Skitch

Version: 1.0.7 || Release Date: 2011-08-16 || License: Freeware Developer: plasq | App Owner: atariboy

Share images, ideas and have fun with friends online.

Skitch allows you to take screenshots on your Mac, edit them and share them with others. It makes the sharing process seamless by making it a natural workflow to send the image (with edited arrows and other highlights helpful to your client) to them via email or automatic website uploads. It is especially popular with the designer community, as they show their clients rough drafts of their work in a nearly automated process. It makes it simple to work remotely with someone and pass on work revisions and get feedback quickly. Other uses include:

  • Snap a website
  • Capture a chat moment
  • Screenshot an application
  • iSight snap your bad hair day
  • Quickly sketch an idea
  • Tap into your iPhoto Library
    Re-open images from your Skitch History

This is one of the greatest apps! I LOVE IT! Nothing more to say... :-)

I love Skitch!!! It is so useful. After reading about it from Lifehacker.com, you will not be able to go one day without using it. Each and every day, I use it. Whether I need a simple screen shot or just need to put some simple text on a photo. Also, it lets you upload super fast.

Skitch is recommended.

At first I didn't really get it, but skitch has totally changed my life. If you work on any kind of web development, you need this tool!

p.s. give it a chance, you get used to the whacky UI.

Skitch has definitely broken the mold where it comes to Apple's UI guidelines, and yet I don't seem to mind. My greatest feature request is a default setting for the cursor so I can stop undoing accidental drawing on my images.

I upload a lot of screenprints to mySkitch so that they don't clutter up my Flickr photostream, especially since I've set no downloading for anyone on Flickr. Skitch's webspace comes in handy for those few images I do want the public to have access to the original sized image.

It's a handy resizer and image converter, too, and it is now my default Quick Add Drop Shadow application, superceding ImageWell. I can not say enough nice things about Skitch.

@adidas ... I don't think Skitch was ever meant to be a bulk uploader to Flickr. plasq should continue to keep things simple. Flickr's got an Organizr for tags and titles.

I love everything about Skitch. Yet another perfect app to make pc users feel envy.

I have only one feature request:

- Option to automatically add icon thumbnails for the pictures you drag to the Finder.

Anybody knows the price after Skitch gets out of Beta?
(Maybe the developer could give us that information...)

I was just debating the need for anything more than print screen and Photoshop on Windows. I got a Mac recently and my friend told me to give Skitch a try (and sign up for the beta) and I have say I'm converted--Skitch is awesome!

I LOVE SKITCH! I use it at work to capture and annotate UI defects in our applications. I use it at home to add images to my blog posts. I tell my friends and coworkers about Skitch constantly, and I can't wait for the general release. Hoping for full-page capture (with scrolling) one day!

I've been using Skitch since MacWorld 2007. It's an amazing app and I use it nearly every day. If you are active online it is THE best way to share photos, screen grabs, images you've discovered, etc. If you find something you want to share just drag it to Skitch, mark it up how you'd like, click upload and paste the result where you want it to appear.

I can't believe I used to post without using Skitch. I can get my point across in exactly the way I want to. I feel so much more active and so much more expressive.

nice program. It's a great idea. Especially the built in sharing function. I guess it will be a great help to explain stuff and share ideas.
However I agree to the previous post. The user interface is extremly akward. I don't like it. It feels more like a flash game than a proper application. I would love to see it with a real mac carbon interface.
Also when cropping the image you're automatically resizing the window. Somehow that takes up to much computing power and the frame doesn't move smooth when I crop.

anyway. Excellent concept and nice app.
