Lookit is a TinyGrab inspired application for taking desktop screenshots and having them automatically upload to an FTP or SFTP server of your choice.

URLs are automatically copied to the system clipboard allowing users to quickly paste the link in an email, blog post, on Twitter, or any instant messaging application.

Screenshot options sit in the LookIt indicator applet menu and the FTP server can be configured from the preferences menu.


Future plans include adding Ubuntu One and imgur as upload locations.

PPA Installation

LookIt is installable from the official Lookit Lucid-only PPA.
