      Greenshot vs Snagit opinions
      Most users think Greenshot is a great alternative to Snagit.
      The OCR functionality is very useful and the annotation and markup tools are plentiful and easy to use; very small learning curve for a powerful tool.

      Doesn't come near the ease and functionalities of what Snagit has. On the plus side, it is free.

      Greenshot does not even come near Snagit. Very low usability. NOT intuive and the tools are on such a low level-I can`t even describe.
