I do a lot of Powerpoint slide graphic creation and design for my church and training presentations for my work. I would be at a loss if I did not have in my toolbox a good “all round” screen capture utility that allowed me to manipulate screen captures, pick colors, edit images, etc. Many of the screen capture apps that are multi-functional are often found at a price.
One screen capture app that I have been closely monitoring is called PicPick Tools. This little application can be installed on your PC or used as a portable app on your flash drive. Most recently I have noticed that PicPick development has picked up with additional features being added. My experience with this app is that it is closing in on some of the commercial apps that are out there’; AND for me personally, PicPick is becoming a mainstay application on my PC that I use to compliment my blogging and Powerpoint slide building.
If you do not have a screen capture utility installed on your PC, I suggest you give this one try – [ GET IT HERE ] .
