I want to select where my images are saved, not Snip

It’s an OK program but it’s not as polished as Skitch 1.0.12. My primary complaint is that Snip forces me to save it to either the “Pictures” or “Downloads” folder within my user directory. I don’t want them sent there. I have two drives, an SSD and a harddrive in my 27” i7 iMac, and I want to send all “temporary” downloads to a “Downloads” directory on the hard drive, NOT the SSD. No can do with Snip. Deleted.

Good functionality; mediocre usability and support options

This application comes closed to the Windows Snipping Tool from Microsoft Windows that I have found so far. The preferences screen is a little confusing, and there are some rough edges when using it But for my main use case — copying aerbitrary part sof my screen to my clipboard — it’s wonderful.

I tried to contact support to give feedback, but the feedback is lined to having a QQ Mail account, which I don’t have (and don’t want to sign up for). My feedback would have been:

• Include x-axis and y-axis (perhaps an option) so that when I'm selecting a rectangular area around an odd shape (e.g. a circle), I can easily tell where to place my corners by where the axes extend across the screen.

• Alternatively, if there were a way (perhaps a modifier key) that after placing my original selection, I could adjust the edges before the capture is taken. That way I could slightly adjust the edges to be just how I want.

• Alternatively, if there was a way to crop a snip after it's been capture but before it's saved (to clipboard or file), then I could just snip a larger area and them crop it down after it's captured.

My most used utility application

It’s fast, intuitive, and useful. I’m a student and if I need to screenshot a graph or data from a PowerPoint lecture slide (or online textbook) to put into my notes, this is the quickest and easiest way to do so without interupting what I’m doing. The “Grab” utility that comes with a Mac just doesn’t cut it, plus you can’t draw directly on the screenshots in that.

Plus, a quick screen/window/image grab is always available, I don’t have to go to a separate application to do it, Snip is always open. I have yet to come across any bugs.

I’ve recommended this to my friends/family as a great utility.
