SnapNDrag Pro is screen capture made ridiculously easy. Here is an app you didn't know you need until you try it.
-- WHO IS IT FOR?
As the old saying goes, "A screenshot is worth a thousand words."
There are myriad reasons to take a screenshot: note-taking, tech support, comparison shopping, on-screen reference etc.
SnapNDrag is the perfect screenshot tool for students, teachers, designers, developers, support … just about anyone who uses a computer, really.
Why use SnapNDrag over OS X's built-in Grab? Because SnapNDrag does much more than just *take* screenshots. Please read on.
-- SHOOT ● ORGANIZE ● ANNOTATE ● SHARE
SnapNDrag makes taking screenshots super easy. Click, select and the screenshot is added to your library.
SnapNDrag maintains a library of all the screenshots you have ever taken. Think of it as iPhoto for screenshots. You can organize by Folders. You can batch rename items. You can type into the search field and get live updates in the browser. SnapNDrag maintains its own Trash so you undo a delete if you need to.
If a screenshot is worth a thousand words then an annotated screenshot is worth a million. Simply double click to open an item for editing in Preview. Use Preview's edit tools to add text, draw arrows or circles. When you hit Save in Preview, SnapNDrag instantly picks up the changes and updates the browser. Since what you're editing is a *copy*, you can easily revert to the original.
When it comes time to share, SnapNDrag provides many ways to do that. Use the Share button to send via Mail, Messages, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr. Or drag a screenshot from the browser and drop it into the Mail or Message you're composing -- in fact, you can drag it to pretty much any app where it makes sense. And if you're old school, copy-and-paste works too.
-- POWERFUL YET SIMPLE
Don't let SnapNDrag's simplicity fool you. When you dig deeper, you will find lots of options to satisfy the power user. For example, you can activate functions using global hot keys. You can also run SnapNDrag as a background app (no Dock icon).

Ratings and Reviews
I've used many screenshot organizers, but this one is the best I've tried, and certainly the most bang for the buck. One nice feature is that SnapNDrag makes it easy to move your library from computer to computer or change it's location. The only thing that's missing is an option to automatically send the screenshots to a specific sub-folder assigned to screenshots from the specific application. I suppose they didn't add this because screenshots can be taken of app windows that are not in the frontmost active application; however, most screenshots are taken of the active application's windows, so that would reduce the amount of manual sorting. Only white-listed apps with would need to be auto-sorted and the rest could be assigned to the "unfiled" folder for manual sorting. I take thousands of screenshots and 99% are within the active front application, so that would save me very much time.
A great product, there's no comparable competitor.
I've heard that the next macOS will contain it's own screen capture mechanism. If so, I wouldn't bet on it being as competent and easy to use as SnapNDrag, which I've used for many years now. This iteration is the best: easy to use, easy to categorize and store pics, easy to embed in other media, easy to send with mail, etc., etc.
One of the other reviewers here worried about being able to literally snap and drag the item into a text or form. Yes, you can. It just requires that the receiving document being able to accommodate a PNG graphic. (That's SnD's default.) If not, simply use a pull-down menu to specify saving an image in another format, either as a JPEG in one of three qualities or TIFF or GIF.
Seems good, not useful for me though
My use case is pretty simple. I take a lot of screenshots that I need to rapidly send and drag into other applications, etc. I was looking for an app that I can quickly access my screenshots instead of opening up a folder and searching for it. I wish there was a way to access the screenshots quicker, much like screenshots on iOS 11.
The second item which I’m not sure was a problem with my system or a bug, but I had changed my screenshot location to a custom folder, then changed it back to desktop, and still the “import screenshots from desktop” option didn’t seem to work. Nothing would get imported with the normals screenshot tool.
Feel free to contact me if I misused the app and I will happily change my rating. Otherwise it seems like a good app for what it has implemented.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
