CaptureWizPro Screen Capture, by PixelMetricsis a powerful program for capturing not only your screen and graphicsimages, but audio and video as well! The program has an intuitive userinterface and is easy-to-use. To me, that makes it perfect for both newand experienced users. I really like the interface because it gives youlots of options, and I like options. Like similar programs you can fireit up using a hot key. Ahh, but if you want the program will putup a "capture bar" that disappears when you don't need it. Slick!

The tools composing CaptureWizPro Screen Capture appear and arevisible to you no matter what color background you have. From there, theprogram actually guides you through the steps to do your screen capture.And it knows no fear, it could capture everything I tried it on,including some screen savers, which some similar products can't capture.I found that it could also capture menu items and drop-down menus, whichsome programs can't grab either. You can save captures in a variety ofways. You can save to files in a number of popular formats includingJPG, GIF, BMP, and PNG. You can also print, send your capture to a"sticky note" that will sit on your desktop, or even put it in theclipboard. Very nice.

With disappearing capture menu CaptureWizPro Screen Capture makesit easy to change capture options on-the-fly. You don't have to go intoa setup area, you can just click the option you want and viola, you haveit. You can capture a region, a window, the whole screen, and even avery long or wide screen. And the "sticky note" option is verycool and innovative. For example, you can see something of interest on aWeb page, capture it to a sticky note and read it later. You can easilyemail your captures as well because the program has an option that willattach your captures to an email message.

Need an image editor? CaptureWizPro comes with one built rightin. The program is impressive to me because it has a number or reallyoriginal and innovative features. It gives you lots of optionsand it's so easy-to-use. You can capture video off your desktop, theInternet and more. And if you want, you can record audio on-the-fly aswell. With a microphone hooked up you can record quick notes to yourselfand listen to them later. Very neat.

CaptureWizPro is an impressive program that's loaded with coolfeatures. It has all the things you'd expect from a "screen capture"program, and many things you wouldn't expect. I like it so much thatit's not just a Pick, but I'm also making it one of my Dr. File Finder Favorites and those are fewand far between. So, if you want to capture screens, audio, video, andlots more, check it out. I recommend it.
