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

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

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.

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

about Greenshot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

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!

Does the trick

about Greenshot and scrot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

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.

This is 2015 and I'm still using it

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.

Nice app

about Greenshot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

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.

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.

Why pay for SnagIt?

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

Lightweight app that has some nice features. I very much like the ability to upload directly to a JIRA ticket from the editor.

about Greenshot and Hyperdesktop · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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.
