Ever had the need to upload a screenshot of your PC quickly?  Sure the native Windows Snip Tool is good and SnagIt is even better.  But what if you just need to quickly take a shot and upload it without any editing or pasting into Paint first?

This is where Gyazo comes in.  Gyazo is a one trick pony but does the trick well.  All you have to do is pin the shortcut to your taskbar or have a desktop icon available, click the icon grab the part of the screen you wish to share and it’s immediately uploaded to the Gyazo server and displayed in your browser where you can instantly share with Twitter, Tumblr & Flickr.  It also automatically copies the image URL to your clipboard for even better efficiency!

Alternatively, you can hold shift whilst you drag and drop an image onto your desktop icon and it’ll upload too!

Currently there’s no editing tools available but hopefully a basic set will emerge in the near future.
