Microsoft Printscreen function isn’t the best on the planet! The image is of very low resolution and not top class.
So a good alternative for it is Greenshot.
It is a very simple tool and I use it personally when taking screenshots for different blog posts. Being easy to understand and configurable, Greenshot is an efficient tool for project managers, software developers, technical writers, testers and anyone else creating screenshots. And best of all its completely free!
Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool for Windows with the following key features:
- Create complete or partial screenshots quickly.
- Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.
- Send the screenshot to a file, the clipboard, a printer or as e-mail attachment.
