Screenshot / screengrab library apps for Mac?

I'm looking for something to help me organize the massive overabundance of screengrabs I take. What screenshot library apps are good?

I heard LittleSnapper (www.realmacsoftware.com­/littlesnapper/) was decent, but $40 is intense. Anything else worthwhile?

I hate hate hate that Evernote have made tying Skitch to Evernote compulsory in Skitch 2.0. That alone dissuades me from using it, though I've been a happy user for years. Skitch was always great for grabbing and annotating, but organisation was never its strength.

Pixa is a (relatively) new application, free whilst in beta. It has fantastic potential, but in everyday use, I admit I'm having kind of a tough time wrapping my head around it. But it has some unique features that make it worth the mild headache, things like auto-tagging, smartly recognising colour, custom export templates…Good stuff.

When I'm not trying to give the new kid (Pixa) a proper chance, LittleSnapper is still my favourite.

Skitch is definitely a solid competitor and its a hosted service (owned by Evernote) which makes cross device sharing pretty smooth. Screeny is also really nice and supports both image capture as well as screen recording, library functions are lacking though.

GrabBox to a Dropbox folder is great.

I use TinkerTool (www.bresink.com­/osx­/TinkerTool.html) which, among other things, lets you change your Mac's default location for where it saves OS level screen caps.

If you're a dropbox user you can use Slingshot (www.macupdate.com­/app­/mac­/38640­/slingshot) . When you take a screen shot it moves it into a dropbox folder. As a bonus it automatically copies a link to your clipboard. It's great if you use an IRC, or some other chat during the day. Just screen shot and paste.

If you have bought the Macheist 3 bundle, you might already have LittleSnapper... It surprises me how often I find out I already have a license for an app that is recommended on some media!

I can't say I have tried it, but Clipboard (who had a demo at gdgt live seattle) looked promising for this sort of thing. However the "clips" are not really screencaps per se and I am not sure the cost either. the tags did seem to keep clips organized well and album support was there.

Maybe worth looking into though

I'm a technical writer so I take a lot of screenshots. I use SnagIt at work and I'm very happy with it. I haven't used the Mac version but they do have a free trial.

For the Mac I would say Little Snapper is the best program you can get for screenshots. Though I am suprised that it is $40, seems like I got it while it was on sale some time. Skitch is good too, but I did not like the managment of screenshots there at all. The library feature in Little Snapper and as well as the easy web snaps and window snaps are just awesome.

Is using a light weight app to capture then pointing the caps into dropbox not a viable solution?

I use puush.me/ for windows, it has a mac version. Seems bare bones... but all you really need is some smart hotkeys and auto url in clipboard/upload type stuff, which it does pretty well. Has it's own hosting along with the ability to throw the caps also in your dropbox or any other folder you wish, ftp or local.

I'm personally a huge fan of Snapz Pro X. Very simple yet effective app.

This hit the app store today but it's $39. There is no trial or demo so I don't know if you want to spend the $40 just to try it out aged­-and­-distilled.com­/napkin/
