Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool with the following key features:
- Quickly create screenshots of a selected region, window or fullscreen.
- Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.
- Export the screenshot in various ways: save to file, copy to clipboard, attach to e-mail.
…and a lot more options simplyfying creation of and work with screenshots every day.
NOTE: As some guys didn't find out how to start working with Greenshot, here's how: On the top of your screen is a clock. Somewhere on the left of it, you find a small G-icon. Click it. You also find the default hotkeys in the menu.

It’s Ok for now for the Mac version, but PC version is rock solid
This is the best screen capturing tool on the PC side. This Mac port is definitely work in progress. I like the basic feature where you can edit the image. But something small like after you put a rectangle around a section, you can’t control the fill color of the rectangle at this point. In the PC version, you can control the fill color or set it to transparent. The Mac version simply derfault one for you or at least I didn’t figure out how to change it if the feature exists in the Mac version.
But on the other hand, you have your basic editing tool like blurring the screen, cropping the image, circle outline to circle screen spots, rectangle outline to highlight an area, etc. But it is still quite a bit way to match up with the PC version. But I am glad that a Mac version is available and hopefully the features will catch up. Good work overall, but I can’t rate the current Mac version more than 3 stars for now. In due time, when the features have caught up, this can easily be a 5-star app if the Mac version is as good as the PC version.
Did everything by the book. Paid $1.99, DL’d the program and installed the latest version per App Store (at this time it’s 1.2.6). Trying to open it does nothing, will not launch, cannot snap screenshots. Rebooted PC, opened Finder and can see the program but still will not launch. Very frustrated beause I loved this program on my PC and never had any issues. I’m not here to complain or bash anything, just want someone to give me pointers ^_^ so I can get it working. The bug trackers and FAQ seem like a wild goose chase because noone really mentions the same issue I’m experiencing. FWIW, I can install and launch other programs without issue and if this is not possible I’d like my credit card to be refunded.
Help us out!
As so many others have already said, its severely lacking the functionality found on PCs. After some confusion, I finally found an obscure mention of going up to the clock in the top right corner, clicking on the G, and finding a few options for grabbing screenshots (manually setting area, or a whole window, or entire screen). Nothing like how we do it on the PC! Anyway, I selected “Capture Area”, the mouse pointer changed to the area selector, I selected “copy to clipboard”…. but now it won’t paste. Nothing. Tried again using the ctrl-1 hotkey, same steps, and again nothing to paste. So you’re giving full functionality on PC for free, vs no functionality on Mac for $2. Kind of like being given a Lexus for free, vs paying big bucks with no refund for a Ford Pinto lemon. I either need an app that works, or I need my $2 back. And no way to contact you guys for tech support… DON’T BUY IT PEOPLE!
