    image

    Notes:

    • Shortcuts Ctrl+ +,- were used for another feature. Considering these shortcuts are wastly more common for the Zoom feature, I suggest to move the previously existing feature to Ctrl+ Shift + +,-

    • ~~Shortcuts for Actual size (100%) and Best Fit (Ctrl+/ and Ctrl+*) are chosen for the proximity on the keyboard and because of possible collisions for other choices. Of the software I use, Ctrl+/ for actual size is also used in XnView MP.~~

    • "Zoom" menu instead of "View" menu - because there are no other View features so far, I think it's more accessible this way.

    • Zoom display on the bottom right shows the same menu on click. Menu lists all possible values for quick access. I think this UI solution makes a good balance between usability and code complexity.

    Update:

    Summary of behavior changes:

    • New Zoom submenu in the main menu;
    • Zoom value display in the status bar, opens the same Zoom submenu on click;
    • New shortcuts Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- for Zoon In and Out, Ctrl+0 for actual size, Ctrl+9 for Best Fit (find a zoom value where no scroll is needed to see the entire image);
    • Feature previously existing on the same shortcuts is now moved to Ctrl+Shift++ and Ctrl+Shift+- - add empty borders to image, trim borders;
    • Clipboard paste (text and images) is now aligned based on currently visible area of image;
    • Editor window, when opened, is sized to fit on screen;

  • Cannot take screenshot on latest Windows 10 when / after using Slack window sharing

    Cannot take screenshot on latest Windows 10 when / after using Slack window sharing

    Describe the bug On latest Windows 10 I sometimes get to a situation where it's not possible to create a screenshot with Greenshot. When you try to capture a region, a small rectangle (about 100x50px) of the top left screen is randomly placed on the screen and that's the only area you can interact with to select the region.

    After restarting Windows the issue is usually gone. Happens only sometimes but it's pretty annoying ;)

    To Reproduce Example steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Capture region (either via context menu or using a key)

    Expected behavior Standard way to capture a region is available

    Screenshots This is how it looks when you try to capture a screenshot IMG_2646

    Versions (please complete the following information):

    • Greenshot version 1.2.10.6
    • Windows 10 (19043.1081)

    Additional context Only happens occasionally

  • Desktop refreshes every second after Screenshot to Clipboard was taken, Win11 (22504) and Greenshot 1.3.219

    Desktop refreshes every second after Screenshot to Clipboard was taken, Win11 (22504) and Greenshot 1.3.219

    On Windows 11 Insider (latest release, 22504.1010), Greenshot 1.3.219 causes endless desktop refreshes after "Print" key was used to capture a screenshot of a selected area and copying this to the clipboard. This onyl happens when the capture is copied to the clipboard, using file output works as expected. After taking some screenshots, the tray icons start to flicker and refresh every second, the same happens to the desktop and open windows. Computer gets slower and slower on each screenshot you take...

  • Greenshot 1.3.256 Crash

    Greenshot 1.3.256 Crash

    sorry I have no idea how to use JIRA so I'm reporting it here, feel free to close it if needed 😢

    Describe the bug I've installed Greenshot 1.3.256 a few days ago and it was working great (I often download an updated version of it for years already, this is my first crash that occurred with the Unstable version), it started happening today, a few hours ago for no reason, it was working just fine today morning.

    To Reproduce Example steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. It crashes whenever I press printScreen button (it is set to capture region for me)
    2. It also crashes if I try to screenshot using the menu option (any capture option)
    3. Every other option works (settings, etc)

    Expected behavior No crash.

    Versions:

    • Greenshot version: 1.3.256
    • Windows version: Windows 10 PRO 64bits

    Additional context If there is any file/log that I can provide to help debugging this, just ask. I'll include Greenshot.log here anyway:

  • Enhanced ability to crop an image vertically and horizontally. #249

    Enhanced ability to crop an image vertically and horizontally. #249

    I extended the cropping mode. Now you can crop the image horizontally and vertically.

    The CropContainer has three Styles DefaultCropStyle, HorizontalCropOutStyle and VerticalCropOutStyle.

    You can change the current style by clicking the crop button (C) again.

    The first click on the crop button (C) activates the last style the second click activates the next.

