Capture is a screen capture program for Windows, Linux and MacOS. I made it to replace the Windows Tool 'Snipping Tool' after it was removed by Microsoft in one of their latest unending updates.


When you run Capture, you are given a small popup window. You can choose between a screenshot straight away, or a timed screenshot. You can then draw a rectangle to crop just a section of the screenshot, or just leave the selection as full screen. You then press the return key to confirm and the screenshot is saved to your desktop. (or you could press 'escape' to try again in case you missed what you were trying to capture.)


Download Capture for 64bit Windows, or this one for MacOS 64bit (osx 10.7 upwards). I also made a version for 32bit Linux and 64bit Linux (debian) too.


Capture is free.
