In 99.999% of cases I apply 'Drop shadow' to my screenshot for better readability and then send it.
It would be really great if Greenshot could automate it and save me 5 mouse clicks
Question: I'd love to see someone describe a proper use case. Like how would one configure this, does it depend on the target? What when the user doesn't want the effect? What when one wants to change the effect setting? Etc...
Answer: My use case is really trivial, I just capture region and paste result into mail or messenger window.
Actually Greenshot already has similar function called "Quick preferences"(tray icon's context menu).
It even includes 'Effects' sub-menu, which sounds logical for this request, but we can review 'Capture mousepointer' option's use case.
What when the user doesn't want the effect(mousepointer)? Then...he just unchecks this item in context menu, that's all
