      Recording video seems to be a key feature of ShareX, and it's not possible in Greenshot. It's certainly not an applicable alternative for me today, but I think they're not good alternatives for each other in general - ShareX is probably worth listing as an alternative on Greenshot, but the scope of use is quite different, and it probably has a much larger footprint on the user's machine.

      ShareX includes a lot of features (even the IRC client), but the main is screenshooting.

    2. Features a free draw tool, arrows, lines, circles, and other tools for editing screenshots you take. There is no Text Box or Comment Feature. Screenshots can be uploaded to Imgur, saved to a local file, or copied directly to your clipboard to easily paste in other programs.

      Flameshot allows you to quickly take a screenshot, draw a couple boxes, and save it to your clipboard faster than any other software I've tried. For me, any additional UI after that point is also a dealbreaker, which flameshot doesn't have. Once you're done with your screenshot, you're done. Quick and simple.

      blackwhattack Can't record videos, no global shortcut. ShareX has a lot of great miscellaneous tools (like OCR, color detection). Doesn't automatically suggest a screenshot region based on windows.

      no obvious option to add a hotkey, must be executed through GUI with a button. not a massive issue for people who barely take screenshots, but super bad for those of us who use the feature a lot.

      Too much clutter and many steps. ShareX is QUICKER, more lightweight.

    3. Lightshot - easy screenshot tool, is screen capture tool for Windows and Mac platforms, with the added advantage of automatically uploading it online for sharing or editing.


      The Lightshot app generates URLs that are easy to guess or scrape, making it alarmingly easy for anyone to view grabs of private messages or intimate photos.

      Ola I have been using ShareX for years but it's always been a pain to configure and so on. If you need LOADS of features and freedom to upload where you want and so on ShareX is great but really like the simplicity of Lightshot.

      tytanick A little bit heavy but it has super cool features. Easy and fast screenshoting in mac. Instantly you can draw nice arrows and text. Also you can use smart feature that detects things like text box, text itself, images, bars, and it makes separate elements from those things and then it allows you to move them. So when you want to show your developer where should something go, then it is more easy to do so.
