  • Capture mouse cursor as annotation item that can be moved and deleted.
  • Customizable capture delay for all capture options.
  • Upload screenshots directly to imgur.com in anonymous or user mode.
  • Upload screenshots via FTP in anonymous or user mode.
  • Upload screenshots via custom user defined scripts.
  • Command-line support, for capturing screenshots and saving to default location, filename and format.
  • Filename wildcards for Year ($Y), Month ($M), Day ($D), Time ($T) and Counter (multiple # characters for number with zero-leading padding).
  • Print screenshot or save it to PDF/PS.
  • Annotate screenshots with pen, marker, rectangles, ellipses, texts and other tools.
  • Annotate screenshots with stickers and add custom stickers.
  • Obfuscate image regions with blur and pixelate.
  • Add effects to image (Drop Shadow, Grayscale, invert color or Border).
  • Add watermarks to captured images.
  • Global hotkeys for capturing screenshots (currently only for Windows and X11).
  • Tabs for screenshots and images.
  • Open existing images via dialog, drag-and-drop or paste from clipboard.
  • Run as single instance application (secondary instances send cli parameter to primary instance).
  • Pin screenshots in frameless windows that stay atop other windows.
  • User-defined actions for taking screenshot and post-processing.

Gnome Wayland X X X X X X
xdg-desktop-portal X
Windows X X X X X X
macOS X X X X

Installing Binaries

Binaries can be downloaded from the Releases page. Currently RPM, DEB, APT, Snap, Flatpak and AppImage for Linux, zipped EXE for Windows and APP for macOS in a DMG package are available.

Continuous build

All supported binaries are built for every pushed commit, to be found at the top of the release page. Continuous build artifacts are not fully tested and in most cases they are work in progress, so use them with caution.



To use AppImages, make them executable and run them, no installation required. $ chmod a+x ksnip*.AppImage $ ./ksnip*.AppImage

More info about setting to executable can be found here.


Just install them via RPM and use.

$ rpm -Uvh ksnip*.rpm
$ ksnip


Just install them via apt and start using.

$ sudo apt install ./ksnip*.deb
$ ksnip


Starting with Ubuntu 21.04 Hirsute Hippo, you can install from the official package:

$ sudo apt install ksnip

For older Ubuntu versions, you can use @nemonein's unofficial PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nemonein/ksnip
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ksnip

For Debian 11 and later releases, you can install from the official package:

$ sudo apt install ksnip

For Debian 10 and Debian 9, ksnip is available via Debian Backports. Please enable bullseye-backports and buster-backports repo for Debian 10 and Debian 9 respectively before installing using sudo apt install ksnip.


Ksnip is in the Community repository, so you can install it directly via pacman.

$ sudo pacman -S ksnip

If you want to build from the GIT repository, you can use the AUR package (make sure you build the necessary dependencies too).

$ yay -S ksnip-git kimageannotator-git kcolorpicker-git


The usual method for Snaps, will install the latest version:

$ sudo snap install ksnip

The continuous build version is also available as edge, in order to install it you need to provide the edge flag:

$ sudo snap install ksnip --edge

Snap startup time can be sped up and console output cleaned up from following error Could not create AF_NETLINK socket (Permission denied) by running the following commands:

$ snap connect ksnip:network-observe
$ snap connect ksnip:network-manager-observe

If you need to save screenshots to a removable media, the following additional connection is required:

$ snap connect ksnip:removable-media

This only needs to be done once and connects some Snap plugs which are currently not auto-connected.

Get it from the Snap Store


The usual method for Flatpaks will install the latest version:

$ flatpak install flathub org.ksnip.ksnip

Then just start it:

$ flatpak run org.ksnip.ksnip

Download on Flathub



The MSI installer installs ksnip on your system and is the preferred way for installing ksnip under Windows.


The EXE file with all required dependencies comes in a zipped package, which just need to be unzipped with your favorite unpacking tool. Ksnip can then be started by just double-clicking ksnip.exe.



The app file comes in a DMG package which needs to be opened and the ksnip.app file needs to be dragged and dropped into the "Application" folder. After that the application can be started by double clicking ksnip.app

Homebrew Cask

Just install via Homebrew and start using from your "Applications" folder.

$ brew install --cask ksnip


ksnip depends on kImageAnnotator and kColorPicker which needs to be installed before building ksnip from source. Installation instructions can be found on the Github pages.

Building from source

  1. Get latest release from GitHub by cloning the repo: $ git clone https://github.com/ksnip/ksnip
  2. Change to repo directory: $ cd ksnip
  3. Make new build directory and enter it: $ mkdir build && cd build
  4. Create the makefile and build the project: $ cmake .. && make
  5. Now install the application, eventually you need to run it with sudo: $ sudo make install
  6. Run the application: $ ksnip

If you are using Archlinux, you may prefer to build ksnip through AUR.


As with all continuous translations, contributors are always welcome! For translations Weblate is used. Translation status

Known Issues


  1. Snipping area with transparent background doesn't work when compositor is turned off, freeze background is used in that case.


  1. Snipping area with transparent background doesn't work, freeze background is always used. Issue #151
  2. Second activation of snipping area doesn't get focus, you need to switch to the right side in order to see the snipping area. Issue #152
  3. Mouse cursor is always captured. Issue #153


  1. Portal and Native Screenshots not working under KDE Plasma >= 5.80. The issue is coming from a recent change in KDE Plasma that prevents access to DBUS Interfaces responsible for taking screenshots. This issue is going to be fixed in future Plasma releases for the Portal Screenshots. Workaround for making the Portal Screenshots work is adding the string X-KDE-DBUS-Restricted-Interfaces=org.kde.kwin.Screenshot to the /usr/share/applications/org.freedesktop.impl.portal.desktop.kde.desktop file and then restarting. Don't forget to enforce Portal screenshots in settings. Issue #424
  2. Under Gnome Wayland copying images to clipboard and then pasting them somewhere might not work. This happens currently with native Wayland. A workaround is using XWayland by starting ksnip like this QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb /usr/bin/ksnip or switch to XWayland completely by exporting that variable export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb. Issue #416

Bug report

Please report any bugs or feature requests related to the annotation editor on the kImageAnnotator GitHub page under the "Issue" section. All other bugs or feature requests can be reported on the ksnip GitHub page under the "Issue" section.


