` pip install pyscreenshot requests ` Note: Thanks to the fine work of [Juan Pablo][juanpablo] you should be able to just pip install imgurscrot :)

## Use Put it somewhere in $PATH as an executable (chmod +x) file named “imgurscrot” and just do “imgurscrot” to screeenshot your full screen and automatically upload it.

## Licence [Licenced under the WTFPL][wtfpl]

## Notes I had meant to use the actual imgur library but it kept fucking up so I just used requests instead.
