LightShot works similarly to most screen-capture tools and is a lightweight software that will attach itself to your Prt Sc button. When you install it, there won’t be an executable file installed on your desktop.
Highlights :
Fast screenshot of selected area
LightShot for Windows PC allows you to select any area on your desktop and take its screenshot with 2 button-clicks.

Easy-to-use application
The simple interface of the app, its useful features, and lightweight make your work so very fast and pleasant.

Share screenshots via Internet
Upload your screenshot to the server and get its short link right away.

Powerful editors
You can edit screenshots instantly when taking them or later using a powerful online editor.

Similar image search
Find similar images. Select any image on your screen and find dozens of similar images.

Various Platforms
Light Shot is available for Windows/Mac, Chrome, Firefox, IE & Opera.

LightShot app lives up to its promise of providing users with an easy-to-use screen-capture tool.  You only have to press a key, click and drag, and then choose where to store your images. Much of the program’s issues just lie with how few options are available for you. For one, unlike some screen-capture software, you can’t record videos with this.
LightShot allows you to select and take a screenshot any area on your desktop with 2 clicks. Simple interface, nothing useless and light weight makes your work with the app easier. Upload your screenshots to server to get a fast web-link on it. Edit your screenshots as soon as you made them.
The tool’s image editor offers basic functions, which can be found on the right side of your selected area. The features include three shapes you can add to the screenshot: a line, an arrow, and a rectangle. You can also choose to do freeform drawing with two different types: pen and marker.
