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.

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.
