As much as I like Skitch on Mac, I just haven’t found an equivalent replacement on Windows (and completely given up on GNU/Linux, except to use GIMP…although I’m now trying out Shutter).

Update:  Shutter on UbuntuLinux–or other distros–is a great screenshot tool! it allows annotation, etc. Check it out if you haven’t already!

That’s why I read about the free, open source Greenshot with some enthusiasm:

Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool for Windows with the following key features:
Create complete or partial screenshots quickly.Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.Send the screenshot to a file, the clipboard, a printer or as e-mail attachment.

Since I’m running UbuntuLinux at the moment, I haven’t taken the time to load this up on Windows yet and give it a thorough test. Anyone done that?

getgreenshot.org

Update: Great tool, loved it. Greenshot made it easy to capture screenshots and was a no-brainer on Windows.
