Review
PicPick was recommended to me by Bear Bottoms, and I think I’ll thank him again for that. But let me tell you about the program first and then you’ll decide what I should do.

At a first look I was a little bit puzzled. I said to myself: “OK, is it a screenshot capture program, an image editor, a color picker, what is it?”

I opened the image posted above for editing in PicPick after I captured it with the program that I was using for that purpose, ScreenshotCaptor. PicPick offers basic editing facilities, but they are more than enough if you ask me.

The program also features a pixel ruler, a color picker, a very good screenshot capture module with scrolling support and multi screen support. There is another interesting feature called whiteboard, in which you can draw over your windows before you make the screen capture, and the output image will be processed with the lines you added on top of the window. Cool stuff.

Although it won’t replace The Gimp as my favorite image editor PicPick will definitely be my favorite screenshot capture program for a long time to come.

Verdict

PicPick will definitely replace ScreenshotCaptor as my favorite screen capture program because it offers more features and it’s more enjoyable to use. A great freeware program, thanks again to Bear Bottoms for pointing it out to me.
