A screen capture tool with photo manipulation tools

A review of LightShot by Tina de Pierre

LightShot is an easy PRINT SCREEN replacement tool for Windows, or in other words a screen capture utility with several enhancements.

The program's main enhancement over the built-in Windows tool is the fact that it can capture designated areas of the screen without having to open it up in an image editor to perform cropping. Also included is an online photo manipulation tool.

The online editor included with LightShot can modify the size of your screenshot, apply several different effects and save them as either PNG, JPG or BMP files.

Overall, this is a useful and simple program with a cool online-powered editor.

Features and highlights

  • Fast screenshot of selected area
  • Share screenshots via Internet
  • Similar image search
  • Easy-to-use application
  • Powerful online editor
