Greenshot vs. Lightshot vs. Snapture: The Major Differences

Many people use Greenshot or Lightshot to capture screenshots on their computers. They are easy to use and well-known in many industries. However, we’ve created a brand-new screen capturing app called Snapture that we want to compare to these industry-leading programs.

The Snapture app isn’t as widely known as the other two, but its functionality is extensive. It can capture various areas of the screen, “snap” multiple screenshots together, create quick borderless clips that float above other applications, and more.

Greenshot, Lightshot, and Snapture all have pros and cons, and some users might prefer one over the other. This article will compare the major features of Greenshot vs. Lightshot vs. Snapture to help you decide which app is best for you.

Overview of Greenshot

Greenshot is an open-source program that’s only available for Windows. It’s great for grabbing information from multiple screens or an entire webpage. You can also crop and annotate your images or upload them directly to the internet.

The main downsides of Greenshot are that it does not allow for screen recording, and it doesn’t have many features for sharing your screenshots online. On the flip side, it does offer direct uploading to Imgur – but some users have reported this feature as insecure and unreliable.

Ultimately, Greenshot is a relatively simple program that does the job of capturing screenshots quickly. If you need to capture an image fast and don’t need extra features, Greenshot may be a good option.

Overview of Lightshot

Lightshot is a browser extension app available for both Windows and Mac. It allows you to capture what’s on your screen, annotate it, and upload the image to Lightshot servers or an external server of your choice.

Lightshot also allows you to search for similar images to what you captured. This is a unique feature that could come in handy if you are a creative professional who needs inspiration.

Unlike Greenshot and Snapture, Lightshot does require users to make an account to save and edit photos. Some users have also reported that the app lacks proper security when uploading images.

In short, Lightshot is a quick and easy-to-use screen capture app with basic editing tools.

Overview of Snapture

Snapture is a screen capturing app we’ve created specifically for Windows. We designed it to allow users to capture any region of their screens quickly and easily.

The Snapture app also includes a unique feature that allows you to snap multiple screen clips side by side. This is useful for taking product shots for your website or designing a presentation. However, Snapture currently lacks annotation tools. Users need to use a separate app to add notes to images.

We’re also considering adding annotation tools to the Snapture App, as that’s something many creative professionals may find useful. What do you think? Let us know!

In Conclusion

As you can see, Greenshot, Lightshot, and Snapture all have their pros and cons. While each of these tools has its own unique features, you may prefer one over the other depending on what they need to accomplish.
