Whether you are a student taking a snapshot of an article for educational purposes, want to share an error message with the troubleshooting team or perhaps capture a funny message to post on social media, screenshots are routinely used nowadays.
picd is a tiny, lightweight utility that provides a quick way to capture your full screen or just an area of it. The tool is connected with the picd.in service and enables you to take and share images via this service.
Press PrtScn to get started
The setup is a quick and straightforward process that does not require any special attention on your part. The app does not have an interface per se, but rather you can access it from the System Tray. You can get started by pressing the PrintScreen button and the app prompts you to select an area to capture via the mouse. If you do not select any area, the app snapshots the full desktop. On a side note, to capture an area, you need to start selecting from the app's message area.
Unlike similar tools, the program does not come with advanced features and it would be nice if you could allow you to add a watermark at least, for instance.
Save the screenshot locally or share it directly
The program allows you to save the screenshots locally in a PNG. On the other hand, if you are using the picd.in website, then you can work with other file formats as well, namely BMP, JPG, WEBP and HENC. As far as the service goes, the developer claims that you receive unique links for your screenshots. To remove it, you need to either hit the Abuse button located under the image or contact their team at [email protected], which can be a drag for some.
In the eventuality that you are looking for something very simple to take captures of windows, areas of your screen or full desktop to share with others in a convenient way, then perhaps you can consider giving picd a try.
