Climsy shares images on your clipboard via Dropbox and Imageshack

Every now and then, there's screen capture or image you stumble across that you just have to share. Climsy is a nice, simple Windows program which makes the process dead simple. It works the way FluffyApp does: take a screenshot or right-click and copy an image to your clipboard in any application, and Climsy will file it to a folder of your choosing or upload to either your Dropbox account,...

Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread allows screenshots with no root required

Up until now, all the Android app screenshots you've seen floating around have been taken using either the Android SDK or third-party applications which require root access. That's because Android -- unlike webOS and iOS -- hasn't provided a simple way for users to capture images on their devices' screens. According to Android Central, that has changed in Android 2.3.3. Rooting will no longer...

Skitch Plus now available as free upgrade for former Skitch Beta users

Back in December, we posted a review of the shiny new Skitch 1.0, and part of that was a small bit of lamenting over the fact that once proud beta-testers were suddenly left with the choice of either paying for a subscription to Skitch Plus, or simply losing some of the nicer parts of their favorite screenshot app for Mac. Luckily, that choice was somewhat short-lived, as former users of...

Snagit for Mac giveaway

It's no secret that Download Squad likes TechSmith's Snagit. Erez loved the Windows version and Sam raved about the recently-launched Mac version. In fact, the only real problem that both of them discovered is that Snagit, at almost $50, is quite expensive. With excellent, free tools like Skitch and Screenpresso, it's hard to justify such an expense. Which is why you should enter our giveaway!...

Hands on with Skitch 1.0, the best screenshot app for Mac

There's no shortage of screenshot apps out there, but for many Mac users Skitch has been an indispensable tool since its release in 2007. The Skitch team must have been working overtime recently, because years of beta status have finally come to a close with the release of version 1.0 -- which follows the recent redesign of Skitch.com. Along with the newly redesigned interface and added features...

FluffyApp updates, adds region capture and better tray controls

FluffyApp for Windows is a terrifically easy way to share screenshots and files online. Since it arrived with its CloudApp-for-Windows goodness, developer Richard Wang has been busy adding new features -- including several incredibly useful ones in version 0.8.7 and 0.8.8. For starters, FluffyApp now supports region selections, so you're no longer limited to full-desktop or program-window...

Did Microsoft Russia leak the new Internet Explorer 9 user interface?

This time the leaked Internet Explorer 9 image we're looking at is a bit more trustworthy than the mock-up we received back on April 1st. As Mary Jo Foley reports, the image above was posted by Microsoft's Russian PR site, though the post has since been pulled from the server and now returns a 404 error. If this is the new interface, it's certainly been simplified from the IE8 incarnation. A...

Shotty is a cute, fast, free screenshot tool, uploads included

What you see in the screenshot isn't Shotty; it's Shotty's home page. This used to be tacky, but I haven't seen it in a while. Shotty took a Windows 7-style window frame and created their whole site to resemble an application. This is a great metaphor for a screenshot application, and the execution is perfect. The buttons change correctly when you hover them, etc. It's very, very cute. Having...

Comment followup: Lightshot lets you quickly take and share screenshots

If your mind is reeling with the recent wealth of screenshot-related tools that I've started posting, don't worry; I will soon be writing a comprehensive roundup pitting them all against each other. Until then, I must thank reader nomi49 who left a comment for my SPGrab post that recommended Lightshot from Skillbrains. Lightshot sets itself apart with two main features. The first is a...

Gyazo provides instant, zero-hassle screenshot sharing

So you want to quickly share a screenshot with someone. Take a screenshot, put it in your Dropbox Public folder, right-click the file, copy the public link, and paste it in the chat window ... lather, rinse, repeat. This gets tedious after a while. Gyazo makes short work of this workflow, paring it down to one simple operation. You run Gyazo, take the screenshot, and you're done. A browser window...

New Google Chrome extension does dead-simple screenshots with annotations

Every now and then I need to quickly screenshot something from a browser window and pass it along to someone else -- say, a member of the DS team to point out an error or something post-worthy I've found online. While it's easy enough to use my desktop screenshot app and attach it to a new email message, the Explain and Send Screenshots extension for Google Chrome is an easy way to do it right...

Take easy web screenshots with Aviary

Aviary, maker of excellent web-based creative tools with bird-themed names, has done it again. The latest addition to their impressive collection is an easy-to-use web app for taking screenshots of any webpage. Just put the URL of the page into your address bar after http://aviary.com/ and you're good to go. Once you've got a page open in Aviary, you can crop and edit it online. The standard...

Is Windows 7 SP1 already being worked on?

If you were developing one of the most talked about pieces of software in the past decade and testing of your release candidate was going pretty well, what would you do next? Why, you'd start working on the first service pack for your as-yet-unfinished operating system! No, that doesn't make a lot of sense. You be the judge. According to information from Winfuture.de and Wzor.net - the Russian...

Open Source Greenshot does screenshots and annotations

For a while now I've been using ZScreen to handle my screen capturing chores on Windows. Brad touched on Greenshot back in December, and after being urged by one of my Twitter followers the other day I decided to give it a try. Since Brad's post, the author has responded to calls for the creation of an installer though Greenshot is still less than a half-megabyte download. The three key capture...

Linux screenshot app GScrot reborn as Shutter

With my triple-boot setup finally somewhat set in stone (or very firm clay, at any rate) I've finally been able to start installing Linux apps that I need to use it as an everyday operating system. Due in no small part to my duties here at DS, the first item on my list was a good screenshot application. Serendipitously, we just received a tip that GScrot (which should have appeared on my list of...