    HorizontalVerticalCrop

    DefaultCropStyle --> HorizontalCropOutStyle --> VerticalCropOutStyle --> DefaultCropStyle and so on.

    I chose this mechanism so that I don't have to add a toolStripItem for the crop style. That would have required a translation.

    The PR/MR covers the following features:

    FEATURE-539 "torn image in the middle" FEATURE-805 "Increase Crop functionality" FEATURE-873 "Bearbeitungsfunktion: Streifen ausschneiden" FEATURE-900 "Cut-Out cropping"

    Kown issue: sometimes I get a NullReferenceException when undoing (I am testing it some more)

    Multi Monitor does not work

    Hi,

    I came from 1.3.220 and installed the new 1.3.229 and 1.3.231 Version.

    I am running win 10 on a laptop in a dockin g station with 3 screens in total.

    With the 2 new Versions the capture is completly "messed" up. I am trying to capture something on screen 1 and the capture window is poping up on screen 3 and everything is "shifted" and "magnified".

    I tried a restart after installation but this does not help.

    Going back to Version 1.3.220 was working for me.

    This GitHub repository is for developers, if you want to report a bug for Greenshot as a user please do so in our JIRA issue system here: https://greenshot.atlassian.net/projects/BUGS/issues/filter=allopenissues

    Describe the bug The icons both on the Greenshot task tray menu and in the Greenshot screenshot editor are huge, 4x the size of normal.

    To Reproduce

    1. Use Dell XPS 15 with 4K screen on Windows 10
    2. Have laptop closed and connected to external Dell dock
    3. Have Dell 27" 2560x1440 screen connected to external Dell dock
    4. Log onto Windows
    5. Notice that Greenshot icons are messed up This is the only application I've noticed any scaling issues with in Windows 10 now.

    Expected behavior I expect the icons to be a normal size. I often use this same Dell 27" screen connected to my work laptop, which has a normal 1920x1080 screen at 125% scaling. On that laptop Greenshot behaves correctly.

    Screenshots Greenshot menu, note the normal size of Android Studio and Windows Explorer in the background: image

    Enable target Windows 11 ARM64.

    Minimal changes required to get it to compile for ARM64, with corresponding changes in setup.iss to cater for the "no, I won't set all subprojects to ARM64, some stay on Any CPU" behaviour. ARM64 builds in bin\ARM64\release instead of bin\release, and this requires some changes. There are other artifacts in the .csproj files I have no explanation for, only that VS2022 ARM Preview may do this automatically.

    The installation package works nicely here.

    Greenshot network traffic beacon every 5 minutes. Malware !?

    Hello,

    I noticed something very unusual in my firewall log. Greenshot seems to beacon to your server every 5 minutes.

    Even when I have update settings to only check every 14 days (default setting?).

    This same activity occurs for multiple users at my company, different computers all exhibit the same behavior.

    Why is this happening ? What data are you capturing ? This is very alarming.

    Is your source code secure ? Do you have a supply chain security problem ? Please investigate / fix.

Releases(v1.3.274)
  • v1.3.274(Oct 5, 2022)

    Release notes for Greenshot 1.3.274 unstable

    Greenshot 1.3 is the first Greenshot which targets .NET 4.7.2 which just by doing to solves some general issues in the area of Internet Explorer capturing, TLS communication and some other minor issues.

    We've also added some new Windows 10 functions, like notifications, OCR and sharing with Windows 10 apps.

    Supported platforms:

    As always Greenshot comes "as-is" with no guarantee whatsoever, supplying free software doesn't make it possible to go beyond that. Due to the amount of work involved in testing Greenshot on different platforms, and needing hardware to do so, we cannot support all of them. What does this mean?

