Get the last FREE version of FastStone Capture

A screen capture utility is a “must have” on any PC (or flash drive); especially if you are a writer, blogger, graphic designer, desktop publisher, etc… I have tried and tested many of the capture utilities and the one that has set well with me is “FastStone Capture”.  FastStone Capture went commercial after version 5.3; however, the freeware version is still available at various sites around the internet.  This little utility is a well thought out screen capture utility. It  is no wonder the author opted to go commercial with it. I highly suggest purchasing this screen capture utility if you can; but, if you can’t, follow the instructions below to get the last “FREE” version.

Before I tell you where you can get FastStone Capture (the last freeware version), let me give you some hightlights. The download that I will refer you to is a download for the portable version that can be installed on your flash drive or into a folder of your choice on your PC. This way, if you do not like it, simply delete the folder; but I’m telling you this little app rocks and is very easy to use.

FastStone Capture uses very little screen space and provides (6) different screen capture modes (see below) that can be activated by clicking one of the mode buttons in the application or by using hotkey combinations on your keyboard.

1. Capture Active Window

2. Capture Window /Object

3. Capture Rectangle Region

4. Capture Freehand Region

5. Capture Full Screen

6. Capture Scrolling Window

With FastStone Capture you have the option of sending the captured result to a built in graphic editor, to the clipboard, to a file, to the printer, or to an email (as an attachment).  The output file can be saved to the most common graphic file formats (e.g. gif, png, bmp, jpg, tif) or as a PDF file. Settings are also available that allow you to auto capture to an edge/watermark or to prompt you each time to assign a caption or label to your captured result.  This little app also features a built-in graphic editor, a screen magnifier and a screen color picker.

If you do not have this app, I suggest you get it now…  You can download FastStone Capture (last freeware version) [ HERE ] .

Kudos to the author of FastStone Capture for making such a wonderful application.

Design presentations, social media graphics, and more with thousands of beautiful layouts with Canva …

Canva is my “go to” online app for desktop publishing and graphic design. There is a FREE and paid option to Canva and I have found that you can create stunning results with the FREE version as long as you use the graphics that are marked as free (and there are thousands of them). I often use graphics I find on the internet to plugin (copy/paste) to whatever project I am working on. Canva can also be downloaded and installed as a Windows and Mac application; but, I typically use Canva in my web browser on my Chromebook. With Canva you can let your imagination flow to create signs, cards, logos, newsletters, resumes, infographics, social media headers, and posts, etc … Give it a try; you will be impressed!
