Developer's Description

ShareX is a free and open source program that lets you capture or record any area of your screen and share it with a single press of a key. It also allows uploading images, text or other types of files to over 80 supported destinations you can choose from.

ShareX supports many ways to capture or record your screen. The main capture methods are:

Fullscreen Active window Active monitor Window menu Monitor menu Region Region (Windows & controls) Region (Annotate) Region (Light) Region (Transparent) Polygon Freehand Last region Custom region Screen recording Screen recording (GIF) Scrolling capture Webpage capture Auto capture

There are many configurable screen capture settings such as showing the cursor, transparent window capture, delayed capture, multiple region selection with different shapes.

After the capture the following automated tasks can be executed:

Add image effects / watermark Open in image editor Copy image to clipboard Print image Save image to file Save image to file as Save thumbnail image to file Perform actions Copy file to clipboard Copy file path to clipboard Upload image to host Delete file locally

For example, the captured image can be opened in image editor and after that, the image can be automatically saved to the hard disk and uploaded to your destination of choice.
