We are pleased to announce that Dreamshot now supports upload to Imgur with URL to clipboard functionallity!

* Stop cluttering your desktop with screenshots — DreamShot lets you send them directly where you want, with one single keyboard shortcut.

* Each screenshot taken on your mac has a unique purpose. A specific reason for the capture. You need a method of taking screenshots that accommodates for all use cases, not just one or two.

* DreamShot becomes the brains of your screenshot workflow, presenting the most relevant options for dealing with your image. You select a destination, DreamShot sends it, then gets out of the way, with nothing left on your desktop. Try it once, and you’ll never go back.

* "DreamShot fixes all of the madness" - David Sparks of Mac Power Users

* When you capture an image with DreamShot, you are instantly presented with a large preview of the shot, and a list of options that is generated from the apps and services you use on your Mac. Send the capture anywhere with only one click. You can even print, copy to clipboard, send to Dropbox, custom folders, social networks, or any place that supports image import on your Mac.

* DreamShot frees your mind from the dozens of shortcuts required to work with screenshots on a Mac. Apps like Evernote, Skitch, Droplr, Cloud, and Voilà all have their own associated shortcuts to remember if you want to send a shot to them. Now you will be able to go to one place, with one shortcut, and have it adapt to why you are taking a particular screenshot, each and every time.

* Sync your shots between Dreamshot on the Mac and the IOS version. Even viewing your latest shot from your Mac on your Apple Watch. Convenient for referencing a quick bit of info on the go.
* Capture with Shift+CMD+D or any custom shortcut you choose.
* The menubar panel holds your previous screenshots for easy reuse.
* Drag a screenshot from the preview window to anywhere on your Mac.
* Hide unwanted destinations from view.
* Set a 'Favorites' destination to any place on your Mac.
* Instantly see a large preview of your screen capture and retake if needed.
* Instantly print, save, copy to clipboard, or open and edit preview.
* Responsive developers that love to hear from you!

* “I have to say that this application is amazing!”

Version 2.0
Review by McShamusSon

Dreamshot 2.0 - Great new release! Holds all the great features from before but this new layout is slick! I also love the new timed capture. This solves an issue where I needed to get certain things ready such as a menu to be opened before the screenshot was made. That feature takes care of this. Also the float window is a wonderful addition. Having it as reference and to be able to use that float on an additional capture is a great idea! In all excellent app.

Version 2.0
Review by Jim-Itunes

Stopped Working After Sierra OS Upgrade - This app is no longer working after upgrading my OS To SIERRA. No response from developer to my email requests regarding this issue. They seem to have abandoned this app some time ago. Was a great app. Looks like I will have to throw down some more money for a new one though.

Version 2.5.1
Review by DeniseFine

Stopped working!!! Now a waste of money! - I used this religiously on on two macs for over a year. One MAC I updated to sierra and the option where you can custom select the screen no longer worked at all. Then a few weeks later it stopped working on my Mavericks OS after it worked on it fine for years! Now all of a sudden when you take a custom screen shot only the previous files always come up to print or preview instead of the current one on the screen. NOT GOOD. They claim they fixed the bugs… I believe they added more bugs. I am dissapointed.

This was exactly what I needed - I use Greenshot at work for my PC and was looking for soemthing tht did the same type of thing for the Mac. I used Dreamshot today for the first time and it worked like a Dream. It saved me a a good 25 minutes on a project I was working on. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Version 2.5.1
Review by @littletonmiller

Software Doesn’t Work Anymore!!!!! - This software should be remove from the App Store - It no longer works (I can’t even see how it passed App Store review). The developer should be ashamed for not addressing these issues with it’s customers. #disgraceful

Version 2.5.1
Review by DavidWinograd

Doesn’t work! - Note: v2.5.1 Just released and it still doesn’t work but this time it crashes after the click and when choosing ‘reopen’ it crashes again. This, if anyone cares, is on a 27” Retina iMac with 2 screens. If the developer wants the problem report just ask. I’ve tried to contact them over a dozen times and can’t get a response. --------------------------------------------------------- I had hopes that this version would fix the problem with Sierra capturing a partial area of the screen, but it doesn’t They raised the price by $2 and it still doesn’t work. I was hopeful when I saw the capture cursor, but when I dragged over the area I wanted to capture and hear the encouraging shutter sound…. that was it. No window, no interface, no direction as to where the screen show was, nothing! I even tried booting into Sierra usng safe boot holding down the shift key to see if something was getting in the way, but that didn’t fix anything. I’ve been trying to contact SilverBeech Studios for at least a month, but there’s no one home. So unusable and no support.

Version 2.5.1
Review by Jim-Itunes

Somewhat Buggy on SIERRA - The latest update seems to have addressed some of the initial issues related to SIERRA. I still encounter a complete freeze of the program after deleting several screen captures causing me to have to force close it. Then upon re-opening the program, I get absolutely no response from clicking on the taskbar icon. No dropdown or anything. It remains non-functional until I reboot. And since I am not able to restart my computer very often due to a constant workflow, the program is still useless to me in it’s current state.
