Screenshot Captor, as the name implies is a free software (for personal use) to capture screenshots of your PC. While Screenshot Captor is not the same as the those commercial software which offer highly glossy views and features, Screenshot Captor seems to stand a bit different in the way it hands back the control to the user with the level fine tuning one can do. The default settings are good to work straight out of the box while the fine tunings should definitely impress the advanced users.
