Made with KShare itself, of course :)

🎉 Features

  • 💻 open source
  • 🪶 lightweight
  • 🖧 cross-platform
  • 🔍 magnifying lense for image capture
  • customizable keyboard shortcuts
  • image annotation (rectangle, ellipse, freehand, line, arrow, text)
  • 📂 upload screenshots, files, clipboard or text
  • 🤏 color picker
  • 📤 multiple destinations implemented (imgur, gdrive, clipboard)
  • 🔧 custom uploader (works perfectly with php_filehost)
  • 🖌 themes (dark, breeze dark, breeze light, qdarkstyle)


Please note that KShare is not compatiable with Wayland due to some permission issues. Please use X.Org instead.


  • Qt 5 Widgets
  • Qt 5 GUI
  • Qt 5 Network
  • Qt 5 Multimedia
  • Qt 5 X11Extras | Winextras
  • QHotkey
  • libavformat
  • libavcodec
  • libavutil
  • libswscale

Additionally, on Linux, you require:

  • XCB
  • XCB xfixes
  • XCB cursor
  • Notifications Daemon with org.freedesktop.notifications DBus support (like dunst)

Despite the name implying so, this project does not depend on the KDE API at all.


Download the development versions for Arch Linux, Ubuntu/Debian and Windows here. The stable/master branch is available here.

For other UNIX-like platforms, and MSYS2 (for Windows):

You have to obtain the dependencies though.

git clone --recursive
cd KShare
qmake # Might be qmake-qt5 on your system

On systems with FFMpeg pre-3.1 you need to apply OlderSystemFix.patch to src/recording/encoders/encoder.cpp. On systems with Qt pre-5.7 you need to install the Qt version from their website. You can attempt to curl | bash
