In this article, we have collected information about online screenshot tools that can be used for free. Some of them have paid subscriptions that significantly expand their capabilities, but our goal is to compare free packages.

This web application is intuitive and visually pleasing. Several free templates are available, and you can remove the brand's watermark.

The application allows you to easily position the image and add annotations to any part of the screen. Multiple images can be added, but they are positioned together. It has a wider collection of templates and can create a 3D effect.
However, the functionality is occasionally glitchy and unclear. You can, for example, set up your image size only to a square. Many features are cool on their own, but when combined, we believe they reduce usability while adding no value to the application. In addition to that, it’s not possible to remove the watermark.
