Greenshot at a GlanceUsing Greenshot is effortless; it took just a few minutes to install and launch. Upon launch, we noticed four hotkey combinations that are preset to capture images and the option to personalize them. In Greenshot, after you select an image it turns green momentarily and then produces a camera shutter sound to let you know your image was created. And, once you've taken a shot and captured it to your desired format (JPEG, BMP, GIF and PNG), you can embellish the shot with arrows, text, etc. Besides the ability to set preset formats, you have the option to configure Greenshot to save your images directly to the clipboard or send them to the printer.

Thought I was going to switch from LightShot (which I've used almost 2 years) as I liked the crosshairs and open source but compared picture taken and GS was blurry. Hope they can fix that.
I find concurrent app - QipShot - much more friendly, and usable. It has easier to use image editor, with effects, arrows etc. One disadvantage is that QipShot hasn't much host sites, only qip.ru (or .com). I find this Greenshot tool overbloated with options, and these multiple image host sites are not needed IMHO, one or 2 are enough. I don't see why do i need so many host sites.
Needs to .NET Framework to run
Not so straightforward. Installed & set prefs to save output and show jpeg quality slider.
Not so straightforward. Installed & set prefs to save output and show jpeg quality slider. Pressed PrintScreen, & instead of an expected pic of my desktops in a save dialog, all it is is a crosshairs that you have to press Esc to make go away. Use Lightscreen instead: http://sourceforge.net/projects/lightscreen/
