good annotation app, but no uploads to imgur?

Can you please please add the ability to upload screenshots to user's imgur account? That would make this app 5 stars.


Best annotation app out there. Needs more upload options to be truly seamless. (My personal need is Google Drive.)

2.1.4 Fixes issues with macOS 10.12 Sierra

I’m delighted they got an update out that fixes the issues with macOS 10.12 Sierra. It’s by far my favorite screenshot and annotate tool. It’s SO quick and easy!

It should not be ignored however that it seems like since the days it was called Glui that the app breaks on _every_ major OS update. Even long after beta/GMs of the OS were avialable and fixes could have been provided this is the one app I use that never seems to work after updating.

It still gets 5 stars for keeping things simple and making it all easy. All the other screenshot apps try do too much and complicate things resulting in much slower workflows for capturing, annotating and uploading a screen shot.
