Customer Reviews

Perfect for my needs!

This app has all the things I need! I highly recommend it, if you are making screenshots for manuals and other instructional materials.

Separates everything on the screen into layers, so I can easily delete menu bar clutter, desktop icons, even the desktop itself.
It captures the cursor in its own layer, so I can put it wherever I need it.
In Photoshop, it also puts the little info boxes that PS generates, for instance the one showing how many pixels you’ve moved, into their own layer.
It separates drop down menus (and submenus) into their own layers. Talk about making my life easy!
It can take timed screenshots, so I can set it up, and then hold down keys that would prevent the screenshot from working
You can save the screenshots to any folder on your hard drive

It doesn’t let you change the keyboard shortcut (shift-command-5)

There are no social media gizmos, but since I’m doing the screen shots for instructional materials, I don’t need that. It might be a consideration for others, though.

Very nice app

If you do a lot of training documentation and video tutorials, this app is an amazing way to capture your screen and remove unwanted distractions. Simple and effective. Would agree that it would be nice to group the layering, but doesn’t make or break the app at all.


Not for Multiple Monitors

Grab allows you the option of capturing the entire screen, a window,a selection, or a timed screen.

ScreenShot is only going to caputre the entire screen.
If you have multiple monitors being used, all screens of your monitors are captured into one file by ScreenShot.

ScreenShot only seems to be mimicing Apples own keystroke command for capturing the screen.
Command-Shift-4 (w/wo spacebar).

ScreenShot file type is different so it allows a pixel editor to open it directly.

Other optional apps:
Skitch, Monosnap, Jing.

With multiple monitors, ScreenShot is not very useful.
