How to post a screenshot using Lightshot.
#1
I'm making this guide because i've noticed a few people who don't understand how to post a screenshot here, and i've also seen some people use the attachments as a way to post screenshots.

So firstly, go to http://prnt.sc/ and click Download Lightshot in the top right corner, download it and install it.

Once it has installed, take a screenshot of whatever it is you want to post on here, however do not post the link it gives you here:
[Image: AwOmtwA.png]]

If you post that link the image will just show like [Image: 96bnyt] and it will not show on the post.

What you want to do is click the Open button, this will take you to the page of your screenshot, then once the screenshot has loaded, you want to right click on the screenshot and click on 'Copy Image URL' like I do here:
[Image: oFZADIt.png]

Doing this will copy an imgur link to your clipboard, now you're ready to post.

When posting on the thread, do not just post the link like: http://i.imgur.com/l98HiOJ.png, as it will not display on the thread. What you want to do is post using IMG tags.

The code is as simple as typing:
Code:
[IMG]yourimgurlinkhere[/IMG]

Once you send your post, the Image will appear with the rest of the post, and you can avoid being a :

I'm sure it's perfectly functional. My problem is that they leech off imgur for hosting and then stick a bunch of ads on it (ublock origin claims to have blocked 9 requests on the image you used as an example).

If you block the ads, why is it a problem?

The problem is that they're fucking leeching of imgur and adding screenshots, dumbshit. It doesn't matter that I block them, it matters that they tried it in the first place.

They create an application. Give it away for free and they're not allowed to try and make money by a few ads?

They'd be fine, except for one thing - they're using imgur's servers, increasing the cost to host those servers, and don't give a damn thing back.

If imgur had a problem with it, don't you think they'd do something about it?

I just take a normal screenshot (which puts it in your clipboard), then upload it to imgur from my clipboard. It might take slightly more time, but they even give you the BBCode tags so you save a bit on that.

Print scr → imgur.com → ctrl V → upload → ctrl C the BBCode → paste in post
versus
print scr → whatever you have to do in that program to open the link → right click and copy URL → paste link → write BBCode.

6 steps vs 5, but you won't have to write a thing, and you don't need a program or watch leechy ads.

Just screenshot, MS paint, save and upload to imgur

get paint.net or something if you're REALLY against MS paint or something though.

Can someone explain to me why they hate/dislike Lightshot?

EDIT: People don't use it because it leeches off of Imgur and Imageshack?
Okay, sure. You do you if you don't want to support it.

I use Gyazo. It's pretty simple

Press Printscreen -> Select the area of your screen you want to screenshot -> Image opens automatically in a new tab and you can rightclick on it to get it's URL

Then you just put that URL in between [img] tags and you're done

The problem with Gyazo is that you have to actually pay if you want to access older screenshots. Which is why I stopped using it.
