Acerca de Lightshot

Ha sido una experiencia agradable, ya que basta con tener instalada la aplicación y al presionar la tecla PrtScr selecciono el área a capturar, lo que me simplifica el trabajo guardándolo instantáneamente sin necesidad de auxiliarme de algún otro programa o herramienta para su recorte como Paint.

Pros

Lo más impactante de Lightshot es que me permite capturar imágenes, en el momento que así lo requiera, ya sea de algo que vi en la web, de una conferencia, etc, de manera ágil y sencilla. Ahorrándome tiempo y pasos en todo el proceso.

Cons

Lightshot es una herramienta con la cual me siento bastante cómodo al tenerla instalada en mi ordenador.

Reasons for Switching to Lightshot

Porque puedo guardar la imagen directamente, sin necesidad de llevarla a otra aplicación, tras haber realizado la captura.

Instant and Unique Screenshots

I think Lightshot is the best at where it is. It's super easy to use, very convenient to share, and also has editing tools supporting it. It's available for free and hence no complaints about it.

Pros

Lightshot is a free program that offers a quick and easy way to capture a screen including basic editing tools. It's lightweight and easy to use the software. Lightshot offers the flexibility to capture any part/area of the screen. Not just that but one can also edit their photos instantly with their editing tool. With the editing tools, you can add your own creativity to the picture with text annotations, patterns, shapes, and much more. You can also instantly upload your screenshot to their server at one click and can share it easily using the link, which is shortened for ease of use. Another amazing feature is the Hotkey's feature, you can set your own shortcuts to capture screenshots instantly with ease.

Cons

So far I didn't face any problems using this software. Since Lightshot is free software, its features compare far more worthy than paid software. Hence there are no big issues with it.

Lightshot; the fastest way to take a screenshot!

I use the Lightshot whenever I want to save or share any information while browsing the internet or working on my device. Also, sometimes I use this for searching similar images on Google.

Pros

It is a free, lightweight (2.56 MB), simple and convenient screenshot tool. You can take a screenshot of any part/area of a screen and edit with its own editor tool which consists of Pen, Line, Arrow, Rectangle, Text, and Color. You can upload your screenshot on the server by just clicking "upload", and then you will get a link that you can share on any social media platform or anywhere. You can also save your screenshot on your computer/laptop. The "hotkeys" makes Lightshot a faster screenshot tool; it has its own hotkey for almost every task like: • Screenshot - PrtSc • Edit - Ctrl + E • Maximize - Ctrl + A • Copy - Ctrl + C • Save - Ctrl + S • Upload - Ctrl + D You can also take a printout of your screenshot.

Cons

When you edit your screenshot on your mobile, might you have problems using the "Rectangle" and "Circle" features. You can't remove its mobile notification until you choose to "STOP SERVICE".

Best tool and easiest way to take screenshot

Among the software tools which I have used to take screenshots, it is the best tool among them. It has made my work faster and convenient.

Pros

First of all, it is free and very easy to use. We do not have to open any software. We just have to click the PrintScreen button and select the area to take screenshots. We can just highlight the part which we want to explain or show. It has made my work faster. It does not consume much space as it is lightweight.

Cons

We cannot select the part, we want to change the marker marks. It does not contain an eraser as we have to click a back button to undo changes.

Reasons for Switching to Lightshot

I have to keep on opening the app and clicking the new button to take screenshots which was time-consuming. It did not have the square box highlight option.

King of the screen shots

I like it to be very simple and fast. It is very good that it can be set to full screen, a specific area or window.

Pros

It is very nice that it can take a screenshot of the open window with a single click. It makes creating a guide very fast.

Cons

Occasionally, the key combination on the keyboard may disappear, in this case you have to activate it via the system icon.
