HotShots can capture your screen and further edit the screenshot. While suited for writing documentation and highlighting important aspects of a map image, this capture tool covers more than the basics.

It can capture multi-monitor images, the desired desktop area, or the opened window. You can choose in what format to save the images, starting with JPG and PNG and ending with BMP.

Scaling and other post-processing edits come useful when you add a drop shadow, borders, etc. Once you have done that, saving the images is done automatically. While working in the background on low system resources, it also launches itself at the start-up.

Several other parameters offer background colors, file name settings, and decoration capture.

HotShots features and benefits:
  • Grab current screen, all monitors (in case of multi-monitors configuration), current window or a part of the desktop
  • Save the screenshot in multiple formats (PNG, JPG, BMP, etc)
  • Automatically save the screenshot to clipboard, disk or launch the editor tool
  • Export edited image in multiple formats (PNG, JPG, BMP, etc)
  • Save/Restore edited image in proprietary format
  • Send image directly to printer
  • Automatically scale the screenshot to a given size
  • Use system shortcuts to take a screenshot
  • Add automatically some post-effects to the screenshot (drop shadow, rotation, border, etc)
  • Can be minimized to system tray and work in background
  • Can be launched at system start-up
