  • (2022-12-08) Md. Rakib Uddin Rana: Sometimes missing to take screenshot and it's really painful for us. please solve this issue as soon as possible. thanks
  • (2022-12-06) Сергей Исаев: раньше работало. Сейчас при нажатии опубликовать на сайт - виснет и не публикует. А очень хочется
  • (2022-12-01) Jazmine Anderson: Love this tool overall - simple and exactly what I needed. Except.. half the time it saves the screenshot as a blank black screen. Extremely inconvenient, and for that reason I'm removing and trying a different extension.
  • (2022-11-29) MEHRAB HOSSAIN: Not working properly
  • (2022-11-28) Henry McElrath: Stopped working - only intermittently successfully takes a screenshot. About half the time, the image it captures is just a white screen.
  • (2022-11-28) Igors Vills: Класное разширение - всё работает, функционал хороший, всё что нужно для работы - выделение области - стрелочки и т.д. Спасибо.
  • (2022-11-25) Ege Han: it doesn't work after a while please fix it Asap.
  • (2022-11-22) Adriano: круть))))
  • (2022-11-21) Lambros Stravelakis (Career Coach): I have been using it for a long time, very happy with it!!! The only thing is that i wish it would save in jpeg, or another more condense form.
  • (2022-11-17) qa qp: Классно заебца))))
  • (2022-11-17) Vyacheslav Nikolov: PLEASE FIX IT !!!
  • (2022-11-12) Konstantin R.: В принципе - хорошее расширение, только вот - нифига не могу понять - почему у меня с какого-то момента - при активации расширения и попытки выделить область для скриншота - экран обрезается с нижней и правой стороны, причём - довольно сильно..... И воооообще - непонятно, как это можно исправить или повлиять на это хоть...Я на всё готов, мне поковыряться - не сложно, если есть смысл - но не знаю, в каком направлении вообще искать решение проблемы. Переустановка расширения - не помогла к слову.
  • (2022-11-11) Lukas Lauer-Whippo: At the moment, 2 stars because it only works sometimes - usually not though since the past week or two. Please fix.
  • (2022-11-09) Pablo Ruzic: Stopped working,
  • (2022-11-07) Praveen Rathour: for last several days it is not working. please fix asap.
  • (2022-11-06) Mark Cruz: Did not work on kiwi browser.
  • (2022-11-03) Peik Gabriel (Peik): Stopped working, blank images with markings on it.
  • (2022-11-02) Deitro: No more working - saves blank images with your markings on it
  • (2022-11-01) Sergio Rodz: So far, and strangely enough, it only works taking screenshots on YouTube. As soon as they fix this bug, I'd gladly take my low rating. It's been a good tool for me for a long time.
  • (2022-10-27) Sean McGuire: This would be a 5-star review if the extension was still working. I am having the same issues with faulty captures that some other reviewers are having. What's the fix? I loved using Lightshot previously to highlight exactly what I wanted to highlight in a page quickly and seamlessly.
  • (2022-10-22) 이훈: 최고였는데 언제부터인가 캡쳐를 해도 빈페이지가 됨요. 다시 하면 되고 저만 그런가요?
  • (2022-10-21) Evgeniy Ivanov: В последнюю неделю криво работает. Делаешь скриншот, рисуешь стрелки потом вставляешь в чат телеги или скайпа а на картинке пустой фон и видны только стрелки.
  • (2022-10-19) Nick Tursi: This used to be my favorite, one-and-only screenshot tool. I loved it. Now it's broken and unusable and I hate it. issues: - this doesn't actually take a screenshot anymore. it's broken. - when you paste a screenshot from your clipboard, it just pastes a blank white image with your markings on it (the instant image editing was the best part) - tried downloading & uploading (instead of copy/paste/clipboard method) and it did the same thing. I see lots of other people here experiencing this issue as well: - "Since a while now the extension do not copy the image to the clipboard or do not save it correctly, its either empty or only what you draw on top of it shows." - "Was working great and now screenshots don't save properly. It usually save as white or not at all..." Please fix this! I don't want to have to use a different extension, but i've needed to look at alternatives. **could be something with a new update with Chrome. I don't know why people says this gives them malware. I have been using it for years with literally no issue regarding malware or injecting ads. Those sound like isolated issues.
  • (2022-10-19) Mariusz Kulawiak: Nie działa.
  • (2022-10-04) Danil Rogozhkin: Worked great for me until domains prntscr.com & prnt.sc were blocked by Russian ROSKOMNADZOR rkn.gov.ru for dome reason. Can you find a way around this limitation and implement it at last into chrome extension or may be also into apps. I believe some random (using wildcard dns) \ dynamically created domains might be used or something like this. I can also understand if you won't do it in todays circumstances cause sometimes you just cant take into account all these stupid restrictions
  • (2022-09-28) Jason Peck: Was working great and now screenshots don't save properly. It usually save as white or not at all...
