Imgur-Screenshot, simple and fast screenshots to upload to Imgur


Our screenshots are a very practical way of displaying content, either for Tutorials educational or to complement pages like these in Linux Addicts, where we seek to show some applications or distros with their news. They say that an image is worth a thousand words and there is something of that, but in order to obtain decent images a complete tool is needed for such purposes, so today we want to show a very interesting and worthy of note, called Imgur-Screenshot.

It is a multiplatform application that allows us take screenshots in a simple and fast way, with good customization options and that, as we can well imagine, allows us later upload them to Imgur, the popular image hosting site. Complete combo for a task that those who use periodically know well how important it can be, and how complicated when we do not have the right tools for it, that is why the very good functionality that Imgur-Screenshot offers us.

Among them we can mention the possibility of uploading screenshots just taken or images already existing on our hard drive, copy the Imgur links to our clipboard (in order to share the links in the way we see fit), upload images anonymously or through our account, upload to existing albums or create new ones, history of links and files created, automatic removal of the local image once we upload it to the network, notifications updates and more.

We said that Imgur-Screenshot It is a multiplatform tool but here we are going to concentrate on what to GNU / Linux respect, and in our operating system we need to resolve a few dependencies to be able to install it, which in most cases will be a subject for the package manager of our distro (on the website they offer us an explanation for the most representative distros) and when the case we can also download source code and compile since we are facing a free software application. At the end we can test if everything is OK using the following command: --check

    As this blog always violates copyright, here I put the link of the post that you have copied

    As always this blog is using the work of others without mentioning the source

      Reizor, your accusation is false and malicious.
      I am an Imgur user, I have the app for Android and checking their apps I saw this list on their website:

      I went to your website, I saw features and I was interested to show it here. Only there wasn't a good screenshot so I looked for one and it's from the site you mention. Something that is duly clarified in the image (it says "Image owned by the WebUpd8 site").
      Next time you may want to inform yourself better before writing without a foundation.

    The only novelty is to upload to the cloud, the rest I can do with the print screen key

      It is neither false nor malicious. Without fail in this regard I tell you the following:

      1- Nowhere is it mentioned that the image is provided by WebUpd8. You violate copyright as you do not comply with the CC license of WEbUpd8

      2- Without even reading anything in the post, I knew the source. You shoot the majority of WebUpd8 articles and never mention the source

      3- This website is limited to writing about topics written by other bloggers who strive to create something different and stylish. Examples I can tell you the Replicator, Yoyo Fernandez, Webupd8, Geekland, etc.

      I find it wrong that computer scientists like you dedicate themselves to lending ideas, content and images of people who are not computer scientists and write articles that are summaries of what these people and others write. (Be careful and all this without mentioning people who do spend hours writing posts)

      If you want an example of what I'm saying ... I can give it ... I can make a good list of links for people to judge.

      I write this and presumably moderation will not pass. If it happens, it will speak well of you, if it does not happen, you will simply be agreeing with me and sooner or later everyone receives what they deserve.

      Greetings without malice. I only describe what I see.

        By hovering the mouse pointer over the image, you can clearly see the text "Image owned by WebUpd8 site."

        The news on WebUpd8 was published in April:
        Meanwhile, in OMG! Ubuntu! appeared very recently:

        If I had wanted to steal it, wouldn't it be more logical to have done it from the latter and not from WebUpd8 as you claim? I simply took the image from there because when I did an image search in Google I found that one, if I had found it on any other site I would have put "Image owned by xxxyyy site" as I always do.

        For my part, I end this here, it makes no sense to argue with those who believe they are owners of the truth.

          Yes, of course, I bet what you want that everyone will find out that the property is WebUpd8. When you want to mention someone's work, you must link it and it is not done with the title that is attached to an image. Being a computer scientist, I imagine you know, right? The only thing you have done with the image is to take advantage of the work of a third party because the title in one image does not help the other website in terms of SEO.

          I find it incredible that you write on a topic that you have not or tried. If you had tried it yourself, you could have taken a screenshot equal to the one you have appropriated. Making the capture is 5 seconds? and also you do not have to search for images on the Internet (much slower).

          Well. You mention another website. I see that you have had 2 websites to read, copy - rewrite and in some cases paste the parts that you consider appropriate to write something in 10 minutes. Do not be sad. In blogs like Linuxadictios and Ubunlog, what I just mentioned is a common practice. The procedure is to Read, rewrite summarizing and publish so that in 10 minutes the post is ready to serve.

          Well, if you don't want to discuss the subject further, that's fine. At least post this comment and properly link the work of others. And when you write to be able to be about something that you put into practice, but still require a minimum of articles per month ... I don't know ..

          I thank you for not censoring my comments. Most websites will not tolerate the criticism I make.
