Today's Giveaway of the Day: WinSnap

Giveaway of the Day, as its name suggests, gives away one software title every day, titles that normally cost money. We're not talking hunded dollar applications; the individual values are anywhere between $12 and $30 or so. But if you consider that you can get a different application every day, the values do add up. You certainly won't want to download every title available, but if you check back here daily (Givaway's daily title can be viewed on my sidebar), I'm sure you'll see some that you really need.

Today's Giveaway is called WinSnap. Windows comes with a very rudimentary, and mostly useless, Printscreen capability. WinSnap adds a plethora of additional capabilities. Some of them are:
  • Flexible screen capture capabilities
  • Smoothing shadow effect in Photoshop style
  • Powerful image processing and basic canvas transformations
  • Support of various image formats and advanced auto-save features
  • Easy Web publishing and E-Mail sending
  • Usual keyboard and mouse control (Print Screen replacement)
  • Small and fast for an image editor, smaller than Paint
  • Multilingual user interface (24+ languages)
If you ever need to capture an image of any part of what's on your screen, this is a darn good way to go about it. As a blogger I use it several times a day to add a graphic to my posts. I'll bet you can think of several uses for this utility. Get it here, but keep in mind it's only available for free today.
