SliQ Screen Capture lets you quickly and easily take screenshots and
save them to disk. SliQ Screen Capture also lets you quickly capture
a screenshot of an application and open the captured image in an
editor where you can add text annotations and labels.
We use SliQ Screen Capture in-house at SliQTools to aid us write
help documentation. We thought the program could be generally useful
to our customers so we decided to give the program away for free.
Taking screenshots in Windows isn't particularly difficult using
keyboard shortcuts. However, where SliQ Screen Capture helps is by
automatically saving the image to a file, copying it to the
clipboard so you can paste it into a Word document (for example) or
opening the image for editing in your favourite image editor. SliQ
Screen Capture also makes it easy to select a portion of the desktop
so you don't have to spend time opening the image in an editor and
cropping the image.
And of course, SliQ Screen Capture is completely free!

Viewer. You can make SliQ Screen Capture launch a different viewer
by choosing the Configure Viewer Program option in
the Options menu (shown above) to launch the Viewer Program dialog.
The Viewer Program dialog lets you enter a command to launch your
favourite image editor or clear the current command to restore the
default image viewer.
The dropdown on the Viewer Program contains a couple of default
options for launching Microsoft Paint or Microsoft Paint.Net.
Microsoft Paint is available on all Windows PCs so this option will
always for work for launching an image editor but if you want to use
Paint.Net you'll need to download it from:
