Over the years, Microsoft has bundled several useful utility apps with their flagship Windows operating systems. Sadly, screen capturing is not one of them. Sure, you can press “Prnt Scrn” and paste it in Paint as you’ve always done, but it doesn’t work for most of us. The same applies to the half-cooked Snipping tool, shipped along with certain flavors of Windows 7.
At AppStorm, our work involves a lot of images and screenshots. We need a powerful tool to satisfy our huge appetite. Are you like us, who is in dire need for the ultimate tool to satisfy your taste buds? Look no beyond! Today, I’m going to introduce you to SnagIt, the most sought after screen recording platform.

Today, we’re going to take a look at a very light-weight utility, Shotty, to capture beautiful screenshots. Join me after the jump to find out how it works.
There are numerous reasons why you might want to take screenshots of what is happening on your desktop. If you are creating a tutorial guiding people through a particular task, screenshots are perfect for illustrating things in a way that everyone can understand. If you have a blog and you decide to review a web site or a game, you’ll probably want to include screenshots.
There’s nothing to stop you from simply hitting the Print Screen key on your keyboard and pasting the image from the clipboard into your favorite image editor, and if you have Windows 7, you could use the Snipping Tool to gain access to a few more options. But if you want complete control over the screen capture process, you might be interested in taking a look at Screenshot Captor.
