Professional Screen Capture software

Can anyone reccommend a UK product for screen capture software with edit and share facilities. Need to produce training manuals, paper and on screen. I know there are a lot out there but have no idea if any good. Thanks.

Not UK I'm afraid, but have a look at Snagit by Tech Smith. I have used it for a long while when compiling instructions etc. Has a great advantage as far as I am concerned in that one can annotate screen grabs.

assumin you meant the basiv captur of screen imahe [Ctrl/PrtScr

Any good Graphics editor will handle screen capture
items these being simply Bitmap or JPEG captures.
So the Free picasa or photofiltre or a paid for item of which there are many
Photoshop Elements, Paintshop Pro, ane of the host of Serif products.
I have been trawling my collection of utilities of a 'screen movie' program that I once had that allowed the cursor to travel and folders open to windows- but it eludes me at the moment.
If I can recall it I will come back

Used SnagIt for years, my freeware version still excellant. It will also scroll capture a continuous web page of the eqiuivalent of many pages of say A4 as well. David

is called Faststone Capture for Windows and can be dowloaded from click here

Does most of what I used to use Snagit for, and is free for home use.

It's a slick piece of kit with a small footprint.

It even has a built-in editor program for modifying the captured image, such as adding call-outs or annotations etc.

The reason I use it, it's a "portable application", meaning it needs no "installation" on the PC, so will run happily from a USB stick.

I'm not in any way connected with Faststone, it's just that I like this program

I'll second the free faststone capture; I changed from Snagit to faststone.
