This worked at first .. uploading to Imgur. It has not worked in two weeks now and I've uninstalled/reinstalled. I've tried the Mint package and Flathub, but only get "Error transferring https://api.imgur.com/3/image?title=&description=2024-03-08_23-48 - server replied: client read error"

Works like a charm! Drawing a red rectangle, placing text and sequence numbers is very easy. Perfect for your manuals.

This is the best screenshot program I have seen! It even allows for uploading online, and custom automatic file naming like for example "Saturday, 9th of September 2023, 23;32.png". 10/10! Thank you for making it! ^^,

Excellent and highly customizable, far superior to Windows' "snipping tool". This one too can be made to run when PrtScn is pressed.

The best screenshot tool I've ever used.

10+ year user of LinuxMint, but never have I reviewed a piece of software. However, I was willing to spend the extra time getting signed up just to rank flameshot the maximum rating. Wow! What a useful tool. Thanks so much to the creators and developers of this tool!

My main dislike is that Flameshot makes the screen too dark before you select the region that you want to screenshot. This makes it very difficult for me to see what's on the screen and what to select. My second dislike is that Flameshot saves to the clipboard if you press Enter after you've finished selecting the region that you want to screenshot. It can save the screenshot to your files too if you click the floppy disk, but I wish that this was the action that pressing Enter would do instead. Aside from those two issues, it's a decent screenshot application.

Works ok but this version is too old (from 2019). There are at last 8 new releases after this one: v0.6.0

It's working fine BUT I don't understand how to save clipboards.

This has cool features such as a built-in graphics editor, so I probably would not need to fire up Gimp to make a minor change. But it seems to be missing one feature I need: To repeat the same rectangular region capture I just took before.

Tiny, feature rich, intuitive. The animated GIF on their website nicely presenting all its capabilities.

I am a former WIN user. In that OS I worked with a programm called greenshot. I am very happy to have found flameshot for my linux OS, as it is lightweight and user friendly and it has everything I need :-)

Easier and more versatile than others. The UI makes it easy and visible to access A LOT of flexible options and features. Saving to jpg is easier than with other applets. Sits in tray. Cons are not worth a minus star: It lacks screen recording but it does what it does well, and you need select an area to grab a window or single monitor which is no issue at all. Simple yet very powerful..

все работает на mint20.1 ! рекомендую свою функцию выполняет. PS: можно назначить как горячую клавишу PrintScreen - отвязываем дефолтную привязку, добавляем по кнопке команду "flameshot gui" и все ок

Brilliant! SO much more powerful AND better to handle than the standard screenshot-tool! And it DOES work with ulyana / Mint20.
