More about this extension

*** ATTENTION: This version works only on Windows platform! ***

LightShot is a tool allowing you to easily make screenshots of any selected area.
You just hit Lightshot icon on the toolbar, then select area you want to make a
screenshot from and click “Save” or “Upload to server". In case of uploading you
instantly get link to a screenshot you’ve just uploaded.

It is possible to resize and move selection area right in a browser tab without
opening any additional applications. That makes the process very simple and
easy. You also can edit your screenshots (add text, draw lines and more
other functions).
There are other tricks to make screenshoting superfast:
   1. Press “Ctrl” and start selecting area with a mouse. After you finish the
       selection, the screenshot goes directly to clipboard.
   2. If you want to copy a screenshot to clipboard after you’ve selected an area
       just hit Ctrl+C as usual.
   3. Ctrl+S makes fast save in the most recent folder (or "My Documents" if none)
       without showing "Save As" dialog. Use it for fast saving screenshots in the
       same folder.

  2. Petrovi4 says:

    Great! The best screenshot maker for chrome
    But is it real to make the upload server customisable? I mean the uploading to other servers

  3. 2 Petrovi4: at this point we are not sure if we will implement this functionality, but we clearly understand the importance of this feature for users, this enhancement is already in our future list.

    Is this opensourced? If yes, where can we find the code? Thanks.
