The mouse cursor is included in the captures.
Index images: Can create
index images (overview image with an array of small images). The tiling
of images can be freely set by user. Useful to get an overview of images.

Batch printing: Print a
list of images with any number of images tiled on the same sheet of paper
(similar appearance as index images). Useful for printing a series of captures.

a simple image-viewer. To open an image, doubleclick on the file or drag
& drop it on the program window. Jpeg images can be decompressed to
a smaller size for faster viewing. Fast zoom in/out by clicking the mouse
Image text: Can store text

crap like dll's) to mess up your system.
In Windows NT/2000 you need
to be logged on as administrator to install the program.
The program needs a default

useful option of creating index images will be unavailable. If you don't
have a physical printer, install a dummy printer (almost any graphic printer
Easy uninstall via Windows

should be completely restored.
