Skitch – simple screenshot sharing and more

Picture 5

There are many ways to share images online, but most of them require you to post images to a separate website and then send out links to the site. If you want to edit the image to point out an area of interest, or you’re a big screengrab user, you also have to save the images somewhere first, as well as buy some complicated software to enable you to make edits of screenshots. What the world needs is a way to quickly take, edit and share screengrabs and images without messy purchases and multiple installs.

Skitch is a Mac-only application that gives you a very fast way to achieve all this. Once installed, you simply click the Snap button and select the screen area you want to grab. It’s then ready for you to crop, resize and edit to your heart’s content. Once you’re done, you can of course save the image, easily drag the image from the interface to your email or other application, or use the built-in web upload support to send your image straight to your Flickr, .Mac or Skitch.com account. It’s free (in beta at the moment) for Mac OS 10.4.6 or later.

Your friends are global, you can send them links but what if the action is on your screen? … Point out a quick suggestion to a colleague or pass on that funny moment from an IM chat, post images to MySpace, eBay, forums or via email. Skitch is the Internet age’s Camera and it Rocks!

  • Another nifty one. Nice when Macs get shared love. And freebies.
    I use Grab, which can be great, but this looks even more useful.
    Loaded a treat.
    Shame they now claim the password I entered six seconds ago is invalid, so I can't use it until I unravel why.
    Probably me being an ITiot,
    But I really loathe registration systems.
