Screenpresso : Application that records Screencasts

Because I often write reviews for software and websites, I need to take screenshots as reference images to explain my point. While I have been blogging, I have come across various screenshot applications that offer a unique set of features. For a long time I had not discovered an impressive screenshot application. But then I found Screenpresso.


Screenpresso is an amazing screenshot application for Windows that lets you capture screenshots and record screencasts. After its installation, it runs in the background with its icon visible in the System Tray. When you press the “Print Screen” button on the keyboard, a cursor shows up through which you can capture an area of your screen. Also displayed are the pixel dimensions of the area and a magnified view of the point your cursor is over.


When you take capture an image the Screenpresso window pops up with that displays a list of the screenshots you took. After selecting an image in this window you can edit it in a picture editing program of your choice and save it as some other file, or share it one of many online social networks.


Screenpresso’s options let you control the image quality, image format, and add effects on the screenshots you take. The program also serves as an excellent screencast tool through which you can record the entire screen or only a portion of it. The screencast can be saved as a separate file and viewed in Screenpresso’s own player or a media player of your choice.


Normally I had to use two separate programs for screenshots and screencasts, but this 2-in-1 solution has certainly simplified things. I am sure you will find Screenpresso as helpful as I did.
