Skitch’in It


I finally got to check out what all the talk is about with Skitch. + Skitch = fast and fun image sharing. is a webservice that works hand in hand with our application Skitch to give you 1-click uploading of images for fast and fun image sharing.

Currently, I use Paparazzi to take screengrabs/screenshots of sites/design I feel interesting. Before getting my MacBook Pro, I used a Firefox plugin called Screengrab.

Meanwhile, my first impression of Skitch in adding it to my workflow of documenting sites/design snippets is pretty good. The auto upload feature to Flickr alone is good. I just hope it provides another feature, well a couple:

  • Tags, Title, and Description dialogue/input-box
  • and a way to just specify a URL so Skitch can take a screenshot of the actual page itself

With the latter, what I am trying to say is that currently, I still use Paparazzi to grab the actual webpage, and then “copy (the) image” into Skitch’s canvas to upload it to Flickr; at least I haven’t found out a way for Skitch can do it automatically as I’ve only spent 10-minutes on it so far.

Anyways, Skitch is providing to be better than I expected; especially when I need to do snippets vs whole webpages. I guess the only application I can compare it is with‘s tool, ScrnShot Desktop. However, I would give point to Skitch as it can just upload to your Flickr account and others, while you’re just stuck with having it ScrnShots (respectively).

PS. I do give a point to’s tool as it work with Windows as well.
