Best screen capture for Windows, Linux, Mac, and bloggers
Greenshot ranks first in the best screen capture list because I still use it today.
Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool for Windows with the main features I quoted from the official greenshot website:
- Quickly create screenshots of a selected region, window or fullscreen; you can even capture complete (scrolling) web pages from Internet Explorer.
- Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.
- Export the screenshot in various ways: save to file, send to the printer, copy to clipboard, attach to e-mail, send Office programs or upload to photo sites like Flickr or Picasa, and others.
The drawback is greenshot can only be used on windows user and mac. Download the greenshot here.
