Virtual Camera provides you with a fast and comfortable method of taking snapshots of your entire screen and saving them on the local hard drive. While there is an abundance of similar applications out there, this particular software solution is very lightweight and stands out from the crowd through its ease of use and portability.
Its interface is intuitive, consisting of a transparent window of adjustable size that you can move around the desktop and place wherever you want to. Actually, simplicity is one of the main characteristics of this application, since using it shouldn't pose any problems to users, regardless of their experience level.
Taking a new snapshot is just a matter of pressing a button. Virtual Camera can capture the entire screen, but it also comes with an option to capture a user-defined area of the desktop. Screenshots can be saved in BMP, PNG, JPG or GIF format to a user-defined location and previewed within the main window prior to saving.
Further improvements needed:
Virtual Camera enables you to adjust the interface opacity level and set the application to start with Windows, defining the startup window size and position on the screen. Furthermore, it features a so-called 'compact mode', which makes the GUI really small, only comprising the capturing buttons.
Virtual Camera focuses on speed and simplicity, rather than complicated configuration options. Therefore, it is mainly intended for users who don't require advanced screen capturing capabilities and want to stick to the basics: pressing a button and saving the snapshot.
