    Everytime I do a screen capture, I have to run photoshop to crop, then save
    the file as jpeg.
    Starting photoshop takes too long. Is there a smaller (and free) app that
    can be used to crop and save a jpeg file faster? I tried GIMP, also takes a
    long time to startup. My PC is slow...

    Irfanview is free and does what you want in
    about twenty seconds.

    Irfanview is a nice, small utility, won't sub for an image editor, but
    it is great for screen grabs.

    Windows has included Paint for decades.
    Irfanview, as already mentioned, is free, and does this too, as well
    as a LOT of things that paint doesn't do or doesn't do as well.

    you can setup a timed capture. Tons of options. I've used it fo
    years and it only gets better with each upgrade
