Skitch Editor's Review

Skitch is a user friendly and lightweight image capturing app for OS X that has been in the scene for quite some time. After its purchase by Evernote, the nifty Mac screen-capture tool has undergone some changes. You can still perform tasks with ease but few features have been omitted. However, this is freeware and offers enough features for average users.

Skitch runs on Macs equipped with OS X 10.7.4 and subsequent versions. The UI is intuitive and minimalist so that nothing comes in way of users.

As you launch the app, you see a gray window with white and blank canvas in middle. At the outer border of the app UI you get accessible options to accomplish tasks like canvas size change, image file format selection, webcam shot etc. After you select the snap option, the app prompts you to mark the screen region with a crosshair.

You can also set a countdown for snapping a picture. After you take a picture with the Mac’s webcam, the options to tweak with the snap appear. There are plenty of customizations you can pick from. Adding text to the image is possible as well.

To annotate an image you need to import it first in Skitch. You can use the Mac’s iSight camera for snapping an image fast. After that you can use the app’s annotation tools. You can add plenty of shapes and notes to an image easily in the UI.

As you work with an image after capturing it in the app, your project gets uploaded to Evernote account automatically. The automatic saving and syncing feature is ideal for busy users. You can leave the image at any point of time and return to it from the app’s home screen.

The latest version of Skitch has a downer. It lacks an eraser. You are dependent on the Undo function though. You get the chance to pick from a wide range of file formats like BMP, PDF and PNG. It omits the support for SVG standard though.

The Share icon in the app’s menu bar is handy when you want to share an edited image using platforms like Facebook and Twitter. You can also choose to share images through email.

Positive Points:
•    Minimal UI.
•    Freeware, easy learning curve.
•    Wide image format support, export options.
•    Annotations tools.

Negative Points:
•    No eraser tool.
•    No SVG support.

Post its takeover by Evernote, Skitch has undergone some changes. The ease of use is outstanding and the minimal UI will be liked by all. The image capture and annotation tools are nice. It lets you save images in popular formats and sharing them online can be done in a jiffy. The glitches like no SVG support and more importantly, lack of an eraser tool may irk some users. However, this freeware offers you really good performance.

Rating: 2.5/5
