Free screencapture program similar to Jing but with more editing features?

I recently stumbled upon this really nice FREEWARE screenshot program that let you blur things in your captures and add text bubbles etc.. it mentioned being better than Jing..
But alas I didnt bookmark it, does anyone have any idea what it could be

Response by poster: also it had this feature where it could stitch together multiple images
ie if you had to capture a whole webpage you could scroll and it would stitch them togther

I really like Fireshot -- it's a free Firefox add-on. You have the option of capturing the visible screen area or capturing the entire webpage in one click.

I have also heard good things about Snagit which is not free, although it has a free trial if you want to try it out. There are a lot of editing options (text bubbles, etc) available in Snagit.

Greenshot is an excellent application that should meet your needs.

I really like Screenshot Capture which is free (with required registration) at the Donation Coder website. It has the feature you describe where you can take a screenshot of a scrolling window by pressing Ctrl + Shift + Prt Scr.

Faststone Capture is excellent.

This one is shareware, but the freeware version from 2007 is still available here.

I know the latest version allows you to blur, capture scrolling windows, add annotations/bubbles, etc. Not sure about the free version, but they have a detailed version history on their website so you could probably find out pretty quickly.
