Last week, I bought new software that I really like. It is called SnagIt. It allows you to capture screenshots. I had heard about it at the User Interface conference I attended in Boston earlier this month.
I downloaded a trial version and after using it once, decided to buy it. What I really like about it is that you can take a screenshot of a website and scroll down to capture the entire length of the page, which you cannot do by just doing a print screen in Windows. Also, it is smart enough that you can just capture a certain element on your screen. This cuts down on the process of having to go into my graphic editing program to cut down images to just what I want.
You can also apply effects like torn edge with SnagIt. For $40, it is a nice little program.
