I imagine everyone writing on the web or developing software needs to do a screen shot every once in a while. I also don’t want to pay $30 for something I only use every once in a while. So I ran across this cool project from CodePlex.
It is called Cropper. http://cropper.codeplex.com/
You can give it a shot. It’s free and it works. It drops the area of the screen you pick to the disk or clipboard in the format of your choice.
Share the knowledge, as knowledge is freedom!
