Snappy: Capture Screenshots On Time, Mouse & Keyboard Events

A lot of different screenshot tools tend to offer different options for taking screenshots. Some of them are good for grabbing screen area, some work best for capturing whole windows, while others are useful when you want to take scrollable screenshots of webpages. However, a screenshot tool can only have so many options. Since these applications are mostly focused on capturing screenshots, while their image editors don’t have a lot of options. Snappy is a desktop-capture software for Windows that allows users to capture the screen of your computer and edit the image, such as its RGB settings, brightness, contrast etc. It also features a very interest “Event Capture” option, allowing you to take a screenshot of your desktop when specified events occur. Moreover, it also allows you to export the screenshots in BMP, JPEG, PNG, PDF, XML and AVI formats. More on Snappy after the break.

The main interface of the application displays all the captured images on the left side, the selected photo appears in the center while the controls to edit an image, like RGB values, Brightness, Contrast and Color, appear on the right side. Menus, such as Images, Capture, Image and Tools, containing different capture and edit options, are available at the top.
