Eating Crow on CleanShot X 4.5

For so long, I resisted CleanShot X, the screenshot replacement tool. I told myself that I was such a badass with the built-in screenshot tools that I didn’t need an app, even though everyone kept telling me how they loved CleanShot and it is fairly priced and available through Setapp, making it effectively free for me.

And yet, I still resisted.

About six months ago, I begrudgingly installed CleanShot X and now I can’t imagine life without it. The latest update (version 4.5) adds even more, with the ability to add background images to your screenshots, smart cropping, and capture history. What a great app. Here’s CleanShot’s video showing the latest updates.
