Version 5.2 - (free update)

New Quick Save tool ends fear of not being able to find screenshots.

CaptureWiz makes grabbing screenshots so easy that they accumulate quickly and soon you can’t find the ones you want. Just ten screenshots a day piles up over three thousand images a year! Well fear not collectors, the new Quick Save tool enables you to easily create, save and recover screenshots by category. Your screenshots are saved permanently and privately. While older versions could do that using the Windows SaveAs dialog, we found for most customers this method was non-intuitive and too much effort. We think the new Quick Save tool solves the problem with its smart entry fields and one-click save button, but you be the judge.

Borderless sticky notes.
Users told us they found great uses for naked (borderless) sticky notes. Now you can set naked as default. As a silly example, you could capture one person's face and stick it over another's, you decide, without using Photoshop. It’s a simple way to create graphical notes that can be arranged any way you like, right on the desktop.

Borderless sticky notes

Save screenshots to the desktop with one click.
Version 5.2 also adds a Desktop button to the output toolbar. Use it to save screenshots directly to your desktop, which saves a few keystrokes over using the SaveAs dialog. It’s an easy way to keep screenshots where they’ll be easily seen and found, but not covering everything else like sticky notes.

Desktop Button

Print brighter or darker.
In prior versions, large screenshots sometimes printed too lightly. CaptureWiz now applies a “gamma correction” to fix this.

Printout brightness

Network drives remembered.
Prior versions of CaptureWiz didn’t remember network drives. Now it suggests those drives as default next time.
