Softonic review

Effortlessly record anything on your screen

We take a lot of screenshots at Softonic so we know a good screenshot tool when we see one. Snapz Pro X definitely fits the bill as a powerful and flexible screenshot tool, filling just about every need, although Snow Leopard users may debate whether its worth it or not.

Once Snapz Pro X is installed, taking a screenshot is a keystroke away. You can save into a huge variety of formats including .bmp, .pict, .gif, .jpg, .png, .tiff, .pdf, or even as a Photoshop file. Even better, if you want to create a screencast tutorial, you can do so by saving it as a QuickTime movie.

Screenshots can be scaled, cropped, color depth-changed, and dithered, which makes Snapz Pro X quite a handy image editor as well. You can add borders, generate automatic thumbnails, add watermarks and copyright warnings, and much more. Long file names aren't a problem, you can automatically preview images, and all-round use of the Snapz Pro X is a pleasure.

On the downside, Snapz Pro X can be a little slow to launch and there is no way to save audio from screencasts in a compressed format such as MP3 or AAC. In addition, the program isn't regularly updated and it seems strange that developer Ambrosia has chosen to do it now when Snow Leopard already has many of these screen capture capabilities built in.

Snapz Pro X is a powerful screenshot and screencasting tool although Snow Leopard users in particular might not find much need for it.