    • Windows 11 - Greenshot should work without big issues. We expect to upgrade our primary development systems towards it some time after release, and have a better support soon.
    • Windows 10 "current" - We develop & test Greenshot on the latest available version of Windows 10, which means you can pretty much assume it works on there and if not we can work on it.
    • Windows 10 "previous" - We don't have the hardware to have all supported Windows versions side-by-side, we try to keep the compatibility high. If there are very Windows specific bugs, we can look at it. In general we add new Windows features with a check for the version, preventing issues with older versions.
    • Windows 10 insiders - If someone is on an insider, and wants to use Greenshot, there is no guarantee. But please do report issues, and make sure you mention the build you are on. As insiders are the next "current", we will try to look at this.
    • Windows 7 - this is no longer supported by Microsoft, and we will not buy extended support licenses for older Windows, we rather motivate people to upgrade to a normal supported version. It should still work on Windows 7, but we can't guarantee this and functionality will be degraded compared to that on Windows 10.
    • Windows 8(.1) - Greenshot 1.2 mostly worked on it, thus we assume 1.3 will do so too, but we can no longer support this.
    • Windows Server version XYZ- We do not have the hardware nor licenses to test on this, do so at your own risk. You can report issues, but we cannot support specific Windows Server issues, unless someone wants to pay for the time, hardware & licenses.
    • Linux via Wine or CrossOver - Although we made some small changes to Greenshot to get basics working, it's not supported and to be honest it's a lot of work to get it running, and the result is very disappointed. We are looking towards a more platform independend Greenshot, but this will take time and doesn't have our priority.
    • MacOS - We have a version of Greenshot for MacOS in the appstore here.

    Support for other software?

    We have many request, mainly from companies in form of "we use an eMail client from this company, and have a tool which does this cool thing, can you support this?" This depends, if it's something which benefits the masses, we can look at it. An example is PowerToys, where we interact with the maintainers to see how we can make Greenshot work together and not have PowerToys break us. We can't support all, and we cannot buy licenses & install every product.

    Let us see the changes:

    New features

    • The editor now has a zoom. Build by our awesome community member @KillyMXI PR #201
    • Windows 10 has out of the box OCR support, this can now be used from Greenshot. We added functionality which is on par with that we provided via an old Microsoft component called "MODI". To reduce our maintenance, we removed the old functionality. This is the first step with Windows 10 OCR, we have some great plans with this.
    • Greenshot can now use the Windows 10 app sharing, share screenshots with app which support bitmaps.
    • Greenshot now can use the Windows 10 notifications system, which looks better. We will add more user friendly functionality for this later.
    • FEATURE-1110: Making it possible to use a hotkey to open the clipboard, for details look at the issue.
    • FEATURE-1125: Add shortcuts (0-9, +/-) for foreground color, background color, line thickness, bold and shadow (#338)
    • #249 (#388): Added the ability to crop an image vertically and horizontally. Build by our awesome community member @Christian-Schulz

    General improvements:

    • Improved the about and error details with better version information, and OS name.
    • Upgraded the .NET Framework dependency to 4.7.2, any lower version would cause a lot of additional work and make the installer even bigger.
    • Used more recent versions of software components, which brings better/more functionality and make it easier to find bugs.
    • DPI improvements, so people have less issues using Greenshot with high DPI screens.
    • Made the selection boxes (grippers) bigger and resize with the DPI settings
    • Update check should have less impact with us and for the user
    • PR #224, #230: Added Italian to the installer, a lof of PR's from @bovirus
    • PR #216: Added support to generate random characters in the filename
    • Changed the cloud services Box, DropBox and Imgur to use the default browser in combination with getgreenshot.org instead of the embedded, solving incompatibility issues.
    • #348, BUG-2892 and more: Improved clipboard stability
    • #314: Added additional tray-icon click actions which support additional functionality with one click. (no setting UI yet)
    • FEATURE-1196: Selects a color with double click to close color dialog (thanks to @EricCogen)
    • #385/#384: Added support for more file formats, read more about it here

    Known issues

    • Bug #283: Drawing Unicode icons (emoticons) in the editor, this is an generic Windows issue with the technology we currently use.
    • Bug #326: Rounded corners of Windows 11 windows should be transparent

    Support for other software?

    We have many request, mainly from companies in form of "we use an eMail client from this company, and have a tool which does this cool thing, can you support this?" This depends, if it's something which benefits the masses, we can look at it. An example is PowerToys, where we interact with the maintainers to see how we can make Greenshot work together and not have PowerToys break us. We can't support all, and we cannot buy licenses & install every product.

