Snapshot Magic Description
Since there is usually a lot of activity taking place on your desktop every time you use the computer, it can be useful to able to capture certain actions, by taking snapshots. Hence, these screenshots can be saved to the desired location on your hard disk and viewed whenever you need to use or present the information contained into the image files.
Take snapshots of your entire desktop screen
Snapshot Magic is a software utility designed to provide you with the ability to capture images of your desktop whenever you need to do so, using a simple mouse click to trigger the snapshot. In addition, you can also choose to target the entire screen, or focus on a single window, in case you do not want the entire desktop to be visible in the resulting picture.
Right from the bat, it is worth mentioning that there are no keyboard shortcuts you can use to speedup the process, which means that you are required to use the application's drop-down menu to make the capture. Thus, the fact that the actual screenshot is triggered by a simple mouse click loses its impact, since the time saved by doing so is evened out by the fact that you have to navigate through the utility to locate the appropriate button.
Crop and resize the resulting pictures
Once the images are captured, the application also enables you to bring a few modifications to them, using the included editing tools. Hence, the crop option can be used to select the desired part of the image to be cut from the original, in case you only need a specific portion for your purposes.
In addition, the resize tool comes into play whenever you are not satisfied with the resolution of the snapshots, by allowing you to easily scale them down to the desired proportions. To achieve this, you simply have to choose the percentage by which the picture is to be re-dimensioned, although you can only shrink the items.
A basic image capturing utility
In the end, Snapshot Magic presents itself as a simple and rather lacking image capturing utility, due to the rather limited number of features and the clunky snapshot procedure. It does, however, provide you with more than enough output formats for the captured pictures, including JPG, GIF and BMP.
