This is a powerful program (and an incredible deal), however it comes with a few warnings. First of all, be aware that if you install any of the promotional, free versions of Ashampoo programs, you will be bombarded from now on with ads for the commercial versions from the Ashampoo line. And not only with mail-sent adverts, for which there are counter-measures. You’ll also get pop-ups at launch generated from within the software.
While this might be an acceptable quid-pro-quo, especially given that many of those ads will be offering big discounts relative to the list price, you certainly need to take this into account.
The other point is that this program is chock-full with features. While this might obviously a good thing if you need them, be advised that if you do basic screen grabs, this piece of software gets in the way. The workflow is neither obvious nor unobtrusive. It needs learning. You will be looking for the functions you want and you’ll have trouble fending off multiple unwanted functions in the process.
The developers tried to alleviate this by including some forced help screens at specific points in the workflow. Although they can be de-activated, they tend to be either too much or too little.Jan 21, 2017 at 10:33 am #6905920
I have Ashampoo Snap 2017 from one of the previous giveaways. What’s the comparison between these two versions? Is this version 8 better or newer than version 2017?Jan 21, 2017 at 4:15 pm #6907560

Very very helpful software. I actually thoroughly enjoy it. Another keeper! Thanks a lot! Doesn’t drain resources and is always there. Similar to Microsoft’s One Note, but a lot more functions available.Apr 10, 2017 at 1:53 pm #7637729
I downloaded Ashampoo Snap 8. It brings up an info screen about the tool bars, but nothing else. I again, tried to repair and then uninstall and reinstall it. Still nothing.
Please help me get this fixed.
