      Top negative comment  about 2 years ago

      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.

      sombrenote Snipping tool has a fraction of the features of ShareX but it is light and fast. Sort of like how notepad is to word.

      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.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      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.

      Discontinued

      The project seems to be no longer developed. Last version, 2.7 r316, released in May 2015, can be still downloaded from SourceForge.

      Warning

      As described on VirusTotal comment (https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/1ddb733efb11769a05cc735d555e9a4df92c4cdf29fa47ea3864e57e67dcf884/analysis/1411383540/): if you download CamStudio from SourceForge.net, the VirusTotal results are 0/53. After installing this SF version, it immediately says that there is an update available. When the link is clicked, it takes you to camstudio.org, which has a zip file that, scanned with VirusTotal, gives you 15/53 result. So do NOT download and install the "update": it's a malware. Installer as of 09/22/2014.

      Flameshot vs ShareX
      pros, cons and recent comments
      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.

      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.
