For each captured screenshot, a separate window of its image editor opens up where you can use many annotation tools to enhance that particular screenshot.
It helps to capture full desktop screen or just a specific region of desktop screen, which you can edit with all available tools of its editor. Screenshot can be saved in five different formats (jpg, bmp, png, tiff, and gif) to custom destination location.
