I too would love to have this feature, as I use Greenshot as part of a quick workflow to capture screens, make small edits (crop / draw box highlighting issue) and not persisting the screenshot locally. As such I don't want to be prompted to save it, and ideally I don't want to have to close the application.

Supporting this type of workflow could be supported by two different options:

New Setting: Edit > Preferences > General > "Prompt to Save on Close?"
This would allow the user to simply CTRL-SHIFT-C, ALT-F4

New Keyboard Shortcut: "Copy to Clipboard and Close" CTRL-SHIFT-X
This would allow the user to simply CTRL-SHIFT-X

I'd really likt to have this issue, too. Using Greenshot as an effective "quick marking" tool.
Almost everything is there....

Workflow:
Press "Print" and select the area (OK)
Area is automatically copied to clipboard and the editor opens (OK - i can select two targets as default)
I just press the "ESC" key - and 1) the modified picture is copied to the clipboard 2) the editor closes

This would be a great help to make commented screenshots on the fly!

I've just created an account just to up-vote this feature. Would be great if editor could close automatically after "Copy image to Clipboard" has been selected

Would be very helpful for day-by-day usage...

Hello,

Autocopy after editing: very good idea (other programs do it).

Thx!
