Pros

  • Free.
  • Very small, neat and lightweight.
  • Also lets you highlight parts of the taken screenshots

Cons

  • Doesn't support hotkeys.
  • Can save the images only to 4 formats

Capture Screenshot Lite is a simple and straightforward screenshot taking application that lets you quickly capture images of a region from the screen, of a window, or of the full screen. After the screenshots are captured, it lets you delete areas of the taken screenshot using the included eraser, highlight parts of them or even directly draw onto them, using different colors. Furthermore, once the editing process is also complete, the images can be either saved as local files (PNG, BMP, JPG, and GIF are the supported formats), printed or shared via email.

Capture Screenshot Lite is very lightweight, neat and small. It's also easy to use thanks to its simple interface, therefore it can be used even by complete beginners without any problem.

Unfortunately, it also comes with some flaws as well. For example, it doesn't come with support for hotkeys at all. You have to press the “New” button of the interface every time you want to take a new screenshot. Another drawback is the fact that it supports only 4 formats for saving the screenshots. Anyway, they're very popular formats supported by a lot of apps.

To sum it all up, despite the fact that it comes with a couple of downsides, Capture Screenshot Lite is still a really handy app, and the fact that it's also free actually makes it a pretty appealing screen capture tool.
