about Greenshot and scrot Oct 2015

Coming from Linux, I missed scrot -s a lot. Now I can deal with image cropping easily.
Plus, Greenshot is Open Source, which is great if you asked me.

Why is this app so hot? 1 Helpful

about Greenshot Sep 2015

I was concerned about screenshot apps for years, Greenshot is not that outstanding.
I think it is like Piriform software, just good marketing and good luck.

about Greenshot Mar 2013

greenshot is by far my favorite screen shot software that i have ever used, with the past 2 software i was searching for some features which is unnecessary but will make my life a lot more easier and do things a lot more simple and fast, with GreenShot i find it all, the essential, the additions , the extra addition, itis simply super fantastic, yet super simple, in tiny little package.

Nice app 1 Helpful

about Greenshot Dec 2012

I'm the guy who initially translated it to French. This app evolved a lot since then. The only thing I would like to see is a full Window scroll capture for every app, not only IE. Of course if it would have video as suggested in some comments it would be fine but maybe they should do a separate app for that.

Do not agree with the person saying that size doesn't matter and I especially disagree on the argument that person/groups that emphasis on their app size would not code well. I think it's the opposite. Being able to make an app that reaches to eat the least possible capacity demands a great knowledge in development. So size somehow matter even if it doesn't matter as much as functionality.

about Greenshot and Snagit Oct 2012

Awesome alternative for SnagIt. And it's open-source, too. Beautiful!
Love it.

I am using the lastest Build of Greenshot, v1.0.3 RC3 by now.

about Greenshot Oct 2012

I tried many captures, and this is not outstanding at all. I think why it's well-known like this is just some magazines or websites recommended it.

For free ones, try PicPick, FastStone Capture v5.3, DuckCapture, Ptr Scr.

Why pay for SnagIt?

about Greenshot and CamStudio Apr 2012

Greenshot does everything I need, except for video capture, and I can use the free CamStudio for that.

I like it.

about Greenshot and ZScreen Jun 2011

I like it. It's lightweight, offers the most useful options (like (last) crop shot and window shot) and the built-in image editor can easily crop images. What I miss in comparition to ZScreen (Open Source too) for example, is to select not only whole windows but elements of windows, like bars or dialoges and seperators - this is what I miss with Greenshot.

I especially like the concept of plug-ins, the program is reasonably small, but can be extended with additional output modes.
