Capture the screen and edit stills and video

Ashampoo Snap is a feature rich screen capturing tool, for taking screenshots and screencasts.

Like most screen capture tools, you can set hot keys for many of the capture features with Ashampoo Snap. You can choose to capture a window, fixed region, scrolling window, a free style region and more. You can also choose the output format, BMP, JPG, PNG or PDF. Once you've take your shot, there is a basic editing suite, where you can add some effects, text, arrows and so on. The interface is unusual, but really easy to use.

With video capture, Ashampoo Snap is also really easy - choose what you want to capture, whether it's the full desktop, a portion, or a particular application, and click start. And if you want to capture onscreen video, there's a special setting on Ashampoo Snap for that too.

Ashampoo Snap is not the simplest capture application available, but it's certainly rich in features, and is well designed. The video capture is really good, and makes simple screencasts and tutorials really easy to do. It's by no means a professional video editing studio, but for most people it will do just fine.

Ashampoo Snap is a a great mid-range application, with enough features for most users, and nice interfaces.

Ashampoo Snap creates, edits and sends screenshots and videos. It can capture anything visible on your computer screen. Numerous features such as picture in picture, timers and text recognition extend the feature range well beyond traditional screenshot tools.

    Very disappointed.
    Not much.
    After having paid for it, downloaded it, installed it my computer crashed as it had never crashed before.>I was unable to reboot and using Safe Mode I did a system restore and uninstalled the program. That did not do any good!
    As last resource I reinstalled Windows.
    Please return my money.
    I have always been happy with the products I have bought from you but this one was garbage as far as I am concerned. More
