  • Cropper is a lightweight screen capture utility written in C# with a lot of nifty features. It is available from Codeplex and the download size is 270KB. You can not just save the screenshots in JPG, PNG formats but also as Animated Gif & AVI using Cropper plugins.
  • Snipping Tool which comes with Windows Vista is accessible from the Accessories section.

It also allows you to do other simple manipulations to the image like highlighting & writing on it.
