Alternatively, you can use dropbox and imgur.com.

The benefit of dropbox is that it could upload files automatically.

Imgur has an API which you could use. Examples of that you can see here: https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/209592766-Tools-for-Imgur

Easiest way I know of to do this would be to use Google Drive's Backup and Sync program.

https://www.google.com/drive/download/

During the install and setup of it it asks which folders you wish to sync.  Just choose to include your screenshot folder

No idea if this works but I remember seeing it a while ago so figured I'd hunt it down and paste it here:

Thanks for the helpful suggestions.

1. Regarding a Google Drive command line utility, I found the app "gdrive" provides this function and can be downloaded from github (https://olivermarshall.net/how-to-upload-a-file-to-google-drive-from-the-command-line/).  I was able to successfully configure the SC tool with this app.  However, to be on the safe side I used a gmail/gdrive account that is not my primary one.

2. Regarding right-click functionality, I tried this with Right Click Enhancer Pro (https://rbsoft.org/downloads/right-click-enhancer/), or by adding my "Send to" folder without luck.  Part of the problem here is I don't see a "Google Drive" to send files to like that of Dropbox or One Drive.   The new google drive cloud doesn't work that way.[ Invalid Attachment ]

3. Mapping is possible (https://www.insynchq.com/blog/map-google-drive-any-folder/) but I think it keeps copies on both ends?  I was looking to just upload the file and delete on the PC.

4. Yes, Dropbox is straightforward, but my goal is to use Google Drive.

5. Backup and sync is also easy if I just connect with the Screenshot Captor folder and it saves all the many files I make, but my goal was to click on a file I want specially to upload to a GDrive folder.

6. The last suggestion is what I found too (#1)!

I was going to suggest Google Drive's Backup and Sync program, but saw that @hollowlife1987 had already done it:

And I had forgotten about gdrive, which seems to have been much improved and is definitely a nifty approach:

What I didn't realise until he stated it is that @jax200 had another requirement:
...I was looking to just upload the file and delete on the PC.

So @jax200, are you going to use send to gdrive and then delete the image from disk?
I'd not recommend it (I might be misunderstanding something here, but there seem to be insufficient belts and braces).
My training is that, ideally, one should have the primary copy of a file and one backup, at least.
