Print Screen Utility

Published on 09 November 2008

I was introduced to the following utility by a colleague at work:

It is a very useful utility, that is very unobtrusive, and I can see me using it on a daily basis.

It basically takes over when you press the “Print Screen” key on your keyboard, and allows you to perform additional activities, such as:

  • crop only a selected rectangle
  • crop only a selected area by drawing a “lasso” around the desired area
  • draw lines onto the selected area, i.e. an arrow, or some text
  • drag the highlighted area into other applications, such as Skype, MSN etc
  • open the image directly in your default image application
  • direct the image directly to an email or your clipboard

Overall, it is very, very clever!!! And I highly recommend it.
