Take a screenshot of your desktop and upload to ImageShack imgur easily

I wanted a simple tool to upload to Imageshack with minimum fuss and absolutely no config settings, couldn’t find any such so I built one myself.  Just extract all the files to a folder, run the executable, and if you want to upload something to  Imageshack, hit PrintScreen and double click the icon on the system tray, it’ll automatically upload to ImageShack imgur, and once upload is done, will give you a notification and copy the ImageShack imgur URL to the clipboard.

I’ve been using this for the past few weeks months now, and seems to work fine atleast on Win 7. Under Linux, the app runs fine using Mono + Winforms without any changes – although there’s a slight glitch – the generated URL doesn’t see to get copied to the clipboard. Let me know your feedback / rants.

(PS: Don’t judge my code, its horribly n00bish and nowhere close to being called “professional”)

( Based on Omkar’s ScreenUp and uses Bryce’s C# Wrapper for ImageShack XML API. Also, thanks to Omkar for the selection screenshot library. )

Update: Bryce’s imageshack library stopped working, due to a probable change in API by Imageshack. The tool now uploads the image to imgur. Functionality remains the same :)

  1. Well it isn’t top grade – this is the first thing I wrote as I was exploring 😉 I welcome tips on what can be done to improve it :)
    Thanks for checking it out :)

  2. Hey man,

    this is almost exactly what I was looking for!

    Couple of things, though:

    1) ImageShack changed something and it doesn’t work anymore;
    2) any way to add uploading images into IS account instead of anonymously? Helps to keep track of them + can delete.

    I’d love to see this app working and uploading into account. I used to use QuickShot but maintainer stopped supporting it years ago and IS finally broke it completely.

  3. @Ilya:
    Yes, Imageshack changed the way it is accepting the API requests. Since I rely on Bryce’s wrapper I cannot fix this :( There’s some discussion going on Bryce’s post ( ) on how to fix this.
    As for uploading to IS account, again the wrapper doesn’t have support for authenticated accounts, so the uploads go anonymous.

    I’ve updated the app to upload to imgur for the time being.

  4. hi
    thanks for this, i have been looking for an app like imageshack quickshot and quickload after they stopped working, but no luck!

    i think the dropbox link is still downloading ImageShack version as i get an error with an link, and the files are dated from february
