Puush is great for everyone who needs to take a screenshot on the fly. It's quick, it's out of the way, and it's free. You can completely ignore it until you need to take a picture, then you just hit a button and it captures the picture. You can take a full screenshot, capture your current window only, or select a certain area to capture.

Puush is extremely useful for any media project done over the internet. I use it to share screenshots and chunks of code from my programming projects.
