Skitch for Mac
Skitch is a lightweight and easy to use OS X image capturing and annotation application that was designed to make it as straightforward as possible to quickly snap screenshots and add various notes and graphical objects in order to communicate ideas more naturally.
Moreover, while using Skitch on your Mac, you will be able to do away with complicated interfaces and cumbersome controls, and enjoy a minimalist and intuitive user interface that manages to help you annotate and grab screenshots quicker then ever before.
Available for multiple platforms
The Skitch app is also cross-platform, with ports available for every major desktop and mobile platform out there, from Mac OS X and iOS to Android and Windows. This means that, whatever the device you are using, you can benefit from Skitch’s simplicity and user-friendliness to share bits and pieces of information with your colleagues and friends, neatly illustrated using screenshots.
Import or capture images and documents
To use it for annotating an image you must first import it within Skitch or capture it via the Screen Snap drop-down menu, which will allow you to swiftly snap portions of your Mac’s screen, the entire work area via the full-screen capturing option or, if you need to grab a snapshot of a real life object or person, use your Mac’s iSight camera to quickly snap a photo.
Once you have an image to work with, you can start marking up and jot down your notes using Skitch’s left sidebar that provides you with instant and easy access to all of the annotation tools.
Thereby, adding notes and various shapes to your image or document with Skitch, enables you to focus the attention of the person that will see it on to the most important areas, thus allowing you to get feedback on your work a lot quicker.
Automatic saving and syncing
In addition, during your Skitch annotation sessions, the project you work on will be automatically uploaded to your Evernote account and, while you edit the document, it will also be instantly synced thus effectively eliminating the need to manually save it. If you consider your work finished and close the project, you can also return to it later from Skitch’s home screen to continue editing it right from where you left off.
Share and deliver your work with ease
As an added bonus, every image or document that you mark up using Skitch can be speedily shared with your co-workers or friends using the app’s Share feature. This way, you can send the project via an e-mail message, using a public Evernote URL or via social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
