    I am tired of using 2 or 3 different programs to edit a screenshot, so I am in need of a portable tool that can blur areas of a screenshot, has different pointers/arrows, can highlight areas, can switch to different windows to capture and is very light on resources. I'm sure I would like more features but I can't think of anymore off the top of my head.

    I've been using Faststone FSCapture for years .
    It should fit all the requirements you describe and then some .

    +1. I use a free portable version 5.3 which can still be found, though I would happily fork out for the lifetime license.
    Haven't tried it, but also saw a recommendation for free CloudShot: http://cloudshot.com/ which has a portable version also.

    hi
    i like ShareX , it's open source portable and you can upload in many image hosts and record video with great quality without eating cpu

    or Snipaste free & portable
    cheers

    I would have said exactly the same , until I read this thread .

    ... now that looks like a real winner .

    I'd like to read some feedback from any users here before I test it ; it's lazy , I know :)

    Nothing beats ShareX imo. They need to clean up with UI/UX to be less daunting to newcomers but it has every editing tool & deployment option one could hope for. Sometimes I just want to upload the image to imgur. Sometimes my dropbox or onedrive, sometimes pushbullet to my phone. The best.

    I tried other programs, but Faststone FSCapture it's the better.
