Best Screen Capture for macOS

The best tool out there that I have found is Skitch.

Whats great with Skitch, is that it’s awesome to capture screenshots and annotate them right in the app and being able to just copy paste the annotated screenshot to any other application, be it Skype for Business, e-mail or Microsoft Teams. It just works, and what’s even better, it includes free synchronisation of screen snaps to Evernote.

So if you ever look for a great screen snap/screen shot utility for macOS, look no further!

  4. Uncheck “Set locale environment variables on startup”
