A screenshot is always a point of reference to what happens on the screen. The limitation of a screenshot is that it captures the entire screen. There are cases you just need a part of the screen which lacks in the default snipping tool. This is an app that allows you to navigate the mouse to only capture what you need. It uses the keyboard to achieve this in that the f1 key captures the screen while the f3 button pastes it on the desired location.
Just like an image file, there are a few formatting functions you can run on it. They include zoom in and out, rotate, flip as well as the inclusion of visual elements which include background color and use of a highlighter to draw ones attention. When it comes to snipping you have control over the pixel level.
You can playback to undo the previous functions as well as multiple screen support. On the new screen where you paste the image, you can save it as a plain text or an image file or colored text or an HTML format. You access all these menus using a right mouse click. The vibrant edit editor supported on the app slows you to make changes such that you save the final document as you desire.
