Grab & Go

Screen grab and markup tool

Download Skitch and instantly grab a screen shot, mark it up, add comments, drag it to a document, or send it via email. An essential tool for interface designers.

Don’t let the playful interface fool you. Skitch is a surprisingly powerful screen grab utility for Macintosh users that is dead simple to use. Fire up Skitch, make a screen grab (Skitch can capture an entire screen, a window, or a snapshot of a selected area), and simply drag and drop the result into an open application. Built-in markup tools are presented in an “always ready” interface that makes it simple to annotate a screen capture for use in tutorials, user guides, and interface design applications.

Skitch seems designed from the ground up with sharing in mind. Saving screen grabs and including them as part of an email is as simple as selecting the “mail this image” command from the File menu. Skitch immediately opens your email application with the screen grab already in place. For graphic designers, web producers, and illustrators, it’s a superfast, goofproof way to get immediate feedback on works in progress.

A dedicated online area at www.skitch.com enables designers to post their projects and share it with a selected workgroup or post to a website url. Seamless integration with iPhoto and iSight and iChat extend the capabilities of Skitch. Skitch will save screen grabs in jpg, pdf, png, svg, and tif formats.
