SN WinShot is a screenshot grabbing utility capable of capturing active windows or objects and custom regions, copying them to the Clipboard, and saving them as BMP, GIF or JPEG files.
It comes packed with handy customization properties that can be easily handled by all types of users, even those less experienced with such tools.
Simple installation and UI
The setup operation is a fast and easy job that shouldn't give you any trouble. As for the interface, SN WinShot opts for a small window with few buttons, enabling you to capture a region, active window or objects, repeat the last capture, copy the images to the Clipboard, and configure program settings.
Preview and customize captured graphics
A magnification tool is put at your disposal when attempting to create custom regions, and you can also check out the RGB channels of the current color at the mouse cursor to be able to replicate it.
The application shows the grabbed image in a preview window, where you can either keep or disregard it, as well as tinker with the settings. You can set a background color, resize the picture, apply dropshadow and tweak the effect's settings, pick the image file format, compress the pictures, apply transparency, control highlights, as well as create and save profiles as INI configuration files.
Evaluation and conclusion
It worked smoothly in our tests, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or prompt error messages. Unsurprisingly, it didn't put a strain on the overall performance of the computer, thanks to the fact that it needed a low amount of CPU and RAM to work properly.
To sum it up, SN WinShot provides you with a fast and effective solution for taking snapshots in several formats, configuring settings, and creating profiles. It's geared toward all user levels.
