Hi,

We know of some issus with RC2, most of them should be fixed in RC5. Please have a look at this!

problem still occurs.
Greenshot 1.0.6 Build 2228
After one day of usage > 400Mib

It seems, that the taken picture stays in memory when you select "copy to clipboard" entry from popup menue.

found a possible workaround for that problem. after some time take a screenshot and edit it in the image editor. there hit the round red button for delete. it seems that action will throw away the internal picture cache and the memory immediatly drop under 30Mib.

hope that will help

Are you still having these problems? We have had some more memory-related improvements in the meantime...

Thanks and best regards,
Jens
