    Is it better than Greenshot ?

  • No :)

  • Think of Dropbox, or onecloud, or Box, or Skydrive, etc.etc..now think “Self Hosted” – that is what I use ShareX for, amongst many other things.

    I tried it one day, yes it is complete but probably a little too much for my needs (99% of the time I just want a imgur url). And it lacks an image editor to surround or highlight areas. So I stay on Greenshot for the moment

    ShareX actually has Greenshot’s image editor built-in. See this screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/hx6id8O.png.

    You can enable it by selecting ‘Annotate Image’ under ‘After Capture Tasks’. Additionally, you can also set ShareX to use other image editors via the ‘Actions’ tab under ‘Task Settings’.
