QuickScreenShots 2 / Home

QuickScreenShots 2 aims at making taking screenshots as quick and efficient as possible. Take screenshots of the full screen, of the active window or of a custom region, apply it effects such as adding a drop down shadow or making it black & white, copy it to the clipboard and save it on disk, only in one step. Then, draw on it if needed.
