CloudShot is an awesome tool for anyone who wants to upload screenshots directly to cloud storage. Its latest version is 5.7 and now, thanks to improved OAuth implementation, it allows you to directly upload your screenshots to your OneDrive, Google Drive, DropBox, Imgur or even to your own FTP servers.

The new auto-update system is based on the open-source Squirrel framework. This is also used by other well-known projects such as Visual Studio Code or Slack. We should mention that this is not supported in the mobile build, which means that you will need to manually install the full application on your computer in order to make sure that it works.

As soon as you install the new version of CloudShot, you will notice that the Settings window has been reorganized. Once you right-click on the CloudShot system tray icon, you will be able to select “Settings”. After that, select the cloud storage where you want to upload your screenshots (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Imgur, etc.). The CloudShot version 5.7 also comes with “user analytics”, which allows you to send anonymous reports to the developers about the usage or crashes of the application.

According to its official release information, the analytics are 100% safe and anonymous and will help the developers understand what the user needs. However, you can also disable this feature by heading to the application’s Settings->General.

The other functions of the application are intact, which means that it is taking full or partial screen capture (or optionally records the screen to GIFs) and after that it allows you to edit it. Once you’re done editing it, the image is uploaded to the cloud storage. Allowing you to view it from any other computer/mobile device that has access to an internet connection.

CloudShot is free and it can be installed on any computer that runs on Windows Vista or later.
