Enter "./Captures" to the "Settings->Local/Network folder -> Save location" to save captures/recordings to the application folder.

@webfork Yes, but it gives only one url of the image to copy. I have used another Imgur uploader, which stopped working, but it gave different type of url's to use, like: for forums, for html sites, with small and large thumbnails.

@Peter202: Greenshot goes really lightweight and minimalist by design so that's not present but you might goto the home page and click 'suggest a feature'

I just started using Greenshot. With Win 7 x64.

I just cannot set Settings->General->Update_check_interval to 0. Any other value works.

Nice program otherwise.

Is the previous version still available? Couldn't find it at the site...

smaragdus on 2014-11-01 21:16

@Midas - I have put into an archive and uploaded all the versions of Lightscreen I have (0.5, 1.0, 1.01, 2.0 + PAF editions), so you can download the archive if you need any of the previous versions, which seem to be unavailable. Here is the download link of the 7Z archive- http://ge.tt/7p8JzJ32/v/0?c

Thanks, smaragdus, much appreciated. :)

GifCam is a handy and reliable application designed to record the screen and to convert the recordings into GIF format. It supports to define the recording frame rate, to select the color quality, to add a text in frames, capture the cursor, and much more.

Great for demonstrations, how-tos, and bug testing.

I managed to grab GifCam 4.0 and GifCam 4.5 using Archive.Org but earlier versions were unrecoverable.
The lack of hot keys is awkward. Saving to GIF is very slow. And yes, GifCam 5.0 is not portable.

Win10 each time I use this thing
