i don't know what FastStone is, but i'm using Skitch. It has: - simple editing tools for screenshot; - upload to or your ftp server; - simple saving to different formats;

I personally use Jing. It's got video recording functionality as well. If you pay for the pro version, you can save in non-flash formats or even upload to YouTube. Jing also lets you use your webcam, should you be using a machine that has one.

Lightweight, fast, efficient, does 100% of what a simple screenshot program does. I use FastStone Capture on Windows extensively, and so far, I find that InstantShot! replicates FastStone Capture the best, without adding all the bells-and-whistles that I hardly, if I ever, uses.
