PicPick is a powerful screen capturing tool that supports capturing all sorts of screenshot types, including fullscreen, window, rectangular, freehand or scrolling window screenshots.

The new PicPick 6.0.0 is still available as a free for home use edition and a professional edition. The main differences between the two versions, besides the commercial and home use limitation, are that the commercial versions are free of advertisement, include technical support and automatic updates.

PicPick 6.0.0 comes with a redesigned look and feel. Some users may fear the worst when they read that, as new or redesigned interfaces are not always an improvement. Good news is that the new interface does not really look that different from the previous interface. [...]
One improvement that is introduced in PicPick 6.0.0 is support for a dark interface. The color scheme uses that of the system by default, but users may change it to light or dark under General in the preferences.

Dark Mode is not the only improvement that the new user interface brings along with it. Some users had issues with the user interface on high DPI displays; the new version corrects these so that users should not experience any issues anymore related to that.

The release notes highlight several other improvements, including improved loading performance. Here is the full changelog:
  • Rebuilt UI with completely redesigned look and feel.
  • Support Dark Mode
  • Improved loading performance
  • Fixed UI issues on high-DPI devices
  • Improved Image Editor
  • Improved Cloud sharing features
  • Improved FTP upload feature
  • Improved Widget
  • Improved Whiteboard
  • Small known bugs were fixed.
