torbengb Posted July 3, 2009 Author Share Posted July 3, 2009 Hello all! At my place of work, we need the capability to take application screenshots and annotate them with frames, arrows, and texts. We don't need anything fancy, it's not for publication but for bug tracking. We wanted to get something like SnagIt or FastStone Capture, but this was denied based on cost ($14 per seat...). I've already tested a number of freeware capture tools but they don't annotate well enough. 1) Can Paint.NET be used as a sensible replacement? I'm afraid that it's total overkill... (I can't test this because it doesn't run on Win2000, but we are going to upgrade to WinXP soonish - yes we're at the bleeding edge of technology...) 2) How would this work -- I do a normal PrtScrn of the entire screen and paste it into Paint.NET where I crop the relevant part and add frames,arrows,texts as vector items -- right? I'm concerned that the learning curve for normal staff is much too steep. All we need is a way to annotate screenshots, but Paint.NET can do so much more. What are your thoughts?
