Ashampoo Snap is an old-brand and powerful screenshot & screen capture tool from Germany, if you are already getting fed up with TechSmith’s Snagit on Windows, then try Ashampoo Snap’s innovation way for producing, editing and sharing the screenshot and screen capture.

Both FastStone Capture and PicPick are free and popular, but they just can not support the browser and system very well, so that the generated screenshots for scrolling window are mostly disordered or corrupted. In AppNee’s opinion, even for the most popular and powerful Snagit, it has 3 critical defects at least: does not support batch images editing (especially the modification of image size); its scrolling window capture feature is finding fault with different browsers; as well as the “Unable to complete scrolling capture” problem without a valid and reliable method all long (there is no guarantee for the official method at all, that only depends on your luck).

If it weren’t that Snagit so repeatedly appear the above mentioned problems that can’t work, and then forced me to look for alternatives and test, I still have no chance to face Ashampoo Snap’s so much superiority – it’s really cool and powerful. In addition, as far as I know, it is also the only one in similar screen/video capturing tools that supports OCR text recognition and collages creating.
