People everywhere use Skitch to help them visually share their thoughts with others. Here are a few ways you can use it, too:

Mark up photos of silly, cool, or inspiring things you see and share them via social, email, SMS, and more.

Annotate photos of your backyard to plan out your vegetable garden.

Share a diagram of the earth’s layers and have students label it with you

Capture a map, mark it up, and share it with your friends to show them where you'll be.

Open a PDF and highlight changes to skip the lengthy, confusing email chains and give clear feedback.


Skitch’s PDF Markup feature requires an Evernote Premium account.

An Evernote account is required to save to Evernote. All other capturing, mark up and saving and sharing functions are free and do not require an Evernote account.

Just brilliant ...

One of the best and most easily useable and versatile tools in the kitbag.
Used everyday - several times, and its just a pleasure to use and faultless.
Great effort on the part of the developers - and a must have if your constantly copying and pasting and marking up and adjusting images, screenshots and need to annotate as smoothly and quickly as possble.
Just Brilliant !!!

Great Annotation App

I’ve used this app now for years. Fantastic annotation app. especially like the ability to inlcude the summary at the front of the annotated document. Would be great to have more notes style capability with the badges (eg twitter length text would be great as a dropped ‘post it’ and actaully using PDF highlight rather than overalying a drawn translucent line would be welcome.

Agree with the previous review

I am a user of SnagIt, both Mac version and back in my bad old PC days and the ability to capture a menu is quite simply, wonderful. Skitch does everything else as advertised. Words very well. Just got to remember the keyboard shortcut….!!
