Mac Image Editor Skitch is Now Free on the Mac App Store
Skitch, a simple image editor for Mac OS X, is now available free from the Mac App Store. Skitch calls itself an image swiss army knife, but you can think of it like Preview on steroids, with your standard basic image editing features of rotating, cropping, flipping, in addition to various screen grabbing features and the ability to annotate images with pen, text, shape, and arrow tools. The official feature list is:
• Screen grab your desktop, web browser or apps
• Annotate with pen, text, shapes and arrows
• Instantly upload to skitch.com, Flickr, FTP & .me
• Resize, crop, rotate & flip images
• Capture full length (longer than your screen) websites
• Take photos with your built in webcam
• Open and save in many different image formats
• Archive and re-use images from your Skitch history
Of course the other side to Skitch is that you can instantly upload and share images to Skitch.com directly through the app, which makes sharing pictures extremely easy.
In case you were wondering, Skitch used to be $9.99 but is now free because it was bought out by Evernote, which is a great note taking and syncing utility.
