Follow me on:

Voila from Global Delights is a screen capture program with some unique features. Like most screen capture applications, Voila can capture a window, an area, or the entire desktop. It also offers timed captures.

Voila 2.5: Tom's Budget Software Pick

Voila from Global Delights

But unlike most screen capture applications, Voila can also use various shapes, such as rectangles, polygons, circles, and ovals, as well as a freehand outline, to capture any area of the screen. One feature I enjoy is the ability to capture application menus. Usually you have to use a timed screen capture to grab a menu, and then use an image editor to delete everything that isn't the menu. With Voila, you can select an open menu with just the press of a keyboard combo.

Voila also has its own built-in browser for grabbing web shots. Why? Because when you open a URL in the Voila browser, each component of the web page becomes an individual item that you can select and capture independently.

Once you have your screen shots, you can use Voila to organize, edit, and share the images.

If you're looking for a timesaving screen capture application with unusual features, give Voila a try.

Voila is $39.95. A 30-day demo is available.
