      Ditto vs Diodon opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Ditto stores screenshots in full-size losslessly and lets you configure the storage path and maximum history in number of entries and storage byte size. Diodon doesn't seem to have that option, and when pasting screenshots, they have heavy JPG artifacts.
