  1. I am a software tester so a) I have at 3 monitors - Lightshot will not function on more than the laptop monitor. The others, too bad soo sad. b) So I moved the browser to the laptop to take a screenshot for the app that I was testing. Too bad Soo sad, Lightshot hid the browser so I could not screenshot it.

Bye Bye LightSnot!

It works perfectly and has been on my PC for many months. No problem, the only thing is that it took me a while to figure it out:

Use CTRL + "+" (the button with the numeric "+" symbol) to increase the size of the text and arrows. I can only use with the "+" key on the numeric keypad (NumLock enabled) And use CTRL + A to streamline print on the entire screen

I decided to comment here to make it easier for you lol.

Nice app! But there is lack of some features.

INCEDIBILE feature: search captured image in google in 1 click. Don't know another app with that feature.

Nice features:

  • capture part of screen with possibility to move selection
  • usable editing right on screenshot: lines, arrows, text, marker
  • copy to clipboard or save
  • hotkeys for fullscreen and area capture

Poor features:

  • edit in paint-style, no layers like in ShareX
  • can't edit text size, font and other

Missing features:

  • no steps tool in editing, like step 1, step 2
  • no integration with other image services, only prnt.sc
  • no snap to window when capture an area like in ShareX
  • no multicapture mode (few screens to 1)
  • no pixelate / blur tool
  • no OCR

Recommended by my nephew, Zack. Works better than the screencapture I had been using before.
