MediaChance UltraSnap PRO v3.3 Portable

UltraSnap PRO is a windows clipboard graphic processor and a slick screen capture program with a complete WYSIWYG editor.

You no longer have to open your image editing software to add captions or annotations, cursors, arrows or combine multiple images or screen shots into one image. In fact UltraSnap PRO often produces better and easier results than your image editing program.

 UltraSnap is an excellent tool not only for office application such as preparing tutorials, manuals, web graphics and screen shots but also for everyday use for example to quickly create a little scrapbook postcard or collage from few photos and then sending them by e-mail or post it to blog.
The main idea is that all is done quickly, without opening or saving files. Just go to Edit Mode, then simply use a shortcut to capture few photos one after another from your image viewer like Google Picasa or Windows Image Viewer, arrange them, add text, sharpen the whole thing and then paste it to your email or save as a file - all is done directly from clipboard and using comfortable WYSIWYG editing.

Quick mode
Press Hot-key to capture single image even on multiple-monitors, adjust the size, the sharpness, add drop shadow, add a text below the image. You don't have to create intermediate files, all the changes are back in the windows clipboard ready to be pasted in your application. At this point you may paste it to your application, save it to disk or switch to full editing mode.

Batch Processor
The best thing is that the quick effects are like a properties. Once you set them you don't have to repeat these steps for the next image again! The next image you capture will automatically have applied the resizing, sharpness and all the effects. As soon as you capture the screen, the new processed image is in clipboard and it can be automatically saved to disk as well. This is a huge time-saver for number of similar screen captures for tutorials or manuals.

Full WYSIWYG Editing mode
We were tired of going to editing program to combine multiple captures or photos into one image, adding cursors, texts, captions or arrows. So we build full WYSIWYG editor directly into UltraSnap.

With a click of a button you can anytime switch to the editing mode where you can continue to capture more images to create a composition, add various texts, cursors, arrows, draw lines or curves etc. Each object can be then customized with drop shadow, transparency, color, bevel, glow, resized, rotated, even apply perspective transformation. The result is sharp and professional because UltraSnap PRO uses combination of vector and bitmap anti-aliasing in its editor.

 Multiple Projects
On top of this, you can work on multiple "projects" at the same time. Still working on one capture, but quickly need to do another one? Or do you want to try few captures in a row, then decide which one to keep? Click New and you can start working on a different capture without disturbing the previous one, then simply switch back when you need to.

 (The image above shows the power of UltraSnap editor where you can easily apply linear transparencies to captures, add cursors and labels.)
This may not look like a big deal, but the fact that you can work simultaneously on few captures in composite editing mode and/or in the "single capture" mode, each with its own properties opens a whole new dimension into the capturing.

 New in 3.0 are our most popular NPR (Non Photo Realistic) Styles. You can spice up your screen captures with vector text or shapes using natural looking pencils, paints or crayons. (Click for Larger image)
