ShareX is an open source program that lets you take screenshots or screencasts of any selected area with a single key, save them in your clipboard, hard disk or instantly upload them to over 80 different file hosting services such as Imgur, FTP, Dropbox, Mega and Pastebin.

User can select any or all of these tasks to be automatically run after each screen capture:
  • Add image effects: User can choose from over 37 image effects and apply multiple image effects and apply them to an image.
  • Add watermark: Adds customizable text/image watermark to image.
  • Annotate image: Using Greenshot image editor to annotate image.
  • Copy image to clipboard: Copies image to clipboard.
  • Print image: Be able to print images with printer device.

  • Save image to file as: Shows file dialog before saving so user can select where to write file to.
  • Save thumbnail image to file: Saves resized image as file.
  • Copy file to clipboard: Copies image file to clipboard.
  • ...and more.
Additional tools to make certain tasks more efficient:
  • Screen color picker: As the name suggests, allows user to retrieve the color from anywhere on the screen and provide values of Hue, Saturation, Brightness, and RGB.
  • Ruler: Allows user to get X, Y, width, height, distance and angle information on screen.

  • Image editor: Based on Greenshot image editor. It offers functions such as ability to add annotations, highlighting or obfuscations to the screenshot.
  • Image effects: Allows to apply over 37 different image effects with their own settings to image. Edited images can be saved in PNG or other formats.
  • Monitor test: Allows user to render different colors on the screen which provides user the opportunity to test for bleeding and dead pixels on LCD monitors.
  • DNS changer: Allows user to quickly change computer DNS settings with popular DNS servers such as Google DNS.
  • QR code: Open QR code window which user can enter text to get QR code of it. User can copy QR code image to user’s clipboard or save as file.

  • Edit image
  • For screen recordings, get window info to be able to use in file naming and history tags, so that way it is now easier to search for videos in history window
  • Added "Sub folder pattern for window" option to "Application settings -> Paths", so that way %pn (process name) and %t (window title) formats can be used for screenshots folder
  • Added "Auto copy image to clipboard" option to image editor
  • System admins can now configure certain ShareX settings via registry. These settings should reside in either HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ShareX key or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ShareX key. Please note HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE has priority over HKEY_CURRENT_USER while reading the settings.

  • Added "Borderless window" tool. Some games such as Minecraft don’t let you take screenshots (screenshots looks black) while running in exclusive fullscreen mode and there is no in-game setting for fullscreen borderless too. Therefore, we wrote this tool to let us make the game fullscreen borderless and allow us to take screenshots from it
