Flameshot Screenshot Tool 0.8.0 Released with Counter Tool

Flameshot, a powerful yet easy-to-use screenshot tool. We have released version 0.8.0 with new editing tools, improvements and many fixes.

Flameshot 0.8.0 has added the popular circle counter tool requested. Added a button to open the sidebar on the left side of the screen. This was previously only accessible by pressing Space on the keyboard.

The Blur tool has been replaced by the Pixelate tool. If the Thickness is 0 or 1, the old blur behavior is retained. When the thickness increases by more than 1, the image is pixelated by thickness.

Other changes are as follows:

  • Allow the image to be copied to the clipboard with the Enter key
  • Add support for saving as JPG and BMP files.
  • Add line thickness to the side panel
  • Add an option to close after capture (currently buggy).
  • Added option to auto-copy URL after upload
  • Fixed capture after pressing ctrl + S while typing text area
  • Add more translations.
  • Add Snap and Flatpak packages
