When you want to show a friend of yours the way your desktop looks like, you typically need to take several steps: take the snapshot, open your email client or your instant messaging app, then send the file.
Rapid Screenshot can help you simplify the entire process by uploading the screenshot online and copying the URL to your clipboard, so you simply need to paste it within your chat window and you are done.
Portable desktop capture
The application does not require you to install it onto your PC, as it stores all its files in its own folder, so you can copy it onto a removable flash drive and run it whenever the need arises.
The GUI (graphic user interface) is kept as simple as possible, and you only need to press the dedicated hotkey and start capturing your screen - if you are not pleased with the default hotkey, you can change it to another one with ease.
It needs to be mentioned that you need to press the hotkey twice if you want to obtain a full-screen snapshot, otherwise you can just press it once then select the desktop area the interests you.
Edit and share screenshots
After you have taken a snapshot, you can either export it as a graphic file and save it to your hard disk, or upload it online, then share its URL to other users.
You can also apply some changes to your screenshot, as you can make freehand drawings or straight lines, using the color you specify. Moreover, you can add a text message with as much as a mouse click.
To wrap it up, Rapid Screenshot can be of great use to all those looking for a quick way to take snapshots then share them with friends. However, if you want to use certain third-party hosting services or gain access to more varied editing options, you might need to look for another utility.
