I often need to take screenshots and annotate them with arrows. I’ve tried several screenshot programs over the years such as the default print screen that comes on macOS and Windows. They work but as soon as you need to draw an arrow, copy to clipboard or resize, they can be a pain to deal with.
The best screenshot tool I have found that works on both macOS and Windows, is Lightshot. Lightshot allows you to turn the print screen button on your keyboard into a shortcut to take screenshots. You are able to quickly choose the size of the screenshot and then write text and draw arrows on the image. Finally, you can save the image or just copy it to your clipboard for quick sharing of the image. Overall it has been the best tool I have found for screenshots. Give Lightshot a try today and let me know what you think. Also, share what programs you use for screenshots in the comments.
