Capturing an image of your Mac’s screen is one of the easiest things you can do on a Mac besides click an icon in the Dock or navigate to a folder in the Finder. Most of the Mac screen capture apps are free or cost very little because Apple builds in the same capability with keyboard combos, and the free Grab app in the Utility’s folder.
Snip is one of those new breed screen image capture apps, still free, which makes it just a little easier to capture screen snippets but also add labels of text.
There’s not much to learn and using it is nothing more than a click to the scissors icon in the Menubar.
Snip may be simple but it’s smart enough to identify app windows so it can easily capture a full window as an image file. Objects can also be dropped onto a Snip image– rectangle, ellipse, arrows, text, and even drawn handwriting brushes, and you get full control over object location, size, and color.
And, that’s it. It’s simple, fast, and free.
