    He means Droplr, thats why one of the alternatives he put in the list is Dropbox, you just had to read the article.

    And yes, Dropbox works very well you just prt scrn and it goes to the cloud and you share it away.

    I've never needed more than the snipping tool that comes with Windows.

    Although is true, the snipping tool is great, it's not very powerful as in the option to share it easily without having to actually do the uploading and sharing part yourself but, as the topic says, alternative to sharing solutions the snipping tool is not the best option.
    Dropbox on the other hand (that is the solution I use, so there could be better) you just need to take a screenshot by pressing the prt scrn button in the keyboard (or alt+prt for just the window) and automaticly takes a screenshot and uploads it to your private cloud, from which you can share a link that can be seen by users who don't necesarily have to have a dropbox account, sharing without a hassle.

    As in the ability to choose what to share without having to worry about sharing the world your bank statement or recovery key for your products.

    Wow, had no idea all this existed. To create the image I just use PrtScn, paste into Paint, crop as necessary, saves in any picture format you need (jpeg, png etc). Paint will also let you 'wipe out' sensitive things easily

    JetScreenshot has a free and a paid solution. Paid is USD 30/yr.

    A very simple, yet powerful screenshot application. It can capture Aero transparency, shadow, and pretty much everything in between. Best part, it's free! I use it all the time when it come to making preview for the themes I make for Windows 8+

    My favorite, lightshot. It's configured to already make use of the prt sc button after you install

    Ahh...I used Gadwin PrintScreen at a previous job for making up tip sheets. Then this new job I'm at they didn't have anything for Windows. I did a little research for the Mac I work with. (Company is 60% Window users and 40% Mac users. So had to learn Macs!) Then I found out about the Snipping Tool in Windows that I had no clue existed! It works great for making tip sheets. I've made a few with it. (I like making Tip Sheets lol!)
