use shareX which runs greenshot + many more baked in features for image host support

about Greenshot · ·

Small ShareX iconShareX

see this app

it runs greenshot for image editing but has slew of numerous features layered on top of it, including gif support, uploading host support, scroll captures, OCR recognition, etc

shareX is like greenshot 2.0

Greenshot Image Editor Doesn't work with 4k Monitor scaling

I have a 4k 15.6" Zenbook running windows 10 scaled at 200%. Scaling doesn't work with the image editor. Other than that this plugin is fantastic!

It's the best screen shot software I've ever used and ready to be used any time I want. Easily configurable with plenty of settings. I can sincerely recommend it. It would be great if it could record short videos.


I was using Hyperdesktop

about Greenshot and Hyperdesktop · ·

I was using Hyperdesktop before this program.

When I noticed some issues with Hyperdesktop I turned to this website to help me out...

It did not disappoint. :)

This program is great and is just as easy to upload images quickly and with A LOT more functionality.

I'm not going to be using Hyperdesktop again I guess. :)

HOWEVER one thing I think it could use is FTP uploading.


It's ok

about Greenshot and DuckLink Screen Capture · Oct 2012 ·

DuckCapture stops responding to PrtScn all the time, so I'm looking for alternatives. This seems pretty good, but it's missing the interactive mode for Capture Window, where you can mouse around and it highlights different parts of different windows that you can capture from.


New UNIQUE GreenShot-functions 2012

about Greenshot and Imgur, JIRA · ·

GreenShot has realized 3 unique and new functions with plugins:

  • OCR function to send text from ScreenShot toClipBoard:

    until 2012 JOCR was the only portable ScreenShot-tool with OCR (Optical Character Recognition)

  • Now you can upload the ScreenShots to Imgur (free without password):

    You simply can publish your Screenshot with an URL like .
    Imgur is a free and simple image hosting service with image editing feature. Signup is optional. Imgur is pronounced like image-er; imager.The maximum non-animated file size you can upload is 10MB. However, if the image is over 1MB then it will automatically be compressed or resized to 1MB, for better viewing on the net. The maximum animated file size (both GIF and PNG) is 2MB.
    Images may be removed if they get no views in 6 months.
    File types allowed: JPEG, GIF, PNG, APNG, TIFF, BMP, PDF, XCF (GIMP). The TIFF, BMP, PDF and XCF formats will be converted to PNG on upload.

  • Now you can upload the ScreenShots to JIRA (not free and only with password)


This review concerns with OCR-Plugin.

Unfortunatelly Greenshot OCR doesnot work with MS-Office 2010 + Windows 7 64 bit, but it does work with MS-Office 2007 + Vista business 64 bit

On you can read:

What's new in Portable Greenshot 0.8.1 Build 1138 Beta (June 1st, 2011):
Added OCR Plugin, this will only work when Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 is installed.

Microsoft removed MODI, Microsoft Office Document Imaging, from Office 2010. This is what GreenShot OCR function needs, without it there is no OCR-function.
You can have a try with this to get the MODI-function from SharePoint Designer 2007 (free). But it is not prooved if this works!
