PROS / This software captures images in many different shapes.
CONS / It lacks the ability to capture video.
VERDICT / ScreenHunter Pro is great screen capture software for anyone who needs to capture and edit images and screenshots, but its lack of video capture holds it back.
ScreenHunter Pro is easy to use and works well to capture images, objects, entire screens, webpages and much more. It is solidly made screen capture software with a host of features, capture options and editing tools to manipulate, enhance and prepare images for presentations, lectures, instruction manuals and other projects.
One of the best features of this screen recorder is its main user console. The 10 capture options let you take screenshots in nearly any shape or size you want. Capture options include Rectangular Area; Fixed Area; Window, Object or Menu; Scrolling Window or Web; Active Window; Specific Window; Full Screen; Video Screen; Webcam or Scan; and Freehand. It does not offer video capture.
The process of capturing a screenshot is easy. However, this screen recording software only receives an average system performance score because of the difficulty we had managing its features. It was not fast enough and the features, including the editing tools and hard-to-implement special effects, did not perform well enough to warrant a top score.
The ScreenHunter Image Editor is a full-service editing console, and you can insert text to explain or illuminate screenshots. Using this software, you can add artistic effects to your images. For example, the Patterned Glass effect makes images look as if they are being seen through an obscured bathroom window. You can also use the Erode function, which allows you to cut out rectangular or square sections of photos and slide them somewhere else on the image. These are purely for artistic effect.
In addition, you can change images to grayscale, as well as alter their brightness and contrast. This screenshot software lets you rotate screenshots, and you can mirror images or flip them. You can add borders, crop and resize all the images captured from your screen.
ScreenHunter Pro does not have batch file conversion, which allows you to change multiple files in one batch to the same file type. This exclusion is odd considering the software has so many other conveniences. Still, it offers a full quiver of features. It lets you import images from outside sources, such as cameras and scanners, and you can print multiple-page layouts. ScreenHunter Pro has a quick toolbar that lets you work with any image or screenshot smoothly and efficiently.
The manufacturer of this screen capture software offers phone and email support, and it has FAQs and step-by-step guides on its website. The online material is flush with screenshots showing tips and techniques for using the software. Ordering, installation, licensing, upgrades, compatibility and troubleshooting are all explained online.
ScreenHunter Pro is screen capture software worth a look at if you need simple capture functions. It offers many features and options for capturing and saving screenshots, objects, windows and images from your computer's screen and from the web in a variety of shapes. It's useful for editing and altering those images, and you can also add text and other features for presentations, reports, slideshows or anything else you need to create. It lacks video capture, but it suits many needs for screen capture software.
