[CC] Free Ashampoo Snap 4!

Software Description

Ashampoo Snap is a program to take a “snapshot” of what you see on your computer screen. This program is an alternative to the default windows “Print Screen” function. Ashampoo Snap 4 has more features than the default screen capture function. With Ashampoo Snap 4, you will be able to edit your captures with the built in editor. Here are a few new features that have been improved since the previous versions:

    This tool (see link below) is always FREE and better than ASHAMPOO SNAP 4.0 because it can even capture ENTIRE WEBSITES or documents that scroll beyond the visible section of the screen, thanks to its unique AUTOSCROLL CAPTURE feature:

    PORTABLE VERSION:

    And if you are looking for a great FREE SOFTWARE capable of capturing and even recording & sharing your VIDEO CASTS with a single click, among your friends, then GRABILLA and/or CAMSTUDIO and/or SUPERPICK 4.0 are the right tools for you:

    Hmm, try this link. Maybe it’ll work:
    http://www.ashampoo.com/frontend/registration/php/trial_step1.php?session_langid=2&edition_id=hcrmfml9kqqbpp8yckkvnzrsm4r4oslv

    BTW I use Google Chrome to make the screenshots so thats why the language is all English. Other how, you could also use Google Translator.

    Ashraf, thank you! I’ve had Version 3.5. Excellent program.

  • Dru

    @PCbasics:
    Like the others I appreciate this find and agree, this is a wonderfully well done article. Thank you. Instructions were perfectly clear and I have a licensed copy as a result. Initially the german text threw me but I followed your instructions, screen shots were very helpful, and now I’m up and running. I have had my eye on Snap for a bit and I can’t wait to get started with it. Thanks again!

    @PCbasics:

    Tried again, still no joy. The link provided is in some foreign language which I do not understand.
    Thanks for the response, though.

  • Donna Rae

    A+, Installed and works Great. Thanks Lots!

  • @Frank Carreira:
    When you click the blue button it should open up your default browser to a page where you enter your e-mail. If not, then try going to this link:

    Nothing happens when I try to get the free registration Key.

  • Merlin

    How does it compare with FastStone Capture ?

  • annie

    Thanks! I’ll upgrade from Snap 3.
    And yes, the site might be in German, but the software and all subsequent dealings with Ashampoo are in (perfect) English.

  • polycue

    English is offered by the setup.

  • Ashraf

    @Jack: Ashampoo has an English website so there is support in English, too. Not 100% sure about this specific freebie, though.

  • Jack

    Maybe I am missing something, but the site… and I assume all support… is in German?

  • I have been using snap 4 for quite some time now – yes I was so impressed with it tht I actually paid for it.
    It works well, has a nice interface, and has not yet failed to have any feature that I go looking for

  • @Ashraf: Hahaha, Thanks. Spent about an hour writing it! XD

  • RDC
