With Bug Shooting, creating screen captures and sending them to various bug tracking and issue management systems, e-mail, image editing and instant messaging applications is done in a breeze.

Intelligent capture mode

  • With the intelligent capture mode, it is as simple as never before to capture the screen. You can capture an area, a window, or the full screen, without having to change the capture mode. Try it out, you will love it.
  • Magnifier supports you during the capture and allow pixel-fine region selection.

Edit functions

  • Create professional graphics by adding different effects to your screenshots. Add text, arrows or other graphics.
  • The tool gallery gives you easy and quick access to frequently used tools. The gallery may be adapted to your needs.
  • Screenshots sometimes contain secret information (e.g. passwords) that should not be passed on. With the blur tool you can hide such information by blurring them so they cannot be recognized.
