Capture Me is a screen capture utility for Mac OS X which features a floating capture window and resize ability. To use the program, drag and resize the floating window to cover the area you want to capture. Then click in the window to capture the screenshot. You can resize it, copy it to the clipboard, and save it in a variety of formats and locations. Its behavior is customizable with respect to what happens after a capture.What advantage does Capture Me hold over the built in OS X screencapture facility? For some tasks, the answer is simple - there is none - the built in screen shot is elegant and easy to use. However, there are occasions when it's nice to be able to choose what file format your capture saves in, copy it to the clipboard without holding down four keys at once, or resize it on the fly. It's also common to want to take successive shots of the exact same position on the screen without moving the capture region at all, or make all your captures the same size. These tasks are trivial with Capture Me, but difficult at best with the built in utilities. Another possible use is as a floating capture pad - see the comments in the review section for an example of one user who does this. Version 1.3 has been rewritten from the ground up using Cocoa and OpenGL so it should be much faster than the previous version. This version is also a universal binary offering equal support for Intel and PowerPC processors. To use it, drag and resize the floating window to cover the area you want to capture. Then click in the window to capture the screenshot. You can save it in a variety of formats and locations and customize its behaviour with the preferences. Free! Globally floating capture window. Fast screen captures (uses OpenGL). Ability to down scale captures (proportionally or not). Save as PNG, JPEG, JPEG 2000, TIFF, or GIFF. Adjustable translucency of capture window.
