Good but missing features

I have used lightshot on Windows for years and loved how easy it was to quickly take a screenshot of something and get it posted in a Discord chat. I was happy to see they also had it on Mac but there are quite a few features that are missing in the Mac version. The biggest missing feature is you can’t change the location that it saves the screenshots too. You also can’t set it to auto copy the image link to your clip board, save the screenshot size, or login to your ligthshot account so all your screenshots get saved to your account. Thankfuly, it does still have all the image editing features so if you are looking for something to just simply take a screenshot and upload a link to a chat quickly then this works great.

Quickest and Best Screenshotting App EVER!

Love it! Simple and easy to use. Just click, drag and drop. Then click “copy” button by the link that appears after if you wanna show your screenshot to someone else. It doesn’t even open a browser for you unless you click the “open” button to do so. So quick and effective. Definitely one of my favorite apps now. Kudos to you Lightshot for an extremely useful app!

What am I doing wrong?

I can’t figure out how this app works. Might be because I still don’t know how my own MacBook works. But I have to go into the App store to open the app, even though I’ve downloaded it. It doesn’t show up on my desktop or toolbar anywhere. So then, the App Store is open, and I can’t get to the actual image that I want to screenshot. When I click to Open the app, it just pulls up that little toolbar, and I can’t get out of the App Store screen to open the page I want to screenshot. This is so ridiculous. What else is out there that is simpler to use??
