Screenshot Captor is designed for grabbing lots of screenshots with minimal intervention. It has multi monitor support and includes a full image explorer with full shell functionality and unsurpassed integration with external tools like graphic editors, watermarkers, etc. It also supports unique effects not seen in other capture tools including the ability to automatically locate and enhance the active window.

- [Feature] Trying to view a PDF file now shows a more informative message in statusbar and opens pdf file with external application

Most if not all other Screenshot programs have already chosen most of the options for you, and they are not changeable. Mouser's Screenshot Capture has many options to choose from, which means mouser's Screenshot Capture will do exactly what you want it to do.
Yes, you will have to learn what you want Screenshot Capture to do. It's not hard and worth the effort of the user.
A new feature of Screenshot Capture is the Caption section of mouser's program. It's in it's infancy, and as more is added to this feature, I'm quite certain that Captions will have plenty of sub-features to choose from (it already has a few). And, yes, you might have to learn a little about captions, but it will be worth it.
One of the major benefits of mouser's Screenshot Capture is it's low resource usage while idling and in use. It does what you tell it to do and then gets out of the way, sitting in the tray, not burning needed resources, ready to be called on without having to load anything else.

I've been using it a few years now, it's *hugely* customisable (to the extent it can be a bit of a pain to find stuff in the preferences--best just go through the whole lot to check out the possibilities). Lots of improvements/fixes in yesterday's update, developer is very responsive. Has been top of Gizmo's "Best Free Screen Capture Tool" for the last couple of years. Note: I guess it's not really freeware - it's donationware - you get asked to register (site/forum). I donated anyway, as I also use the auther's clipboard manager.

The average user doesn't need a program as overblown as this for simple screen captors but the real deal breaker for me was that this thing nags worse than my mother-in-law.

I've tried a ton of different programs in this category and the two standouts so fat are Snagit and Fastone Capture. Neither is free, I think I prefer Fastone a little more because it's much lighter weight. Tell me another product that handles scrolling windows capture better than Faststone. This one doesn't stand out to me. Try them both and see the difference.

I've got to be honest, I like it, but don't love it. I use to lightscreen for basic screen capture, and it did the job, much like this does, but I would often spend ages captioning the shots and open up image editors to highlight bits or remove personal info. This does the basic welll, but then so do 1001 other screen capture tools. What I found I needed was good screen capture, with mouse cursor capture, and basic editing and annotation option. Which I found in Greenshot (free). But there are so many of these tools around, everyone will have a favourite. Not knocking this, it's a solid tool that does the job well, but doesn't stand above the others either.
