about ShareX and Greenshot · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

ShareX is basically a greenshot image editor with a backend interface that supports gifs and advanced image host options

I've tried almost every other similar program recommended on "alternatives" and shareX is by far vastly superior to anything out there

only for windows though

I have used a lot of screen capturing tool. The last one was Greenshot which I needed to remove having trouble on the latest Windows 10 release / update. I must say that ShareX is by far the best one. (i.e. not only capturing screenshots but also screencams).

Usability at the very beginning is a bit difficult to understand but after a very short time you understand the concept and then it's just great.

I tried GreenShot before, but ShareX has so much more useful features that makes it my #1 recommended alternative. Aside of standard things, like key shortcut customization, it allows you to precisely determine its behaviour after certain action (i.e. print file, immediately open built-in image editor (which is the same editor that GreenShot uses BTW), copy URL to clipboard, shorten URL, etc.). All uploads and actions are conveniently logged and accessible from main window, providing preview and allowing to execute further actions on them, like directly obtaining Imgur removal link, editing file, deleting local copy, etc.
Also, it has probably the longest list of supported upload hosts amongst other tools, and user can create its own entries, making ShareX compatible with virtually any host.

So much customization:

  • Your choice of hosting services.
  • Support account logins.
  • Custom hotkeys.

Just a PSA for Those Who Use This Guy's Software

The guy outright denies a feature I requested because he thinks that "he should draw a line somewhere". Bullshit excuse; I wouldn't be surprised if he c-ould code the setting in under 30 minutes. Then he proceeds to rub it in my face that he had the feature in before.

Not going to be using this ****'s software anymore.

The way I see it, the developer actually went through the trouble of writing you a detailed 5-line response on his reasoning why he won't re-add the feature. His explanation is perfectly reasonable and worded in a respectful tone, it doesn't sound like he didn't appreciate the suggestion. As the project's maintainer, it's his job (and right) to decide on the general direction and scope of the software. I've dealt with many open-source projects, and I'd be thrilled to get a response like that. In 9 out of 10 cases, maintainers don't have the time to write responses like that, and if they do, they don't go beyond a "won't happen".

Also, the source is open, so he's not keeping anyone from adding the setting to their own builds. You don't even have that option with software projects who don't allow you access to their source.