  • (2022-09-25) Vishal Mavadia: works well and fulfils my companies needs
  • (2022-09-24) S* *S: Използвам го от години, но днес 24.09.2022, отказа да работи! ;(
  • (2022-09-14) Jack Hirsch: I really like it. Makes "screen shoting" on a chrome book easy. The copy feature without having to save the pic first is amazing. Love that i can just paste it directly into whatsapp or anywhere. Good job.
  • (2022-09-13) Alejandro M Gil Elias: Since a while now the extension do not copy the image to the clipboard or do not save it correctly, its either empty or only what you draw on top of it shows.
  • (2022-09-12) Darvin Lamvin: Its garbage, you cant scroll with it so you wont be able to capture what you want in its entirety. 90% Useless
  • (2022-09-12) Nazmul Hossain: For screenshot only! this is the best extension.
  • (2022-08-26) Изотов Life: Приложение сильно выручает в работе. С его помощью делаю статьи на канале https://zen.yandex.ru/actprint Как видите все статьи имеют скриншоты из видео. Только есть одна недоработка. Мне например нужны скриншоты одинакового размера всегда и каждый раз приходится вымерять нужный 700*400 пикселей. Хочу обратиться к разработчикам и попросить добавить функцию фиксации размера скриншота. Чтобы она была не по умолчанию, а по желанию... Хочешь делай как сейчас, каждый раз выставляя размер, а хочешь зафиксируй размер и делай скрины всегда одного формата.
  • (2022-08-25) Woofua De Gavqe: Все прекрасно работает. Москва.
  • (2022-08-17) Jayme Deans: used to work great, now it just doesnt take up the whole tab... once i click the extension it only shows the top 2/3, the rest becomes white.
  • (2022-08-16) OnXel XCIX: Отвратительно работает для россиян: доступ к облаку возможен только через ВПН + не ищет изображения через Google. Также требует чтение истории просмотров и управление скачанными файлами, возможно собирает ваши данные. Можно использовать чисто для CTRL C + CTRL V и не более того.
  • (2022-08-15) Fernando Cabral: É uma pena o Microsoft Edge não deixar instalar esta extensão e nem sequer ter uma extensão com a mesma utilidade.
  • (2022-08-13) Надежда Ракитина: https://gyazo.com/f9d8ac7eb473ce5884f67d8efef6e2ee Расширение не работает Зачем эти отзывы, если гугл их не читает?
  • (2022-08-10) Анастасия Кузьменко: Почему не работает загрузка на сервер? И просмотреть ссылку на скришот тоже невозможно.
  • (2022-07-20) William Finley: Works nice. Crops the web page really well. I have to uninstall because the label is just "screenshot" instead of the web page or a date requiring me to rename each screenshot I take.
  • (2022-07-17) Mohammed Nasser: ممتاز
  • (2022-07-15) Irina Veselkova: Друзья, почините загрузку на сервер, очень не хватает!
  • (2022-07-14) Yulya Kaa: перестал работать. В чем проблема?
  • (2022-07-13) Elliot _: it used to work amazingly, but now it randomly won't copy things i've screenshotted, only leaving an empty image
  • (2022-07-12) Will Hourihan: This plugin contains malware and hijacks your browser. Why it is still available here is beyond me.
  • (2022-06-29) Andrey Dmitriev: Непонятно как скопировать ссылку на сервер загруженное изображение. Или как посмотреть его потом на сервере
  • (2022-06-29) Artha Mark: не работает часто, не сохраняет скрины..
  • (2022-06-19) Roman Kotsiubynskyi: Russian spy soft from mail.ru developer
  • (2022-06-12) Richard Shepherd: Hijacks Google search results and injects ad / referal links. After a long drawn out process of elimination of disabling extensions one by one and testing, this turned out to be the culrpit. Every now and again it injects adverts / new tabs into google results.
  • (2022-06-08) Василий Мичиков: Не очень, скрин делает и не сохраняет, требует уставить свою программу для снятия скрина, а мне она зачем? скрин без программы не сохраняет. то есть вынуждают меня еще программу на компьютер установить. Во общем если вы дополнительно установите программу на пк тогда можно скрины сохранять. само расширения без программы абсолютно бесполезно.

    When I use the lightshot extension the screenshot downloaded is a ms dos file, not png or jpeg. Also, a good idea would be to give users option to save file as jpg or png, not automatically make it pgn.

    Активно пользуюсь Вашим расширением при создании статей на канале https://zen.yandex.ru/actprint. Как видите изображение режу всегда разные и из-за этого выходит не очень красиво (появляется рамка разных размеров) вокруг изображения. Было бы неплохо сделать в Вашем расширении возможность изначальной фиксации размера изображения при активном использовании расширения, как в моем случае. Допустим когда я сделал первую рамку скрина и как сейчас происходит в это время отображаются размеры рамки, после того как я остановил выбор скрина, появлялось окно с размерами и кнопкой зафиксировать размер. В дальнейшем рамки выводятся только такого размера. Если нужно сбросить фиксацию рядом с кнопкой зафиксировать размер будет кнопка "Сбросить"
