ShareX icon ShareX

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

POST UPDATE 1/1/18

Greenshot standalone is starting to incorporate a lot of shareX features, I use both a standalone greenshot and sharex+portable-green-shot editor right now, depending on what I'm doing. I customize shareX extensively, greenshot I use all default values out of the box since the defaults are great

ShareX vs Greenshot comparison

Greenshot Pros

  • Dynamically saving location is miles ahead better than shareX
  • Better editor obviously, since shareX image editor based on greenshot

Greenshot Cons

  • Cannot set an automatic save file if using dynamic save location
  • Doesn't support image hosting logins
  • Doesn't support gifs

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.

Well, my understanding is that the OCR only works if the right Word library files are installed, and OCR was the biggest draw. There seems to be a vast array of Printing Options. I like choosing window by list and there's a plethora of specific options, but as far as the basics, it seems pretty basic. I don't even see the Scrolling Window Capture.

    Easy to use, has a pretty friendly interface, and is packed with functionality. Only downside is that I haven't found any OCR functionality... but that's a bit too specific to ask for anyway

    It's a fantastic tool for anything related to your screen. Screenshots (with custom editions), screen recording (for gifs or videos), file uploading, OCR, color picker, custom tasks and keybinds to do anything you want with all the available tools... Simply beautiful
