Windows 7: Looking for a screenshot capture application

Looking for a screenshot capture application

I've used greenshot in the past but it don't work on Win 7 and the author don't reply my support request. I would like to be able to capture the active window so I don't have to trimm things by hand. Greenshot trimms too much of the borders, here is a screenshot where you can see the issue:

Alt-Print Sc will copy the active window to the clipboard.
Windows 7 has the snipping tool built in (type snip into the start search)

if you don't mind paying a little ($18), i would suggest looking into Window Clippings. it can capture the transparency of aero window borders, and can save them as transparent PNGs. it's also great at capturing menus. it all happens via a right-click menu that becomes available when you hit the special hotkey, so there's no GUI to get in the way.

Thanks Barman58 and garbanzo, I didn't know about the snipping tool, it has the same issue then greenshot and probably most other capture tools. I hope there will be a free alternative to Window Clippings.

Hi,

If you want you could have a look at faststone capture which is freeware for personal use

A+ Freeware - Multimedia & Design - FastStone Capture 5.3 (last freeware version)

I use FastStone Capture.
6.3 is shareware, 5.3 was the last freeware version they released.
Does what you want and more.

And really doesn't overcrop Aero borders like the other capture tools?

Probably because of third party software.
