WinSnap v1.1.10 New

freakazoid on 26 Feb 2021

WinSnap is a small utility for taking and editing screenshots. It can easily capture screenshots of non-rectangular windows with the background of your choice, automatically perform simple canvas transformations and coloring effects, add professional Photoshop-style shadows etc. Note that if you are running this on versions of Windows before XP, you will need to place GDIPLUS.DLL in the application folder.

Note: Starting from V2.x, WinSnap is no longer free for personal use. We are linking to the last freeware version available on an alternative site. If you have a more recent freeware version, please post in forums.

Runs on:Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
License: Free for personal use
How to extract: Download the "Portable Edition" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch WinSnap.exe.
What's new?
  • New interface languages: Norwegian, Serbian, Portuguese (24+ now)
  • Palette optimization for 8-bit GIF images
  • Issues with auto-save image format were fixed

I agree with CD. This is simply the best capture tool for Windows.

The last freeware portable edition is still available from the authors site, however it is difficult to find it.

The URL to the freeware download page is ...

Starting from WinSnap version 2 is no longer free ad indicated from their forums page.

However, the portable version of 1.1.10 , which this app entry refers to, is still on the site so grab it while you can.

The hotkeys don't work.

I have used FS Capture, HoverSnap, FGWnGrab and quite a few other screen captuer utilities and this is simply the best.

Includes multiple hotkeys, drop shadow (several options), rotate, resize, watermark, choice of background color, grayscale, sepia, auto filename generation, relative paths, save to multiple formats (with options) and lastly, very stable. Add to this it's small size (140kb w/o GDI+), it's use of an application folder ini file instead of registry and/or Profile folder settings and you've got 10 out of 10!

Simply excellent.
