This is a lightweight open source utility for creating screenshots on Windows, Linux and Mac. It provides an easy way to create and annotate screenshots.
Flameshot has all the usual features of a screenshot program along with good customization options and a set of useful keyboard shortcuts. Once you've made your selection, the editing tools appear on the desktop for instant use – one of its best features.
