Opening paint.net from Greenshot (screen capture)?

Recommended Posts

Nevermind!  I figured out a way. I created a shortcut called "paint.net.lnk", then created a batch file to run it:


START "" "C:\Users\clone\paint.net.lnk" "%1%"

Then I used the external command feature to run the batch file.  🙂

It's best to use the "paintdotnet protocol" so you don't have to hardcode an EXE path. This is also required if you want things to work with the Store release.

Paint.net & Greenshot are my two favourite tools I use almost daily. I had the same issue, then I realised I didn't install the correct plug-in during install of Greenshot.


You can send the captured image directly to Paint.net from Greenshot. If it doesn't appear as a destination you need to reinstall it with the "Open with external command plug-in", then it should be automatically configured if Paint.net is already installed.



After screen shot this will appear.



To configure the destination manually, check out this link https://getgreenshot.org/2013/01/28/how-to-use-the-external-command-plugin-to-send-screenshots-to-other-applications/


I hope this helps.
