Ashampoo has kindly donated 10 licenses for its latest and greatest screen capture software, Ashampoo Snap 8, to give away to 10 lucky DCT subscribers. This is the very latest full version of the software which hasn’t even been officially released as yet – release date is set for 23rd March – so this is your chance to be one of the very first owners of Ashampoo Snap 8… and for the great price of FREE.


Professional screen capture software is one of the most important tools in a writer’s kit and Ashampoo Snap 8 is among the very best. Not that its usefulness is limited to writers of course, anyone who works with screenshots in any way will appreciate Ashampoo Snap 8’s amazing feature-set and versatility.

Ashampoo Snap 8 not only captures static screens, windows, and menus, but also includes the ability to record screen activity as a video… great for creating tutorials or when seeking assistance.

All this, of course, is neatly packaged into Ashampoo’s usual intuitive interface:

  1. G’day Jim,

    This might be just the ticket to try my hand at making a few tutorials for my pensioner clients!


  2. Great tool for helping me work with up and coming film students… or savvy videographers for that matter!

  3. IF I won Ashampoo Snap 8, I would use it for putting together a user manual – I volunteer at Senior Net in Upper Hutt (New Zealand) and sometimes people are wanting training manuals for Windows 8.1 or tablets etc.

  4. Life is always a challenge and more so since my illness. Using Ashampoo Snap 8 would make those challenges a bit easier to manage…

    Have a good week all!

  5. I’ve been using ashampoo products for years now. There software is the best i’ve ever used & i use snap 7 very easy to use and easy on the system.

    • Hello Sonia – I haven’t received your claim as yet. Did you not receive my original email?

      Cheers… Jim
