Well, I mean you could always avoid getting software, and saving space, (or any saving money for that matter, I doubt you would need to pay for snapshot software though) by using the Print Scr button on your computer, and just taking a screenshot using that button located on your keyboard. All you would have to do is press that button, and go into an image editor (even Microsoft Paint) and just pasting the image, (it works like copy and paste kind of). Then you would save the image from there. Anyways, if you really want the software instead of messing with the easy to use keyboard feature. You could always try this web page, that has Snapshot related software:

To be honest, I am not sure. I would say yes, but I do not have the facts on that. I normally just use the PrintScrn keyboard option, but everyone doesn't do that apparently. I guess you would just have to find some software that you think is good for snapshots, and try it, and see if it automatically saves it to the canvas.
