Here's some I found on one of those surfing days.
They are not as small of a download but not large either.

http://www.creativedocs.net/

http://www.fiastarta...PrtScr/Download.html

http://www.nicekit.c...st-free-snapshot.htm

That first screencapture was kindof cool so I kept it.

The other one would be good to send to someone who needs a simple one and don't know anything about installing programs.
No install required, just download to desktop and it's ready to go.

I still think our mouser's screencapture beats all I've seen but these were unique imo.

Creative docs is a bit different but the same sortof.
And unique too.

Capture Master falls under the same free, little, portable application category.

More screenshots

How to use:

- Move the red box over the area you would like to capture (Hold CTRL key down and put the mouse cursor on the red border to start dragging).

- Resize the red box to fit the image (Click on the small black bit at lower right hand corner and move (in)outwards)

-Click on "capture" in the main Window and then on "save to file" (Bitmap, jpeg etc).

NAPALM is a fun tool for the desktop vandals (from the maker of Ptr Scr).

Aurionix FileUsage Tool gave these size and usage measurements:

screenshot2.gif

The Aurionix folder itself is 739 KB which still is pretty small, I think
and Aurionix works better than the other two of the kind I have tested.

Mempad is often mentioned around these parts, but Horst Schaeffer also has a number of other excellent portable utilities:

I use QSel to launch portable programs on every computer I use (it's a portable program used to launch portable programs  :-*).

Maybe because it was already mentioned in other threads on DC ;) .

The video there is kind of cool. They use "Firestarter" by the Prodigy for background music. :)

JPEG & PNG Stripper is my tool of choice (only 71.5 KB and portable).

Nirsoft has a similar utility - SiteShoter.

interesting,

When I first grab it all the links work in Thumbnail Grabber.

But if I close it and open it with Thumbnail Grabber then the links don't work.

So in the preview or right after the shot the links work in Thumbnail Grabber. Till you close it.
-
Now in SiteShooter the links don't work either way.
Because for one it won't open in SiteShooter.

Unless I'm missing something.

Cuz I just can't leave Thumbnail Grabber up all the time after shooting just for the links to work.

Both nifty programs imo.

you know it's so much of a difference in how many good free programs there are compared to to 15 years ago it's crazy man.
