Kenny Kerr has released Window Clippings 2.0, complete with its own website. I’ve been using Window Clippings for a few years now and it continues to be my favourite screen capture tool. Simple, efficient, elegant, and (mostly) free. He has been continuing to update it and it includes cool features like:

  • Support alpha transparency, both for windows and mouse cursors, enabling capture of non-rectangular windows.
  • Outputs to a variety of formats, including PNG, JPG, TIFF, and BMP. (Extensible through add-in model.)
  • Capturing to a variety of destinations including any combination of directory, clipboard, and OneNote.
  • Support for Aero Glass, including removing “dirty glass”.
  • 32-bit and 64-bit Windows support, including XP, Server 2003, and Vista.
  • Optional integration with PrtScn key.
  • Automatic updates.

From Day One, Kenny has provided this awesome utility free of charge. With Window Clippings 2.0, Kenny is turning this into a small business. You can download and use Window Clippings for free with all the features it had before. With 2.0, he has added some advanced features (such as post-processing PNG images and enabling add-ins) that are enabled when you buy a license. Licenses currently cost a whopping $10 USD! I have more than happily sent Kenny $10 so that he can continue development of this awesome tool.