    Let us see the changes:

    New features

    • The editor now has a zoom. Build by our awesome community member @KillyMXI PR #201
    • Windows 10 has out of the box OCR support, this can now be used from Greenshot. We added functionality which is on par with that we provided via an old Microsoft component called "MODI". To reduce our maintenance, we removed the old functionality. This is the first step with Windows 10 OCR, we have some great plans with this.
    • Greenshot can now use the Windows 10 app sharing, share screenshots with app which support bitmaps.
    • Greenshot now can use the Windows 10 notifications system, which looks better. We will add more user friendly functionality for this later.

    General improvements:

    • Improved the about and error details with better version information, and OS name.

  • v1.3.265(Jun 30, 2022)

    Release notes for Greenshot 1.3.265 unstable

    Greenshot 1.3 is the first Greenshot which targets .NET 4.7.2 which just by doing to solves some general issues in the area of Internet Explorer capturing, TLS communication and some other minor issues.

    We've also added some new Windows 10 functions, like notifications, OCR and sharing with Windows 10 apps.

    Supported platforms:

    As always Greenshot comes "as-is" with no guarantee whatsoever, supplying free software doesn't make it possible to go beyond that. Due to the amount of work involved in testing Greenshot on different platforms, and needing hardware to do so, we cannot support all of them. What does this mean?

    • Windows 11 - Greenshot should work without big issues. We expect to upgrade our primary development systems towards it some time after release, and have a better support soon.
    • Windows 10 "current" - We develop & test Greenshot on the latest available version of Windows 10, which means you can pretty much assume it works on there and if not we can work on it.

    Greenshot-INSTALLER-1.3.262-UNSTABLE.exe(3.92 MB)
  • v1.3.260(Jun 26, 2022)

    Release notes for Greenshot 1.3.260 unstable

    Greenshot 1.3 is the first Greenshot which targets .NET 4.7.2 which just by doing to solves some general issues in the area of Internet Explorer capturing, TLS communication and some other minor issues.

    We've also added some new Windows 10 functions, like notifications, OCR and sharing with Windows 10 apps.

    Supported platforms:

    As always Greenshot comes "as-is" with no guarantee whatsoever, supplying free software doesn't make it possible to go beyond that. Due to the amount of work involved in testing Greenshot on different platforms, and needing hardware to do so, we cannot support all of them. What does this mean?

    • Windows 11 - Greenshot should work without big issues. We expect to upgrade our primary development systems towards it some time after release, and have a better support soon.
    • Windows 10 "current" - We develop & test Greenshot on the latest available version of Windows 10, which means you can pretty much assume it works on there and if not we can work on it.
    • Windows 10 "previous" - We don't have the hardware to have all supported Windows versions side-by-side, we try to keep the compatibility high. If there are very Windows specific bugs, we can look at it. In general we add new Windows features with a check for the version, preventing issues with older versions.
    • Windows 10 insiders - If someone is on an insider, and wants to use Greenshot, there is no guarantee. But please do report issues, and make sure you mention the build you are on. As insiders are the next "current", we will try to look at this.
    • Windows 7 - this is no longer supported by Microsoft, and we will not buy extended support licenses for older Windows, we rather motivate people to upgrade to a normal supported version. It should still work on Windows 7, but we can't guarantee this and functionality will be degraded compared to that on Windows 10.
    • Windows 8(.1) - Greenshot 1.2 mostly worked on it, thus we assume 1.3 will do so too, but we cannot support this.
    • Windows Server version XYZ- We do not have the hardware nor licenses to test on this, do so at your own risk. You can report issues, but we cannot support specific Windows Server issues, unless someone wants to pay for the time, hardware & licenses.
    • Linux via Wine or CrossOver - Although we made some small changes to Greenshot to get basics working, it's not supported and to be honest it's a lot of work to get it running, and the result is very disappointed. We are looking towards a more platform independend Greenshot, but this will take time and doesn't have our priority.
    • MacOS - We have a version of Greenshot for MacOS in the appstore here.

    Support for other software?

    We have many request, mainly from companies in form of "we use an eMail client from this company, and have a tool which does this cool thing, can you support this?" This depends, if it's something which benefits the masses, we can look at it. An example is PowerToys, where we interact with the maintainers to see how we can make Greenshot work together and not have PowerToys break us. We can't support all, and we cannot buy licenses & install every product.

