I finally got to check out what all the talk is about with Skitch.
Skitch.com + Skitch = fast and fun image sharing.
Skitch.com 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 ScrnShots.com’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 ScrnShots.com’s tool as it work with Windows as well.
