    1-click/keystroke method of capturing screenshot for hosting online?
    I wanted to find out what some of you would consider to be the easiest and fastest method (closest to one click/keystroke) of capturing a screenshot and then immediately uploading it to some free online image hosting service (such as imageshack.us) - and potentially capturing the hosted image URL in the process?

    Does such a method to exist? If not, does anyone one to suggest an alternative method - that they would consider nearly as good as the one I've just mentioned?

    I've been using the imageshack.us widget for Mac OS X, but I still think the process of: capturing a screenshot manually, finding it on my desktop and clicking and dragging it to the dashboard widget for uploading, then removing the -n prefix from the captured URL on my clipboard (that I believe imageshack places in front of files uploaded to free accounts)... well, I think you get the point - it's just far too tedious and I have to believe that there is a quicker more efficient way of doing this?

    Any suggestions?

    Skitch is pretty awesome. And for the time being, it's free.

    I use a Flickr account and 1001. Drag and drop is where it's at.

    I figured out a 1-click method of doing this using automator...you need to have the imageshack uploader app installed which adds the necessary automator action...and I setup a hotkey trigger using Quicksilver....
