Overall Satisfaction with Droplr

Droplr was used to quickly store and share screenshots of critical data in Slack. Beforehand, we had to just use the standard screenshot software on our computers, which would just take up more space. Droplr allowed for easy cloud storage for an affordable price without taking up any of our valuable bandwidth.

Pros

  • Creates links for screenshots instantly.
  • Set up is incredibly easy.
  • Allows you to create custom shortcuts so you can take screenshots that are easiest for your workflow.

Cons

  • Cost. There are other tools that provide the exact same functionality for free. It makes it hard to compete with.
  • GIF making. I could never crack the ability to make a GIF successfully.
  • GIF customization. Frame rate was absolutely terrible, which would make GIFs that I did make very stuttery. The fact I couldn't customize it makes it a big problem.
  • Internal screenshots have literally never been easier and space is never taken up.
  • It cost our organization a couple bucks, but you get what you pay for.
  • We couldn't make GIFs or videos very well. It would have helped out our clients to make GIFs and videos, as we had some pretty...let's say "challenged" clients.
Lightshot Screenshot provides the same screenshot functionality as Droplr, but with no cost. Lightshot Screenshot also allows you to edit a photo and can upload your photo either to the cloud or just paste it in an email/Slack/anything else to your client. There are very little go-betweens and a lot more flexibility.

Droplr was chosen by my company, not me. If I had chosen a screenshot software, in retrospect, I would have chosen Lightshot Screenshot. Droplr was fine. Lightshot Screenshot is killer, though.
Droplr is most appropriate when taking quick screenshots and sharing them internally. It's outrageously easy to take a Droplr link, paste it in Slack, and have the screenshot unfurl.

Droplr is least suited to sharing assets between you and a client. If you're sharing a screenshot, you have to paste the link, then copy the image that's featured within the link to share the asset. You can't guarantee that a client would actually click on a deliverable link, so it takes up time and storage space.
