Mimics one of my favorite features in Mac OS X

about LightShot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

One of my favorite features in Mac OS X is its built-in screenshot tool. The default "PrntScrn" function in Windows sucks, since you're forced to take a screenshot of your entire screen (a huge pain due to my dual-monitor setup), and there's no easy way of saving the image. The Snipping Tool in Windows is a little bit better, but there's no easy way to turn it on, and it's not very flexible or quick to use, either. Meanwhile, the screen capture feature in Mac OS X allows you to select only a single part of your screen to capture, saves your screenshot automatically to the desktop, and is accessible via a keyboard shortcut.

Until Windows gets a less cruddy screen capture feature, LightShot is the best way I've found to mimic the excellent screenshot feature in OS X.

Hi omgitsthesmartguy,

Just a tip :

Did you know that you can make a shortcut and assign a keyboard shortcut to it natively in Windows?

Here's an article about it if you want : http://www.pcworld.com/article/197195/Assign_a_Keyboard_Shortcut_to_Any_Installed_Program.html

The amazing program "Puush"... just better....

about LightShot and puush · · Helpful Not helpful

I have been using puush and lightshot for a while now, and though puush is quicker at getting the job done, lightshot allows for much more customization. This is great, and it's still really easy to get a picuture out there quickly.

I would recommend lightshot over puush, mostly because of all the bugs that puush has. Sometimes puush can't even upload your picture, or react to your hotkey press. This is very annoying. And puush's images only last 6 weeks (a very long time) but not if it's something you need permanently.

Both programs are great though. And makes your everyday much easier on the computer.
