Useful freeware for OS-X : screen capture, pdfill, AV, partition magic
Posted on 2013-01-27
Just got a Macbook Pro (retina).
Where can I download some useful freeware for OS-X (Mountain Lion):
a) a screen capture utility (equivalent of Windows SnagIt) which could
save the captured screen as jpg, png, bmp & possibly PDF formats?
b) print to a PDF file (equivalent of PDFill / image writer) printer
c) is virus infection common on OS-X (compared to say Linux) as this
laptop will be accessing Internet almost daily? Where can I
download a copy of free AV / anti-malware (which doesn't take
much system resource when it's scanning) ?
d) partition magic equivalent tool to format an external USB HDD
(to a format recognized by OS-X) & which could sort of adjust
dynamically the USB HDD partition sizing as & when needed
e) a tool that allows me to auto-mount & read files on NTFS partition
of a USB HDD as well as map drives of a Windows XP/7 shared drives
(via Wifi if possible as I hv a number of Windows laptops at home)
f) as the Macbook comes with a built-in camera, a software that could
capture/convert videos into numerous video formats ( .wmv, VCD,
DVD, rmvb & quicktime )
