SnapIt 3.7 by Digeus


SnapIt 3.7 is a nice little screen capture utility.

Here’s the URL:

With this little app you can grab photos from anywhere to post into your blog just as quick as a bunny. SnapIt has two modes of operation – automatic or manual. You can choose which mode to work in through the Properties menu. Right-click on the camera icon in the Tray and select ‘Properties’. Choose a Hot Key to start the Snap. The default is the Print Screen button, but you can select any button on the keyboard. Then specify a folder to store your snaps and select a file format from the 5 available; JPG, TFF, BMP, GIF or PNG. You also select a file name prefix – say, “snap”, and a number generation system such as 01, 02 and so on. You have two choices here – it can be Incremental or Random. Finally, if you want to automate the photo collection process, click the “Auto Save Images to Folder” box just under the Hot Key option at the top of the Properties dialogue box.

When you work in ‘auto’ mode all of your choices in the Properties dialogue go to work. You left-click on a photo on a web page and a cross-hair cursor appears. Crop the photo as you need and release the mouse button. Your selection is stored to the folder you chose, in the format you chose and with the file name generation system you chose. Neat, huh?

You can capture anything you see on your display – windows, menus, full screen or cropped images and even images from a video clip. Like I said, this is a neat little tool to have on hand.

In manual mode, you click on a photo, get the cross-hair cursor and crop the photo as you wish. The photo is placed in the system clipboard. You then copy/paste direct into your blog or into MS Word, your photo editor or any other application that will take it.

SnapIt 3.7 really is a handy piece of software.

Download SnapIt 3.7 from the URL above and play with it for a while. You’ll find it as handy as I do, I’m sure. Here’s another nice little option – if you post a review in your blog or on your website and send a link to your review to:, she’ll be tickled pink to send you a registration code for your copy of SnapIt.

So you get a very nice little tool, lots of people get to hear about it and it doesn’t cost you a penny. What a deal. That is a business model I can live with.


About Gary Showalter

Gary Showalter was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. He lived in Aruba, Florida and the Panama Canal Zone before joining the U.S. Army during the 1960s. Following his discharge from the Army, Mr. Showalter picked cotton in East Texas, baled hay in Ardmore Oklahoma, sold light bulbs in Los Angeles, California, and built cattle pens in Fallon, Nevada (during a blizzard, of course). After settling in Atlanta, Georgia, Mr. Showalter worked as a professional gardener before turning his hand to furniture making. In 1981, he moved to Israel, married, and raised four children while working as a furniture maker, silversmith, goldsmith, and ornamental wood turner. He served in the Israel Defense Forces Reserves for sixteen years, and when not on active duty he worked in government and private security. He has also served in senior management positions in two software development companies in Israel. During his time in Israel, Mr. Showalter published articles dealing with international terror and the Israel-Arab conflict in the Jerusalem Post, Israel national News and several political science web sites. Mr. Showalter returned to the United States in the fall of 2003, to care for an elderly parent. He published his first novel, “The Big Bend”, in the fall of 2008. His second novel, “Hog Valley”, is now in print. Mr. Showalter's third novel, “Twisted Key”, was published in the fall of 2011, and his fourth novel, "Lonesome Cove" is now available in Kindle format and should be published in paper near the end of 2012. He currently lives in Deland, Fl, where he is co-authoring "A Silent Star" with Tony Attanasio. "A Silent Star" is the true tale (though novelized, with names changed for security reasons) about the 4-person covert action team sent into Yemen to capture Osama Bin laden immediately after the bombing of the USS Cole in the Aden harbor in Yemen in October of 2000.
