Last year I did a video on getting the most out of screenshots on your Mac with the built-in tools. Since then, I’ve gone all in with CleanShot X.… This is a post for MacSparky Labs Members only. Care to join? Or perhaps do you need to sign in?
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.
