sniptool Description

sniptool iconsniptool is a fresh project for Windows users interested in a simple and straightforward screenshot grabber. It’s wrapped in a tiny package, requires no installation, and comes bundled with annotation tools.

Take screenshots to save as PNG or JPG images

The snipping app puts emphasis on looks, adopting a sleek interface with a well-organized menu that provides quick access to the grabber, annotation features and image saving options. A handful of settings can be configured by clicking a button on the lower-left corner of the window.

Two screenshots modes can be used: draw a rectangular area or freely draw anywhere on the screen. However, we’ve noticed an issue in this regard: the newest capture does not replace the previous one but overlaps it instead, which means that you can end up with a weird combination of two shots. To fix this, you have to select and delete the previous shot.

Draw with a pencil, attach watermarks, and use other annotation tools

You can check out the shot size on the bottom size (height and weight), highlight parts of the image that you would like to shift focus to, draw with a pencil, create empty or full rectangular shapes, insert external photos such as watermarks, write text, and apply blur effect to any areas.

Several color options are available for the pencil, highlighter and text (but not the entire color spectrum). Furthermore, you can pick the text font, size and background color, as well as change the size of the pencil, highlighted and rectangle from the settings panel.

As far as output options are concerned, it’s possible to copy the whole photo to the clipboard or save it to a file with PNG or JPG format.

Unstable screenshot grabber with room for improvement

Besides the previously mentioned issues, sniptool has a very slow response time when trying out the annotation tools, making it difficult to use them accurately. This is understandable, though, since it hasn’t reached stable development stage yet. On the other hand, it means that it’s not yet ready for the public.

  1. Hello, first I want to thank you for your work, this tool is really useful !

    I would like also to point out a few problems that I’ve encountered and some ideas :

    – When recording a video fullscreen on a secondary screen, the button to stop or cancel is hidden (in my case behind the ‘start’ bar)
    – There’s a no button or keyboard shortcut to stop the video recordings or start it right away
    – There’s no option to reduce SnipTool in the taskbar (to stop the recording for exemple)
    – A ‘little’ video editor would be great to cut the beginning and the end of the recordings.
    – An option to change the capture directory and put everything inside would be more practical.
    – A countdown of the remaining time avaible on the disk while recording videos.

    Thank you again, and I hope that my comment will be helpful.
