⚠️ Deprecation notice ⚠️

ImgurSniper was a project I initially created as my first "real" C# project while still in school. I had lots of fun developing it, but obviously made some messes in the codebase such as in-efficiency, bugs, and inconsistent styling conventions. I learned a lot from this project, and want to thank everyone of you who downloaded it, starred it and created issues in here. I'm now archiving this repository, as I have no interest in maintaining the codebase, and honestly a full rewrite with my knowledge now would be a way better decision anyways. It still works on my machine but if it doesn't work on yours then I'm afraid I can't help you. Try ShareX. Check out my other repositories for some other possibly interesting projects.

PS: ImgurSniper is also in the 2020 GitHub Archive Program, pretty cool to think there's some floppy disk out there containing buggy C# code.

Why choose ImgurSniper?

Compared to other Screenshot software, ImgurSniper is as fast as sharing Images can get. Also, ImgurSniper will upload directly to imgur, which gets a direct Image Link (Meaning the Link is Image only, so you can embed the Image, or share it with Software that can preview Image URLs, like Discord, ...)

How to use

Press Ctrl + Shift + X or PrintScreen (depending on your Preferences) to start ImgurSniper Snap Mode! Easily capture and share a moment by drawing a Rectangle with your Mouse to automatically upload it to Imgur! Optionally, press Space to switch Mode and paint on the Screen! You can now share the Link that has been copied to your Clipboard with everyone!

(To change the behavior of ImgurSniper, right-click the Icon in your Tray and click Settings)
