Capture your screen for free

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

There are plenty of software to capture your screen, but mostly for a huge fee or an ugly "UNREGISTERED VERSION" on the upper left corner. But why should we buy those when we can have better software for free? There are refined such screen capture software under the GPL license, meaning you can obtain them for free.

For still capturing:
[FastStone Screen Capture] The best screen capturing software I've used, it's simplistic yet functions well. There are choices of capturing full screen, window, rectangle, and even free hand tools. The official website provides a no-installation download for better portability. The captured image can be saved in traditional formats such as JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, and new formats such as JPEG2000(*.JP2) and JPEG2000 Code Stream(*.J2K). There are simple (really simple) draw tools to modify the image, and you can use the program's integrated email function to email the image with the help of an external email client.

For movie capturing:
[CamStudio] A screen capture application for Microsoft Windows (open source). CamStudio is a simple, straightforward program to record screen activity to AVI or SWF format. You can also record audio from your speakers or microphone. CamStudio is also available on SourceForge. Camstudio is in fact a simple no joke software without much sophisticated features, but the basic job is well achieved.
