HotShots is a straightforward software utility which helps individuals take snapshots of the desktop, windows or specified regions.
Support for a number of different formats is available, such as PNG, BMP, PBM and XPM. Aside from that, the program lets you copy the screen capture to the Clipboard or upload it directly to websites, including FreeImageHosting, Imgur, Imageshack and CanardPC.
The interface has a modern design and it presents a number of shortcut buttons for all the available actions. From the main window you can choose the output path, capture mode and what to do after snapshot (autosave, launch editor, save by asking user). The language can be detected automatically or the user can select it.
Timestamps can be inserted in the filename, the scale of the screen capture is customizable or it can be rotated at a user-inputted angle. When the action is finished, this software tool can play a sound, as well as add visual effects to the resulted image, such as drop shadow, progressive opacity and torn edge.
There are some keyboard shortcuts appointed to each type of snapshot, yet changing them is possible, thus enhancing ease of use. The editor permits different types of annotations, including text, lines, highlights, and the list goes on.
All in all, HotShots is a useful piece of software that enables you to easily capture parts of the screen, edit the resulted pictures and save or upload them to the Internet. CPU and memory usage is minimal and, during our tests, there were no bugs or crashes registered.
