Fastest Way to get a screen shot to the cloud?

What is the best/fastest way to get a screen shot to the cloud?

I currently use picasa.  Load Picasa-PrintScrn-Grab Screen Shot-Upload.

Is there a better way?  Like a plug in for dropbox.  So everytime I hit print screen it is in my dropbox?

What about a sync program

I found this, but I don't use dropbox, so can't comment on how well it works

Take a look at SnagIT. You can get a screen shot with the PrtScr button very easily. From there, there a bunch of Output options and you can add some of your own. Direct to email is an option as well. SnagIT has a trial period, so take a look and see if it fits your need.  Overall, SnagIT is the best screen capture program going (in my opinion).

This looks great, installed easy and seems to work.
Great solution, I will try it.  
Still need to load picasa.
Next step is running picasa as a service so anytime I hit printscreen it arrive in my drop box.

Does Window 7 store the printscreen somewhere?  So I can snyc that folder to my dropbox?

I think printscreen is just stored in RAM (clipboard process)

Here is a free program to auto-save.  A search showed other free ones also.

Why not using a great freeware screenshot taker like eg. ScreenShotCaptor (http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Mouser/screenshotcaptor/)
You can tell it to save it's screenshots in the (DropBox) directory of your choice
