@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...

@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-

you said
These are Trolltech (Qt framework) keys."

so I thought I might have missed a memo some where and maybe they were normal keys made
unavoidable I dont know

I am Baas on 2013-05-25 04:38

Napiophelios is right, it does write Trolltech junk to the registry. The "hats off" award obviously goes to him.

Napiophelios on 2013-06-07 22:09

I dont give a crap about Trolltech (Qt framework) keys;
this app rocks! :)

Can't open the .zip file (I downloaded the file from 2 mirrors, but neither 7-zip nor Uniextract could open it)

Worked great for me no problem with download, extract, or launch.
A great screen capture tool with neat features.
It will not replace FastStone Capture for me but it is a close second, and at half the size worth keeping track of.

Domain is gone, commercial use also free?
Error @starting - not enough Memory... - but it starts
Error @screenshot Fullscreen - not enough Memory - maybe Dualdisplay Problem?
No Probs @ Window Screenshot
