Ratings and Reviews
Best Mac Screenshot Tool I've Tried
I've tried a ton of tools over the years (Skitch, native macOS tool, LightShot, Nimbus, Monosnap). This one takes the cake for me. The free version is very generous with what it can do but I opted in to the paid version as I'd happily support the development of this.
The only feature that has been (rarely) finnicky is the scrolling capture, but they have very detailed help content to troubleshoot that. I only found one page (Salesforce Lightning page) where it would refuse to work.
One feature I'd love to see is the ability to edit annotations after you've already saved and closed the editor window. Even with the paid version and using the editor window, I don't see an option to reopen a previously annotated file, edit the annotations and re-save it. They would like need to add and support a native Xnip file format for this.
All being said, this tool meets my use cases 95% of the time and the interface is awesome. I use this tool daily as a tech consultant and it's clutch. I've been using it for about a year.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much!
An Xnip file to save the annotation is in the plan. But it takes a big afford to accomplish. So it may come out after a very long time.
Beautiful and cleverly designed
Xnip is a beautiful and cleverly designed screenshot and annotation app, but misses a few features.
- Cross hairs that extend to the screen boundaries both horizontally and vertically to make it easier to make screenshots of things that are not square, and don't have distinct boundaries.
- A way to organize, easily rename and edit screenshots within the app once they have been saved. Currently users are forced to go through the finders "Open With" contextual menu option and then scroll to the bottom of the list in order to annotate a screen shot once it has been saved.
exactly what I needed for studying
this is probably my first time writing a review ever.
I study a lot and always take screenshots to quickly pan back to the materials.
however, they are always a big hassel to delete, Ill spend at least 10 mins monotonmusly deleting them from the mac's "preview" which takes forever. with this, I can take the screenshot and click the red X buttom to quickly delete It.
thank you so much. hope you consider giving me a free upgrade to the full version for this great review. haha
