"Nice simple program, but WTF - takes up ~20MB RAM to start-up??"

It's a nice, simple program, but defies the suggestion from it's name as being "light". Task manager shows that it's taking just shy of 20,000kB of RAM just to start-up!! And taking screenshots adds to the memory bloat, 36,576kB after ONE full screenshot. Please trim the memory consumption down in future versions. KISS. For now uninstalling and returning to PicPick.

Pros
  • Simple (that's great).
Cons
  • RAM hog extraordinaire.
