Easy and convenient screenshot tool. Allows you to make screenshots of any selected area (video and flash too), edit and upload it to server.
LightShot is a tool allowing you to easily make screenshots of any selected area in a browser tab. You just hit Lightshot icon on the toolbar or status bar, then select area you want to make a screenshot from and click “Save” or “Upload to server". In case of uploading you instantly get link to a screenshot you’ve just uploaded.
It is possible to resize and move selection area right in a browser tab without opening any additional applications. That makes the process very simple and easy. You also can edit your screenshots (add text, draw lines and more other functions).
There are other tricks to make screenshoting superfast:
1. Press “Ctrl” and start selecting area with a mouse. After you finish the selection, the screenshot goes directly to clipboard.
2. If you want to copy a screenshot to clipboard after you’ve selected an area just hit Ctrl+C as usual.
3. Ctrl+S makes fast save in the most recent folder (or "My Documents" if none) without showing "Save As" dialog. Use it for fast saving screenshots in the same folder.
