See something that sparks an idea? Use Skitch to snap it, mark it up, and send it on in an instant. Your bold ideas stand out even brighter with Skitch.


People everywhere use Skitch to help them visually share their thoughts with others. Here are a few ways you can use it, too:

Mark up photos of silly, cool, or inspiring things you see and share them via social, email, SMS, and more.

Annotate photos of your backyard to plan out your vegetable garden.

Share a diagram of the earth’s layers and have students label it with you

Capture a map, mark it up, and share it with your friends to show them where you'll be.

Open a PDF and highlight changes to skip the lengthy, confusing email chains and give clear feedback.


Skitch’s PDF Markup feature requires an Evernote Premium account.

An Evernote account is required to save to Evernote. All other capturing, mark up and saving and sharing functions are free and do not require an Evernote account.

Simple and Easy to use

Downloaded based on an online review on free Screenshot apps. It woks quite well and does a better job than the default option that is cluttering the desktop.
BUT - Why do we need to bug us with Evernote integration, that's a great tool but I am not using it and the list of apps we can share it with is limited while that sort of works wiht the drag and drop compatible with most apps.
Would love an alternative to Evernote or at least make it less present and have the ability to organize the screenshots with Tags/ and or Folders and have a default saving option.

My goto screenshot and annotation app. Superb!

For several years, I have been using Skitch. Have tried the alternatives and I prefer Skitch. It’s fast, easy to use, and reliable as well. One feature I would like to see added is a Forward and Backwards button to navigate through captured images. At the moment I have to click back to the list of all images then click on the next image and so on. This is a little tedious. However, even with this little niggle, I love using Skitch. The integration with evernote is superb as well. When I am later reviewing my notes of the day, all the screen shots are available.

Some of the best features of skitch are the annotation and image sharing capabilities. Annotated text is very clear and stands out well on whatever image you are writing on. There’s a button at the bottom of the image viewer that let’s you drag and drop your image - instantly putting it in other applications. This saves so much time. As a business tool; it’s faster to screenshot, annotate & share, rather than write. Skitch saves me so much time. Just please add Forward and Back buttons to the image viewer. :D Thanks for a superb app.

Best Annotation App Ever

It is super simple to use. Anyone (young, old, technophobe) can pick it up within a few mins. There are powerful photo editors than can have more control over annotation but Skitch gets 95% of the results with 5% of the effort. I wished they contiune this product or some over developers copy it. It was available on Windows so everyone in our office was using it but they seemed to have shut down support for it! Please keep developing this software and stop trying to pull us into Evernote! I would happily pay £15/20 per user for everyone in the office and upgrade it every 2-3 years if they find ways to make it more simple and more beautiful.
