"Excellent and full featured"

August 22, 2012  |  By Alivallo_one

 |  Version: GreenShot 0.8

Pros

Many features; gets the job done, outperforms windows printscreen/paint and the snippit tool.

Cons

could use a facelift in the GUI (a little boxie)
could use some more highlighting options such as a 'circle text box' and more 'stamps'

Summary

Overall; suits my current needs and IT's FREE

"I like the image editing features"

July 11, 2012  |  By tsreyb

 |  Version: GreenShot 0.8

Pros

Super easy to use; lets you select a region, not just a window; you can mark the resulting image with arrows, boxes, ellipses, and text.

Cons

None that I can think of.

"So easy and simple with great features and FREE."

May 17, 2012  |  By boone_jim

 |  Version: GreenShot 0.8

Pros

Hot Keys quickly allow capture of region, window or desktop. Latest feature includes cursor that can easily be moved or deleted from image. Too cool.

Cons

None - It is also very small and so portable. I keep it on a thumbdrive when I am at different computers and need to capture some or all of the screen. I sometime capture a region of the region.

Summary

Awesome free tool. Years ago my company wouldn't spring for additional "pricey" Snag-It licenses. I combed the internet and found this free tool. Searching CNET,Gadwin Printscreen has a lot of reviews and after wiping out my pc and installing Win7 I decided to try the free tool with the most positive reviews. I switched back to Greenshot because of the easy hot-key captures of region, window or desktop. Thank you to the developer for a great tool. BTW, recently see and wish CNET wasn't trying to sneak spam onto our systems during download and installs. Carefully read the screens during install.

"By far the best I've found"

June 10, 2011  |  By togamoos

 |  Version: GreenShot 0.8

Pros

Lightweight, full-featured, fast, clean interface, no bloat or BS, highly customizable depending on your needs.

Cons

I get a little nervous about the fact that the developer hasn't released a new stable version in nearly a year. It's not that I really need him to change anything about the app, it's great as is, but I hope he sticks with it.

Summary

I use screenshot tools all the time and have always been frustrated by ones that were bloated (Jing) or weren't full-featured enough (LightScreen). With the right settings, GreenShot does exactly what I need it to do - copies the screenshot to my clipboard, brings it up in a lightweight editor in case I need to add arrows or labels, and saves it in a "screenshots" folder in case I need to upload or send the file somewhere. The number of screenshots I take per day just for the sake of convenience has at least doubled since I started using GreenShot. This and Notepad++ are my favorite open source apps ever.
