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 1.2.6
Review by Eliyyah

Not Launching - Did everything by the book. Paid $1.99, DL’d the program and installed the latest version per App Store (at this time it’s 1.2.6). Trying to open it does nothing, will not launch, cannot snap screenshots. Rebooted PC, opened Finder and can see the program but still will not launch. Very frustrated beause I loved this program on my PC and never had any issues. I’m not here to complain or bash anything, just want someone to give me pointers ^_^ so I can get it working. The bug trackers and FAQ seem like a wild goose chase because noone really mentions the same issue I’m experiencing. FWIW, I can install and launch other programs without issue and if this is not possible I’d like my credit card to be refunded. Thanks

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 Ldwbb

The best - The ability to customize what window opens after taking a screenshot, where the screenshot is automatically saved or exported to, this is brilliant. So glad it’s available for Mac now. Would definitely pay a few bucks more if I knew that it would eventually become as capable as the Windows side. Awesome app. I’m an instructional designer and this is the only one I want to use...

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.