    Let us see the changes:

    New features

    • The editor now has a zoom. Build by our awesome community member @KillyMXI PR #201
    • Windows 10 has out of the box OCR support, this can now be used from Greenshot. We added functionality which is on par with that we provided via an old Microsoft component called "MODI". To reduce our maintenance, we removed the old functionality. This is the first step with Windows 10 OCR, we have some great plans with this.
    • Greenshot can now use the Windows 10 app sharing, share screenshots with app which support bitmaps.
    • Greenshot now can use the Windows 10 notifications system, which looks better. We will add more user friendly functionality for this later.
    • FEATURE-1110: Making it possible to use a hotkey to open the clipboard, for details look at the issue.
    • FEATURE-1125: Add shortcuts (0-9, +/-) for foreground color, background color, line thickness, bold and shadow (#338)
    • #249 (#388): Added the ability to crop an image vertically and horizontally. Build by our awesome community member @Christian-Schulz

    General improvements:

    • Improved the about and error details with better version information, and OS name.
    • Upgraded the .NET Framework dependency to 4.7.2, any lower version would cause a lot of additional work and make the installer even bigger.
    • Used more recent versions of software components, which brings better/more functionality and make it easier to find bugs.
    • DPI improvements, so people have less issues using Greenshot with high DPI screens.
    • Made the selection boxes (grippers) bigger and resize with the DPI settings
    • Update check should have less impact with us and for the user
    • PR #224, #230: Added Italian to the installer, a lof of PR's from @bovirus
    • PR #216: Added support to generate random characters in the filename
    • Changed the cloud services Box, DropBox and Imgur to use the default browser in combination with getgreenshot.org instead of the embedded, solving incompatibility issues.
    • #348, BUG-2892 and more: Improved clipboard stability
    • #314: Added additional tray-icon click actions which support additional functionality with one click. (no setting UI yet)
    • FEATURE-1196: Selects a color with double click to close color dialog (thanks to @EricCogen)
    • #385/#384: Added support for more file formats, read more about it here

    Greenshot-INSTALLER-1.3.249-UNSTABLE.exe(3.36 MB)
  • v1.3.239(Feb 8, 2022)

    Release notes for Greenshot 1.3.239 unstable

    Greenshot 1.3 is the first Greenshot which targets .NET 4.7.2 which just by doing to solves some general issues in the area of Internet Explorer capturing, TLS communication and some other minor issues.

    We've also added some new Windows 10 functions, like notifications, OCR and sharing with Windows 10 apps.

    Supported platforms:

    As always Greenshot comes "as-is" with no guarantee whatsoever, supplying free software doesn't make it possible to go beyond that. Due to the amount of work involved in testing Greenshot on different platforms, and needing hardware to do so, we cannot support all of them. What does this mean?

    • Windows 11 - Greenshot should work without big issues. We expect to upgrade our primary development systems towards it some time after release, and have a better support soon.
    • Windows 10 "current" - We develop & test Greenshot on the latest available version of Windows 10, which means you can pretty much assume it works on there and if not we can work on it.
    • Windows 10 "previous" - We don't have the hardware to have all supported Windows versions side-by-side, we try to keep the compatibility high. If there are very Windows specific bugs, we can look at it. In general we add new Windows features with a check for the version, preventing issues with older versions.
    • Windows 10 insiders - If someone is on an insider, and wants to use Greenshot, there is no guarantee. But please do report issues, and make sure you mention the build you are on. As insiders are the next "current", we will try to look at this.
    • Windows 7 - this is no longer supported by Microsoft, and we will not buy extended support licenses for older Windows, we rather motivate people to upgrade to a normal supported version. It should still work on Windows 7, but we can't guarantee this and functionality will be degraded compared to that on Windows 10.
    • Windows 8(.1) - Greenshot 1.2 mostly worked on it, thus we assume 1.3 will do so too, but we cannot support this.
    • Windows Server version XYZ- We do not have the hardware nor licenses to test on this, do so at your own risk. You can report issues, but we cannot support specific Windows Server issues, unless someone wants to pay for the time, hardware & licenses.
    • Linux via Wine or CrossOver - Although we made some small changes to Greenshot to get basics working, it's not supported and to be honest it's a lot of work to get it running, and the result is very disappointed. We are looking towards a more platform independend Greenshot, but this will take time and doesn't have our priority.
    • MacOS - We have a version of Greenshot for MacOS in the appstore here.

    Support for other software?

