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?

    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).

    What about a sync program

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

    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 (
    You can tell it to save it's screenshots in the (DropBox) directory of your choice
