Best Screenshot For Mac

Posted By admin On 16.02.22

MacOS's default screenshot function is good, but limited in features. If you need to take a lot of screenshots, here are the best screenshot apps for Mac. There's no need to use multiple programs to capture, edit and annotate screen grabs – this free screen capture software can do it all.

Several versions of this question have been asked, but I'm looking for something specific: what screenshot app for the Mac is closest to the Windows FastStone Capture utility that you would recommend?

i don't know what FastStone is, but i'm using Skitch. It has:- simple editing tools for screenshot;- upload to or your ftp server;- simple saving to different formats;


This is very similar to another question on SuperUser. See the suggestions there for other ideas.

I personally use Jing. It's got video recording functionality as well. If you pay for the pro version, you can save in non-flash formats or even upload to YouTube. Jing also lets you use your webcam, should you be using a machine that has one.


Lightweight, fast, efficient, does 100% of what a simple screenshot program does. I use FastStone Capture on Windows extensively, and so far, I find that InstantShot! replicates FastStone Capture the best, without adding all the bells-and-whistles that I hardly, if I ever, uses.

Give it a whirl, you'll like it. Oh, and it's free too!