Any contribution welcome, be it code, translations or other things. Currently, this is needed:

  • Write code and fix bugs for linux, windows and macOS.
  • Write wiki entries and documentation for ksnip.
  • Package ksnip for different operating systems and distros.


ksnip is a non-profitable copylefted libre software project, and still has some costs that need to be covered, like domain costs or hardware costs for cross-platform support. If you want to help or just want to appreciate the work being done by treating developers to a beer or coffee, you can do that here, donations are always welcome :)

  • Snipping area incorrectly positioned with screen scaling

    Snipping area incorrectly positioned with screen scaling

    Following up on https://github.com/ksnip/ksnip/issues/275.

    Unfortunately capturing rectangular screenshots (ksnip installed from the edge snap) doesn't seem to work for me in KDE Neon with my two 4k displays (zoomed to 150%). I guess that's because Qt is reporting the resolution after the zoom.

    Primary screen resolution: 2560x1440 Screen resolution(s): 2560x1440, 2560x1440

    ksnip thinks I have the full 4k resolutions but the screenshot only gets a part of full image.

    How my screen should look like (screenshot take with Spectacle):


    How it looks like when I want to grab a region with ksnip (sorry, hard to see because of the dark overlay of ksnip):


    On the left screen you see a big part of the right screen.

    Can't Copy Image to clipboard on Fedora with Wayland

    When using Fedora with the wayland session, and Firefox (native wayland), I can't copy and paste an image from ksnip into gmail compose or google docs. This is with both the latest rpm install, and the Gnome Software install (which is listed as updated Aug 29 2020 so it seems to be latest as well).

  • Snap not able to run custom upload script

    Snap not able to run custom upload script

    I'm trying to create a custom script for uploading screenshots with this tool to a Chevereto server.

    # from: https://gitlab.com/vaared/upload.vaa.red/-/blob/master/api-client/upload.sh
    if [ -z "$1" ]
        echo "No file found."
        exit 1
    TXT="$(curl -s -F "[email protected]"$1"" "https://example.com/api/1/upload/?key=complexkey&format=txt")"
    # echo "this is copied as a debug but image is never uploaded"
    echo $TXT

    The script works fine if I run it from a terminal (./upload.sh), but it doesn't seem to copy the URL or even upload the image when the tool runs it. In the command line, it says that it successfully runs: Upload Successful: Upload script /home/user/scripts/upload.sh finished successfully., however, the image is never uploaded.
    Is this an issue with ksnip or am I simply missing something in this script? Thanks!

Due to users choosing multiple versions & Windows 11, I chose to inform you, first so you know; then can determine what happened, choose to fix for compatibility for all, or just notate in release notes. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/fix-missing-vcruntime140dll-dll-error-in-windows/ VCRUNTIME is on the user for running an older Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable.

  • Add support for cross-platform wayland screenshots using xdg-desktop-portal

    Add support for cross-platform wayland screenshots using xdg-desktop-portal

    I noticed you currently use vendor-specific code to take screenshots on Gnome and KDE and do not support any other DE.

    I currently use sway and it's a shame ksnip is not able to take screenshots there.

    In fact there is a cross-platform way of taking screenshots, which I discovered here: https://github.com/lupoDharkael/flameshot/issues/446

    To quote that ticket:

    The cross-platform way to take screenshots on Wayland is via xdg-desktop-portal (which also works outside of Flatpak). See https://github.com/flatpak/xdg-desktop-portal/blob/master/data/org.freedesktop.portal.Screenshot.xml

  • Run ksnip as single instance

    Run ksnip as single instance

    Would it be possible to add the option of choosing single instance / multiple instances for Ksnip?

    I have Ksnip fixed to the toolbar, and during window transitions it is customary to click on this toolbar icon to activate the program, however when I do this Ksnip understands that I want to open it again, adding other icons to the tray. However, I would just like to call the already active instance.

    So the option to choose between single / multiple instances would be useful

  • Capture 'Rectangle Area' add a black 'Space/Desktop' on mac

    Capture 'Rectangle Area' add a black 'Space/Desktop' on mac

    Describe the bug On my mac, 'Rectangle Area' only works normally the first time when I start the ksnip app. And the next time, when I click new button again, only a cross mouse on my current work space, without a gray mask I cann't draw a rect on this work space. However, I find there seems another space when I switch to it, I can capture rect normally, and this space's display content is the same as my space.

    To Reproduce Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Open 'ksnip'
    2. Click on 'New(Rectangle Area)'
    3. Get the capture normally.
    4. Click on 'New(Rectangle Area)' for another capture.
    5. Only cross mouse without gray mask on current space, and I have to switch to another space to finish the capture.

    Expected behavior I can capture rect normally just on my work space.

    Screenshots On the left is my space 'Desktop1'. On the rightside, there is a dark 'Space' created by ksnip? It's not my 'Desktop2'. When I try to switch to the dark space, it just show whole dark for very short time and bring me to ksnip main window in Desktop1 automatically. I can only switch to the dark space when processing the new rect capture, and the dark space seems just show the content the same as Desktop1. Screen Shot 2022-11-19 at 8 33 40 AM
