Capturing screenshots on a Mac is child’s play. The free Grab app in your Mac’s Applications > Utilities folder does. Even QuickTime Player can capture a fullscreen movie. What most of us want is an affordable way to snap, drag, and drop screenshots.
SnapNDrag Snaps And Drags
SnapNDrag has been the de facto screenshot grabber on my Mac for so long I’d swear it was a leftover from the previous century.
Here’s now to tell whether or not SnapNDrag will do what you want. It’s free. Or, at least, there’s a free version and a pro version with more features.
Capturing an image from your Mac’s screen should be easy and it is– if you can remember all the keyboard shortcuts and where OS X stores captured screenshots.
SnapNDrag captures and stores your screen, app window, and screen section grabs, and all you capture can be organized in folders displayed in the browser window. The original screenshot stays while you annotate until the cows come home.
The free version lets you rename images by the batch, run in the background, and has user customizable hotkeys to invoke whenever you need a screen grab.
The pro version lets you annotate using Preview and comes with a few additional options, including borders and scaling. You control the screen grab file format, too– PNG, JPG, or TIFF, and you can share with Mail, Messages, Twitter, and Facebook in OS X Mavericks. There’s a Mac App Store version and you’ll find few apps with as many five star reviews.
SnapNDrag is like good wine. It’s been around awhile but it seems to improve with age.
