Share screenshots via Internet

Do you want to share photos, images, parts of a webpage, or any content that you see on the screen with your friends? Simply start Lightshot by pressing the Print Screen key, select an area, and click “Upload.” You will get a link that you can share with your friends or post on your blog, Twitter, Facebook… anywhere!

Screenshot History

You can keep track of all your screenshots by signing in at Create a Lightshot account to see your screenshots in your own gallery. Here you can add captions and remove images you don’t need from the web.

Copy a screenshot to clipboard

You can copy a screenshot directly to your clipboard, and paste it into any suitable application such as Word, Paint, Photoshop, etc. This can be done either by pressing “Copy” or using the Ctrl+C hotkey. Another option is to hold down the Ctrl key before selecting the area; in this way you’ll copy the screenshot to the clipboard as soon as you release the mouse button.
