Most computers have the 'Print Screen' feature, which allows you to easily take a snapshot of the content of your screen. However, this method leaves you with very limited options. Ashampoo Snap will let you capture either single shots or videos and edit the screen contents to suit your liking. The software includes many visual tools for performing various tasks easily.

Using Ashampoo Snap

Ashampoo Snap supported many languages, and we selected the language we wanted during the installation process. To complete the installation, we needed to enter a license key, and we received a free key by providing our e-mail address. We could use the same account to access different Ashampoo products.

The welcome screen, which always stayed on top, gave us basic information on how to use the program. Particularly, the help screen highlighted how to control the application which included the location of the Capture Bar and the SysTray Icon.

We accessed the Capture Bar by moving the mouse pointer to the upper screen border. This process displayed the capture bar whenever we wanted to either start or stop a capture. The Capture Bar also allowed us to access advanced options, the Edit Mode / Stop Capture feature, and the program settings. The settings allowed us to perform several functions, including changing the interface skin, customizing the size of the Fixed Region and Custom Region capture, which browsers to monitor for copied photos, making adjustments to the Edit Mode and more.

We could access the program whenever we wanted by clicking its icon in the System Tray. Clicking it displayed a pop-up menu where we could select the capture option we wanted.

The program featured different capture methods, including a Video, Scrolling Window, Internet Explorer/Chrome Website, a Single Window, Free Rectangle Region, Freestyle Region, Fixed Region, or a Menu. We used the left mouse button to capture what we wanted while clicking the right button canceled the process.

Once we had captured what we wanted, the program intuitively displayed different tools that we could use to make necessary edits to the capture image or video. The three toolsets included: The Action Bar, Tools Bar, and the Image Bar.

The Action Bar on the right border allowed us to choose what we wanted to do with our capture, such as keeping or erasing it, copying it to the Clipboard, printing or sending it via e-mail, sharing it on Facebook or Twitter, exporting the capture to PSD format, and more. The program immediately executed the selected option without any further prompt, which meant that we had to choose carefully to avoid mistakes.

The Tools Bar appeared on the left side. That was where we selected the type of editing we wanted, including erasing, cropping, highlighting as well as drawing rectangles and text. We clicked on the tool we wanted and dragged the cursor to the position where we wanted to perform its task.

On the upper border of the screen was the Image Bar, from where we could cut a selection, rename the capture or undo the last step, and apply various effects to the capture among a few other useful features.


Ashampoo Snap is an excellent screen capture tool that provides numerous ways of capturing and editing screen content. The software works on any computer that runs Windows 7 or higher operating system at a reasonable speed, with a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768 and at least 16-bit High color and 64MB RAM. This means you can run it on any modern PC.
