Puush is a dead simple tool to take screenshots and share them instantly. It lets you capture the entire screen, the active window, specific area, or even upload a file using only hotkeys! The captured files will be automatically uploaded to its server and you’ll be given a short URL that you can easily share to your friends.
Create An Account
In order to use Puush, you need to create an account first. You can do that once the app has been installed on your computer.
Once you’ve created your account, you’re now ready to use Puush! The first thing you need to do is to go to Settings and change the hotkey combinations to your liking. If you’re already comfortable using the default hotkeys, you don’t need to change it.
To take screenshots, you just need to press the hotkey combinations you set, then automatically, the screenshot will be uploaded to Puush’s server. Once the upload is finished, a balloon from the notification area will popup notifying you that the upload is complete! The short URL is then automatically copied to your clipboard.
By default, Puush doesn’t save a copy of the screenshot to your hard drive, however, you can change this setting so you can also have a local copy of the image.
One of its killer features is the ability to upload any files not just your captured images. To do this, just click the hotkey combinations for upload file (default: CTRL+SHIFT+U) then choose the file you wish to upload. Once done, you’ll be given a short URL that you can use to share it with your friends. You can also use the hotkey combinations when you’re in Windows Explorer to quickly upload selected files.
You can easily track your recent upload history by right-clicking on the Puush’s icon located in the notification area.
Puush Online Account
You can also access your captured images or uploaded files online by logging in to your Puush account. From there you can delete captured images, move to Private folder, etc.
