Editors' Review

Skitch for Mac is a convenient utility for capturing , editing, and exporting screenshots for all kinds of presentations and other uses. This lightweight program gives you just what you need to create an excellent finished product without a bunch of extra features getting in the way.

Pros

Capture options: There are several different ways you can choose to capture images through this program. Depending on your needs, you can opt for a fullscreen capture, or you can use the Screen Snap to select just one window or portion of a window. There is also a Timed Screen Snap option that can come in handy in a variety of situations.

Editing and markup tools: Once you have your shot captured, you may want to edit your image or emphasize certain areas. This program comes equipped with all kinds of markup tools to help you get your message across. You can quickly add text, highlight areas, place a stamp, pixelate a section, or crop the entire image.

Cons

Clunky interface: This app's interface isn't terribly intuitive or convenient to use. Once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to find what you're looking for quickly enough, but it seems needlessly complicated and clunky initially.

Bottom Line

Skitch for Mac is a competent free utility program that lets you capture and edit screenshots effectively. The interface could definitely be more intuitive, but since there aren't too many features, it doesn't take long to get the hang of things. This program is a good choice for anyone who takes and shares screenshots on a regular basis but who doesn't require advanced editing features.
