How do I share what I created with CloudApp?

After capturing a screenshot, video, or GIF, we turn your file into a short link that you can easily share. You'll see this message when the link is ready to share.


That link is automatically added to your clipboard. You can change your settings to determine what type of file is automatically copied into your clipboard:

  • Copy shared link (condensed version)
  • Copy direct link (elongated version)
  • Copy content

You can share your link in many ways (or download them if you'd like), but we'll outline a few to help you get started.

1. Use a keyboard shortcut to paste the link.

By pasting the CloudApp link into any chat, email, Slack, Facebook or Skype conversation, the content will automatically be able to preview. To paste using your hotkeys:

  • Mac: Command + V 
  • Windows: Control + V

You can also paste your content by right clicking your cursor and selecting ‘paste’. 

2. Or you can share the content directly.

You can do this by right clicking on the three dots located next to your item and selecting ‘copy content’. You can go here for more information.
