ShareX is a great productivity tool to take screenshots and share them online. It is ShareX to Share Everything, a free tool that you can download and install in Windows to take awesome screenshots and with lot of features. This is a great tool for researchers, presenters but also for bloggers and software developers. At FPPT, we use ShareX all the time to prepare screenshots for the blog posts published in our PowerPoint blog.
Once you download and install ShareX, a new set of hoykeys are configured by default so you can take screenshots easily and upload to remote sharing services. You can copy to the Clipboard and use the content copied to paste it in emails, documents, or even presentations in PowerPoint.

Aside of screen capture and uploader mode, you can also capture text and upload text to remote paste bin text repositories like pastebin, paste.ee, snippet.io and many others.
You can also upload files to Dropbox, Box, Minus, FTP, RapidShare, SendSpace, Ge.tt, a shared folder online, send by email or even using a custom upload service. This way, ShareX is a complete companion for anyone working in their computer and a great productivity app that will help you to save at least a few minutes every day.
ShareX also allows you to share your images and text using a shorter service like Google or configure social networks like Twitter to share your screenshots and text.
You can also configure what to do after the image or text is captured and uploaded, for example you can add a nice watermark or timestamp. Or you can add a border to the image. After uploaded, you can copy the link to your clipboard to ease the sharing process.
This is the most free and powerful capture tool and definitely you will love it. Formerly it was part of Zscreen but now the efforts were focused on ShareX. Next time you need a screen capture, file sharing and productivity tool, consider trying ShareX.
