Windows can be moved, organized into groups, saved to file, as well as basic editions like rotation, zoom, translucence etc.

I tried Snipaste for awhile and gave it an honest chance but 4me it doesn't compare to zScreen (I use older version) which I have used for a very long time. I'm really open to finding and using a new or different screen capture pgm. I just haven't found it yet. Not to take anything away from Snipaste cuz in fact it is a good app and easy to use.

ScreenToGif would be even better, if it was not for its unwieldy Net Framework 4.6.1 addiction
(2.5 GB of available hard disk space required).

For me, I'll stick with leaner, self-contained GifCam instead, thank you.

The editor for this program just gets better and better. I've really enjoyed seeing it's progress over time.

@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.

webfork on 2016-05-06 20:18

@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'

gbrao on 2016-12-20 10:58

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.

Has anyone tested recently if SC portability shortcomings are still extant?

ripu on 2015-02-18 09:00

@Midas I only tried the screenshot feature, and it did not create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RtColorPicker or any other registry entry.

@ripu: thanks for reporting.

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
