Great app… but...

Easy install, easy to use. Only issue I have is if you want to share images between computers you have to use Facebook or Google+. I never use the same password for services.. so the single sign on does not work for me. Another issue is that you are using their cloud storage, I would like to have an option of using iCloud, OneDrive, DropBox… or others. I would give a 5 star rating if the two issues were addressed.

Keep up the great work!

Good but missing features

I have used lightshot on Windows for years and loved how easy it was to quickly take a screenshot of something and get it posted in a Discord chat. I was happy to see they also had it on Mac but there are quite a few features that are missing in the Mac version. The biggest missing feature is you can’t change the location that it saves the screenshots too. You also can’t set it to auto copy the image link to your clip board, save the screenshot size, or login to your ligthshot account so all your screenshots get saved to your account. Thankfuly, it does still have all the image editing features so if you are looking for something to just simply take a screenshot and upload a link to a chat quickly then this works great.

My only request for the developers...

Allow users to adjust the size of markups. Why is it when I try to highlight something by putting a box around it it randomly goes from thin to wide? So wide that it completely conceals what i am trying to highlight.

Otherwise, for a quick and easy way to take a screenshot of an entire screen or any sized window and mark it up in real time is fantastic.
