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 F2 for Paste.

The developer has added a XP version. XP users- please test the XP version.

In a very short time frame this became part of my daily workflow. I'm constantly using this to quickly grab some bit of text or some image to easily reference. I run it in concert with ShareX.

This is an awesome application. I was using an autohotkey script to perform a "paste to screen" function, but this app takes it to the next step. It's so easy to edit your image with the built-in tools. And paste-to-screen lets you put an screenshot as a floating image so you can reference it - a wonderful tool for developers. I love this.

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 https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues/91, the developers basically have no interest in making this portable.

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

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.

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.
