Tools of the trade, AKA tools I couldn’t do without: Greenshot

One of the very first tools that I install on a rebuilt/new PC is Greenshot. From their website (emphasis mine):

Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool for Windows with the following key features:

  • Create complete or partial screenshots quickly.
  • Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.
  • Send the screenshot to a file, the clipboard, a printer or as e-mail attachment.

I find it really handy for taking screenshots, annotating them, and then pasting them into an email. Mine’s configured to automatically save the capture to a folder, as well as open it in the image editor. I can then make changes and re-save over the top of the already-captured image.

A handy keyboard shortcut in the image editor is CTRL+SHIFT+C. This copies the modified screenshot with annotations, obfuscations, etc to the clipboard.
