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

I think the concept is cool but i cant get past the UI. It's absolutely shocking.

Unfortunately, this won't replace what I do now. I post PNGs when I do screen captures, and always optimize them with OptiPNG or pngcrush before uploading. Optimizing PNGs saves about 5-50% of the file sizes, and can remove the gamma tags that cause matching problems.

Incidentally, OptiPNG and pngcrush are command-line tools. I access them currently by using OnMyCommand to make contextual menu entries for them. So now, I take my PNGs, right-click on them, and choose a menu entry to optimize. I probably could/should automate it further with Automator or Watch Folders or something.

A great app for people frequently posting images to forums and the like. I have to confess though, I still can't wrap my head around the odd UI.

A suggestion I sent into them was to include Facebook and Photobucket account integration in addition to flickr. Hopefully Plasq will consider that.

I'm absolutely in love with this app so far. Incredibly well integrated and thought out.
