Free Screenshot Grabbing Tool with Powerful Features

ShareX is a screenshot grabbing tool with an impressive range of video and image editing tools. Once a file is saved, the software offers a range of filters, editing options and upload tools to rapidly share any number of files.

Lots to discover

With such a range of tools available, it can seem daunting to get a handle on ShareX. While simple saving and sharing can be done fairly simple, understanding everything else takes time. Saving images or videos can be done in any shape from a full screen to a custom free hand, watermarks applied in any level of opacity or shape. New images can be created with the built in creation tools and then applied to any number of purposes. For a free and open source project, with a surprisingly light performance, ShareX goes above and beyond.

Something for everyone
