Conventional print screen is cumbersome and not able to include cursor.
You must be already knew the technique of capturing image on screen by print screen button. You press that button, paste to image processing software e.g. Photoshop, cut and manipulate a little bit, save, then put upon document. Watta mess, moreover for you who are making computer tutorial. Besides, you can’t catch cursor, whereas you need it to show something on your tutorial. Just admit it, come on..
Set Capture Image on system tray.
Let free your self from the rush of conventional print screen by downloading Capture Image! Extracting CaptureImage.zip in one folder, you will find two files, i.e. the executable Capture Image file itself and SnapHook.dll. Executing CaptureImage.exe, you will see it is set on system tray. While SnapHook.dll will integrate Capture Image function with certain buttons on keyboard.
If you do right-click on Capture Image icon, you will get four functions, i.e. Capture Screen, Capture Active Window, Capture Screen with Cursor, and Copy from Clipboard. If “Hook to Print Screen” is enable (default), then those four functions can be accessed from pre-defined buttons.
Place cursor, press print screen, make marquee, done!

- Place cursor in position you want then press print screen.
- That hooked button will activate “Capture Screen with Cursor” function. Emerges quickly in front of you, marquee grid in form of vertical-horizontal lines. For you who are often work with image processing application e.g. Photoshop or CorelDRAW, must be already familiar with marquee grid like this.
