Polenta ScreenShot is an excellent screen capture tool that is easy to use and provides great results. It allows you to take screenshots of your entire screen, select a certain area or window, and save the image in various formats such as PNG, JPG, BMP, and TIF. You can also copy the image to the clipboard or send it via email. The hotkeys make it easy to select the required area of the screen or capture the whole screen with just a few clicks. Overall, Polenta ScreenShot is an excellent choice for anyone who needs to take quick and accurate screenshots.

Polenta ScreenShot is a simple application that allows you to take screenshots in a snap. You can take screenshots of the whole screen or select a rectangular area or window. The application sits in your system tray and allows you to control everything from there. You can also use the selected keyboard keys to take the screenshots or use the menu buttons. Once the screenshot is taken, another menu will open, where you can select what you wish to do with the image: save it to the image folder (a folder that you specify where all the snapshots are stored), copy it to clipboard, or e-mail it. The images can be saved in the PNG, JPG, BMP and TIF formats. Unfortunately, the program doesn't show you the snapshot, so you will have to save it if you wish to see it. It also would be great if you could take free-hand screenshots and not only rectangular ones, and if it included borders.
Also, the user interface isn't very attractive since it looks a bit old and features nasty colors. However, it is extremely easy to use and it is available in English and Italian.
In short, Polenta ScreenShot might be what you want if you are looking for an easy to use and free screen capture to make simple screenshots.
