.

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.