    We have many request, mainly from companies in form of "we use an eMail client from this company, and have a tool which does this cool thing, can you support this?" This depends, if it's something which benefits the masses, we can look at it. An example is PowerToys, where we interact with the maintainers to see how we can make Greenshot work together and not have PowerToys break us. We can't support all, and we cannot buy licenses & install every product.

    Let us see the changes:

    New features

    • The editor now has a zoom, completely build by our awesome community member @KillyMXI PR #201
    • Windows 10 has out of the box OCR support, this can now be used from Greenshot. We added functionality which is on par with that we provided via an old Microsoft component called "MODI". To reduce our maintenance, we removed the old functionality. This is the first step with Windows 10 OCR, we have some great plans with this.
    • Greenshot can now use the Windows 10 app sharing, share screenshots with app which support bitmaps.
    • Greenshot now can use the Windows 10 notifications system, which looks better. We will add more user friendly functionality for this later.
    • FEATURE-1110: Making it possible to use a hotkey to open the clipboard, for details look at the issue.
    • FEATURE-1125 Add shortcuts (0-9, +/-) for foreground color, background color, line thickness, bold and shadow (#338)

    General improvements:

    • Improved the about and error details with better version information, and OS name.
    • Upgraded the .NET Framework dependency to 4.7.2, any lower version would cause a lot of additional work and make the installer even bigger.
    • Used more recent versions of software components, which brings better/more functionality and make it easier to find bugs.
    • DPI improvements, so people can use Greenshot with high DPI screens.
    • Made the selection boxes (grippers) bigger and resize with the DPI settings
    • Update check should have less impact with us and for the user
    • Added Italian to the installer, a lof of PR's from @bovirus e.g. PR #224, #230
    • Added support to generate random characters in the filename PR #216
    • Changed the cloud services Box, DropBox and Imgur to use the default browser in combination with getgreenshot.org instead of the embedded, solving incompatibility issues.
    • Improved clipboard stability (#348, BUG-2892 and more)
    • #314 Added additional tray-icon click actions which support additional functionality with one click. (no setting UI yet)
    • FEATURE-1196: Selects a color with double click to close color dialog (thanks to @EricCogen)

  • Greenshot-RELEASE-1.2.8.14(Nov 3, 2016)

    Changes for this release:

    This version is only a small improvement over Greenshot 1.2.8.12, we backported (copied)
    some fixes for Imgur from Greenshot 1.2.9 (which should be available as a release in a few weeks).

    As some might have noticed, we have a new website which we moved to a new hosting platform. While doing this we noticed that the Greenshot update checks are way to often causing a very heavy load, so this needed to be reduced.

  • Greenshot-RELEASE-1.2.8.12(Nov 10, 2015)

    There were some major issues with the authenticated (non anonymous) uploads to Imgur. After contacting Imgur they told us that their old API was deprecated or disabled, unfortunately this was not communicated. Although we are working hard on Greenshot 1.3, where we changed most of the Imgur code already, we can't release it. We did see a need to fix the imgur uploads, so in this release we quickly updated the Imgur API. This should resolve a lot of tickets that were reported to us.

    Additionally our website http://getgreenshot.org is hosted by sourceforge and they seem to have a lot of stability problems. Due to these problems a bug in the Greenshot update check manifested itself and causes Greenshot to get slow or even stop responding. In this version we fix the bug in the update check, and we are also working on a solution for the instability with our website.

    Bugs Resolved:

    | Ticket | Description | | --- | --- | | BUG-1527,BUG-1848,BUG-1850,BUG-1851,BUG-1859 | Greenshot stops responding, hangs or crashes | | BUG-1843,BUG-1844,BUG-1846 | Authenticated uploads to Imgur don't work | | BUG-1864 | Imgur link wasn't copied to the clipboard |

    Features:

    | Ticket | Description | | --- | --- | | FEATURE-896 | Use Imgur with HTTPS (with changing the Imgur API from V2 to V3 this was already required for the upload anyway.) |

    Known bugs & workarounds:

    | Ticket | Description | | --- | --- | | BUG-1852 | When using the Imgur & clipboard destinations together, the imgur export Uri overwrites the clipboard image. The current workaround -> Change the CopyLinkToClipboard flag to false in the greenshot.ini |
