    Pros: 

    Simple and works well

    Cons: 

    Limited to strict format

    It would be nice to see more customisation such as a color palette over set options. Other things that come to mind are annotations and generate code snippets for an easy copy and paste.

    Although I don't see any problem personally with a simple app, doing a simple task well. I'll use it future in my future blog posts!

    Congrats on your first app on producthunt. 👍

    Pros: 

    None, awful!

    Cons: 

    Uploading manually like in the 90's

    You have to 'copy' all functionality of

    https://app.prntscr.com/

    1. NATIVE Application for MAC or Windows

    2. click on Printscrn button and auto upload.

    3. Edit on screenshot mode, TEXT, FONT, Squares, ARROWS, etc

    4. Share with small links.

    5. Share with media (this is the unique task you seems to want to acomplish)

    6. SUPPORT VIDEO recording.

    7. Private and shared storage.

    9. VOICE recording for screenshots or video.

    10. GROUP set of screenshots or videos.

    Try app.prntscr.com (I dont work there, however as company we use this as basic tool)

Hello Product Hunt👋 Doing my very first product launch today.😱 I regularly want to share what I've worked on with others on Twitter or Slack/Telegram. However, sharing a simple screenshot always was a bit too bland for my taste... I wanted to make it look better. Give it a background, put it in a fake window with some shadows etc. You can do this in Photoshop or Sketch with some templates but that takes a lot of time if you just quickly want to share something with friends or coworkers. That's why I build Screely. With Screely you can instantly generate a beautiful image from a simple screenshot without needing to dive into Photoshop or Sketch first. Upload an image, choose your background color and hit that download button so you can share it with others. I have many more features I want to add like gradient backgrounds, ability to generate an image without the fake window, adjusting the padding and size and much more customization options. But I first wanted to ship the MVP and get some feedback from others and hear their opinions. PS. I only started to learn programming pretty recently so if you find a bug or something weird. Let me know and I'll try to fix it as fast as possible.

@jurn_w Simple yet so beautiful

A Screely Chrome extension that allows me to take the screenshot of the current tab and automatically opens Screely in a new tab would be super dope.
JurnMaker@jurn_w · Making stuff online, working on Screely
@travis_johnson1 That would be a cool feature! adding it to the list of potential ideas for the future :) EDIT: Got so many requests for a Chrome extension that I've decided to build one! stay tuned :)

@travis_johnson1 @jurn_w I agree, this is what this product needs to be really useful!
JurnMaker@jurn_w · Making stuff online, working on Screely
@travis_johnson1 @pbriod It has been requested so often today that I'm going to build one :D
This can be the product that saves Dribbble.

A really cool feature of this would be the ability to make them diagonal like they do on Behance images. Oh and and eyedropper tool to pick the colour of a part of the screenshot. Really cool though. I am always sharing screenshots in emails as I do the "how to" guides for new products and features in our company, and this will be a great addition. I like the way when you choose white, it adds a shadow around the image.
JurnMaker@jurn_w · Making stuff online, working on Screely
@productpearson Thanks for your feedback, really appreciate it! You're actually not the first person to suggest an eyedropper tool to pick a colour from the screenshot so I'm definitely putting this on the product roadmap. Do you mean something like this for a diagonal background? https://www.behance.net/gallery/...
Ash Pearson@productpearson · Product Manager
@jurn_w I'm struggling to find an example now, as Behance seems to have changed how they do things, which is understandable. Basically it was a flat screenshot, but diagonal so that you could see more of the screenshot in portrait, so like, say I want to share a screenshot of a webpage, to see anything under the fold, it would ideally be diagonal so you can see more of the image. This is the closest example I could find: Sorry if that's not a very good example, haha.
JurnMaker@jurn_w · Making stuff online, working on Screely
@productpearson ah, now I understand! Difficult to really look at the design of the page this way because you can't read most of it but does give a good feel for the lay-out of a full page. Will keep this in mind, thanks for your input!
Ash Pearson@productpearson · Product Manager
@jurn_w Yeh sorry it's not the best example. There have been times where I've tried to show in a landscape 1920x1080 image how a website looks, but half the page is missing and I have to send two screenshots or merge them together as a PDF.
Chris Messina@chrismessina · Product designer & entrepreneur
@jurn_w nice work! Skitch used to do this when snapping windows, but no more. It'd be cool if you made a macOS/native Electron version of this so that the screenshot could be generated locally without having to do a server roundtrip.
JurnMaker@jurn_w · Making stuff online, working on Screely
@chrismessina Thanks Chris! I've had quite a few requests for a native app/browser extension/CL app/API. It looks like the core issue is easier integration into one's workflow so I am definitely going to focus on development in this area. Wether that will be a native app or one of the other solutions, I am not sure yet.
