    I don't see the need for it, at least not for a price.

    There is one :)

    It'd be great for me when I have to write up tutorials for customers of my new job, or anyone else that writes up documentation and needs to take screen captures of interface elements.

    If you have Vista will the Snipping Tool not work for what you need?

    Good find, looks like something I could use as an avid screen shot taker.

    I can't verify its ability to ignore window alpha (I'm not yet a Vista user), but Screenshot Captor has an amazing set of features and is likely a better value, as a DonationCoder.com "membership" gives you lifetime access to all software available on the site, which is not only of excellent quality, but authored by responsive developers who are active participants in the friendly member forums.

    That one looks overly complex. Nice alternative though.

    Integration with Paint.NET now, my favorite open-souce alternative to Photoshop.
    Tried the trial, works perfectly :)

    My favorite alternative app to Photoshop is GIMP due to the fact it's Ubuntu-ready :)
    For screenshots I use the PrtScn-CTRL+V combo and save/edit the file with GIMP

    I personally like Paint.NET; lots of plugins and it's open-source so you can still use it on Ubuntu :D

    Seems lots of people are missing the point of window clippings :)

    If you make a lot of screenshots for documentation (say for a software manual) this $18 application will save you a ton of work in Photoshop, paint.net, gimp cleaning up the screenshot you get from print screen > paste as new image.
