Taking a screenshot with CaptureEze Pro is fairly easy. [See image 3] You can customize the key you want to use for the screen capture so it doesn’t interfere with any other shortcuts--a necessary feature, I think. However, when I decided to try out the screen-capture facility, I was very disappointed to see it take nearly ten seconds to go over my 22-inch screen and turn it into what looked like a photograph negative (I had to click somewhere onscreen to turn it back to normal color). I had imagined, somewhat foolishly perhaps, that the simple user interface and the speed with which CaptureEze moved through its screens would make for a fast capture, allowing me to take more than five screenshots per minute. This was not so.
Once you’ve captured the image, though, it’s amazingly easy to replace color and add filters, masks, shadows, frames, and a lot more. [See image 4] This little program is starting to look quite tasty, and I find myself beginning to appreciate why it takes so long to capture. I remind myself that CaptureEze Pro can take a full web page captures.
"Capture and Auto-Print" is another surprisingly nifty little feature of CaptureEze Pro. It worked very well and even I could command it to do my bidding. It gives options for U.S. and European settings (which I thought were pretty good, as there are distinct differences most people don’t appreciate), so it saves work there. "Capture and Auto-Save" is compatible with a plethora of image formats, including JPG, GIF, BMP, LBM, MAC, PCX, PNT, PZI, and RLE.
"Work with Existing Images" is another snappy little feature that allows you to play with images you already have rather than relying on the slow but steady screen capture. It is very easy to use the simple edit tools, convert images, or print. In fact, the amount of features CaptureEze Pro offers really is quite extensive.
