Walkthrough of the new Hypersnap 7 User Interface

Hypersnap is still my favorite screen capture tool. I’ve mentioned this before but it bears repeating: I like it so much I don’t simply pay the upgrade cost but instead purchase a new full license for each version (US$ 40 instead of US$ 20).

What’s New

The full list is here: http://www.hyperionics.com/hsdx/features.asp but here is a quick summary

  • New Ribbon-based user interface
  • Drawing is easier – annotations to the capture are “separate objects” from the capture allowing easier editing
  • New native Hypersnap save format “.DHS”
  • Can pick colors and see exact RGB values easily from the capture
  • Save images as PDF

What I like

  • New UI is great all around
  • Much simpler editing
  • Configuration is easier – a lot of the options are in the ribbon instead of buried in dialogs
  • Peformance – still fast and lightweight
  • Work the cost? Yes. As always.
