Snipping Tool++ is an application meant to replace the windows snipping tool. With this application
you can quickly take a snippet screenshot or a full screenshot and upload it to imgur.com and have
a link ready to be pasted within a matter of seconds. You can also save screenshots/snippets locally
to your computer. What is more, you can upload any text copied to your clipboard directly to pastebin.

This is a very useful program for anyone who takes a lot of screenshots and sends them to friends
over chats or posts them onto forums.

The app itself sits in your task tray out of the way and is accessible through hotkeys or by
right clicking the icon itself.

These pictures were taken in seconds with this tool!







Multi-Snippet Capture (draw boxes around everything you want combined together)

The combined image



Hotkeys
  • Upload Snippet: Ctrl+Shift+1
  • Upload Screen: Ctrl+Shift+2
  • Save Snippet: Ctrl+Shift+3
  • Save Screen: Ctrl+Shift+4
  • Exit Overlay: Right Click (This can also be done while dragging a bounding box if you wish to cancel)
  • Upload Clipboard: Alt+Shift+1

Download (My Website)


Feedback/Suggestions are much appreciated.

UPDATE

If you downloaded Build: 2.8a then please re-download. 2.8a has a bug and is missing the options menu. All this is fixed in the current 2.8 version.

SMF is really bad as making sense. A lot of permissions are not set for membergroups 0 and 4-9, which are basically all regular members.

I had to call upon the database and do magic.

Mediafire page says the file is private :/

Also, by the looks of it, this reminds me of Gyazo, which I use all the time! Smiley

yea sorry about that, i was in the middle of updating it.

Check the link now Smiley

I didnt think anything like it existed. I did a bunch of googling and could not find any other app like it. The
closest thing I knew of was "Hyperdesktop" which was another imgur tool except it had uploading issues
and seems to have been discontinued. Hence, I made this. Smiley

[Build 2.9] UPDATE
Fixed a bug with saving snippets locally where it would save the entire screenshot instead.
Fixed a bug with the escape key not resetting the bounding box coordinates.

Wow this is actually quite amazing! However, I don't like having it running in the background. The way Gyazo works, it opens up the reticle for you to select the part of the screen you want to cut when you run it. Then it closes.

BTW, this was made using pure Java or using natives? I don't see how this is possible using plain old AWT :S

Its completely java except for the hot keys. I use JIntellitype which is a windows key hook.

Other than that it uses the imgur api key to access uploading. google imgur api for more info.

and what do you mean not like having it run in the background? What would you suggest?

How in the world can you use AWT to darken the whole screen and draw red rectangle over where you want to select? O_o

And I was suggesting the way Gyazo did it, which is only run to select the image, upload the image, then end the process.

Ah.  I see, i dont think I will do that with this program because when I built it I originally built it for a few of my
programming friends and myself. We all take a ton of snippets of things and are messaging them back and forth.

Speed was the concept, I wanted to deliver the fastest way to quickly grab, upload, and share. So by having
it run in the background you do not need to search for it and start it up. All you have to do is
Press the hotkey > drag > done

3 simple steps, completely minimizing clicks.


Now, how I made the overlay you ask, was quite simple. Ill give you the steps my program does.

1) Takes a screenshot
2) puts the screenshot on a panel that stretches across all screens
3) then draws a "filled rectangle" with an alpha level of 100 to give it transparency on top of the screenshot

That's all it does, quite simple really.


Here, this is the first "concept" i came up with before I decided to completely minimize clicks. This was
made the same day I came up with the idea to make the program.

Ohhh! I thought you drew over the actual screen! That's quite clever, using an undecorated and fully stretched panel.

And I was only comparing it with how Gyazo works. The way yours works is fine.

EDIT: Yup, seems like a bug. ESC executes "Upload Snippet", while pressing ESC doesn't escape the bounding box dragger thingy Tongue

OH WOW!! i didnt even realize escape brings up the tool. Escape is supposed to exit the overlay. I will fix that issue immediately.

I cant believe I never noticed that. Thanks! lol Smiley

Ok fixed that for you. Should be able to re-download it now.

Basically each hotkey has an identifier. and when I put the "Escape" hotkey, I accidentally gave it the
same identifier as opening the overlay. so it was doing both ._.

Awesome, that means a lot.

If you have any other suggestion let me know. If I find them viable I will
work on implementing them as soon as I find time. I have a final on friday
and have to do some studying and then after that I wont be online for
about a month lol.
