HotShots Editor's Review

Screen capture software comes in handy in a number of situations, as it is. If you want to show some web content worth your interest to friends or prepare an interactive tutorial, such apps are useful. Needless to say, Windows inbuilt screen shot utility is not adequate for such needs. You will have to use feature rich third party apps. HotShots is one such small sized but capable screenshot software. It is among the top freeware screenshot capture tools and aces competition through its multiple monitor support feature.

You can opt for the software’s regular or portable version, based on your needs. It has a small sized installer that supports PCs with Windows XP and later editions. It is a multilingual app.

HotShots has a minimal and clean UI that will not make beginners confused. It creates a system tray icon. When you double click on this icon, the main UI appears. The right click menu offers quick access to various features of the app. It supports general Windows shortcut keys for capturing screenshots.

In default mode, HotShots grabs active window and generates a preview. You can also specify screen region for capturing. The users can save the grabbed screen shot in popular image formats like PNG, TIFF and JPG. You can also print the images or open them in the app’s image editor. You may upload the image to web.

The inclusion of an image editor is really useful since some captured images may need editing. The basic editing tools are there. Besides, you can add lines and texts. Cropping the image or blurring selected part of it is also possible. HotShots offers delay time for taking snapshots which is quite handy. It can also auto save image without prompting user for inputs. The configuration section lets users specify capture settings. During usage, the app does not gobble PC resources much or crashes.

Positive Points:
•    Freeware, multilingual software.
•    Sleek and minimal UI.
•    Extensive image format support.
•    Online image sharing, snapshot delay.

Negative Points:
•    Nothing as such.

HotShots is a freeware and capable screenshot capturing software that offers enough features to keep users happy. The App is user friendly, multilingual and comes in a small footprint too. It supports popular image formats and lets you grab screenshots and share or print them instantly. The snapshot delay feature is quite handy as is its integrated image editor. While the image editor is not very extensive in nature it offers most required editing tools. The app’s overall lag free performance and stability works in its favor. The app is among few screen capture apps that offer support for multiple monitors. You can try out its portable version if needed.

Rating: 3.5/5
