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

- Quickly create screenshots of a selected region, window or fullscreen.
- Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.
- Export the screenshot in various ways: save to file, copy to clipboard, attach to e-mail.

…and a lot more options simplyfying creation of and work with screenshots every day.

NOTE: As some guys didn't find out how to start working with Greenshot, here's how: On the top of your screen is a clock. Somewhere on the left of it, you find a small G-icon. Click it. You also find the default hotkeys in the menu.

WARNING for long-time Greenshot users: Greenshot for Mac is NOT as feature-rich as you might expect when you were using it on the PC before. We are doing our very best, but it may take a few months until you find the feature you are missing.

Version 1.2.1
Review by SwTesting

Greenshot for Mac, finally! - As a QA Analyst, I am constantly taking screen shots for defect reporting and validation. When I transitioned from PC to Mac, I struggled to find an easy to use screencapture tool. Previously on PC, I used Greenshot and loved it. I was so happy to find Greenshot for Mac. I’ll concede that the Mac version is a bit thin when it comes to feature set when compared to the PC version, but what features are present in the MAC version are easy to use. I feel that my productivity has gone up as a result of using this tool. Worth every penny and I look forward to future versions and more functionality.

Great, streamlined, intuitive - Finally for the mac. All the really nice and easy to use features I want for quickly and intuitively taking and editing screenshots. I’ve been using the Win version for years. Glad to pay money to support this software.

Review by mearloo

Definitely not at all like the PC version - Love the PC version very disappointed with the MAC version. NONE of the features that make Greenshot great in the PC version are in the MAC version.

Version 1.2.6
Review by Gronne

Nothing like the PC version. - If you’re looking for an experience of Greenshot like you get on your PC, look for something else. This is nothing like the PC version. It’s very very limited. You may as well just use Shift+Command+4 and save your money. It’s really misleading to even call this Greenshot. The PC version of Greenshot is AMAZING. This barely can be considered an app.

Version 1.2.6
Review by UnashamedGeek

Good start, but looking forward to more features - Like others, I love this program on Windows and hope it continues to be supported and gain options on OSX. I'd love for auto-borders to be an option or at least an easy way to add a border as you take screenshots. Thanks for bringing this over.

Version 1.2.6
Review by TotallyUnimpressed

Please keep working! - I *love* the PC version of this software, and having switched to the Mac platform, I can safely say that the PC version of Greenshot is what I miss the most. I’m happy that it’s now, at least, an option for Mac; taking screen shots on a Mac is kind of a pain otherwise, but the thing I miss the most is the ability to set an area to capture, and then reuse that same frame again and again and again. That feature alone would make this a 5-star application for me. I’m hoping it will make its way into future releases!
