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:
