Screen Capture Sharing for Mac. Automatically uploads screenshots copy the url to your clipboard, ready to paste.

Step 1: Command-Shift-5 to Take a Screen Shot
Step 2: Command-V to Paste the Link

No additional steps added. Take a screen shot and Captured will upload the image automatically, and copy the link to your clipboard. Captured is designed to use very little system resources and has no clunky UI to deal with, all the processing happens in the background. Automatically.

Almost immediately after taking a screen shot Captured will upload the image to the server. While this happens the menu extra icon will change to full color to let you know it is uploading. Once it is complete the icon will show a green screen to let you know the upload has finished. At that point the URL of your screen shot is on the clipboard, ready to share.

The goal is to take a common task and stream line it to the absolute minimum possible. Allowing you to work faster, and spend more time thinking about your projects and not how you are going to share a picture. Need to find an image you recently shared, it's right there in Captured's history menu.

Captured uploads images to by default, but can be configured to use SFTP, Amazon S3 or even a custom PHP script.

Important Note: After installing Captured you have to double click on the icon to start it. When this app is running you will see the icon in the menu bar on the upper right of your screen. If you want Captured to start up automatically make sure to choose "Start at Login" from the menu.

This little app is a great time saver, well worth the money

I work remotely, so I'm all the time needing to show or see screenshots to help effectively communicate. My friends and I use this little app as a super quick way to send screenshots, and I'm able to update a client on my current progress on a project in a matter of seconds! I see some reviewers bashing the app, but it seems they were a little quick to judge. I admit to being a little confused the first time I used it, but once I figured it out, using it is second nature. The 2.0 version gives me a better feel that the app is doing something, plus it allows me to set options that make the experience a little more intuitive to me. Love the history and the ability to select either a window or an area capture.


So simple. So effective.

This app makes it so easy to share a screen shot with my colleagues that I do it literally all the time now. I don't have to worry about whether or not my email will get bounced for having a huge attached screen shot anymore. Just Cmd-Shift-4, wait a split second for the menu icon to turn green, and paste the link to the screen shot into a new email. I also love the app icon -- very clever! And the feedback of the menu icon changing color during processing is very effective.

Excellent App - Works Great!

I installed this app and it worked just as described. I did not have to sign up for an IMGUR account at all. My wife is constantly asking me how to do something over IM while at work and this is an easy way for me to send her a screenshot without the annoying process of saving a screenshot to desktop, opening email and sending it to her, which 9/10 times ends up in her works spam. Thanks for making my life 100 times easier!
