    For Windows,

    Take a look at Cropper

    And you can get the gif plugin for this tool at

    How about CTRL+PrintScreen. You can paste the capture in Paint, Photoshop, or any photo editing software. Crop it the way you want and save it. If you want just a screenshot of an individual window use ALT+PrintScreen. Why install extra programs when you already have the tools on your computer?

    The 2 tools I posted above will capture long screens - url2bmp will capture a screen 5000px (or more) long for instance - whereas PrtSc just grabs the visible window.

    This probably is very old thread. But I was searching for open source screen capture and google linked me to here.

    so thought i'll throw in my 2-cents of what I've found:

    http://www.faststone.org/

    I'm using faststone now myself.
