Skitch is an indispensable tool you will almost always find on my computer. I use it for image annotations. Skitch is a graphic software tool which allows you to take screenshots and edit them by adding arrows and text annotations. The app allows you to use an existing image or capture a new one, then add shapes, write on it, draw on it, annotate it any way you like. Ask me and I’ll say Skitch is a full package.
The app boasts of great features comparing it with its counterparts in the graphic annotation category.
Features of Skitch App
Clean and sleek layout
Skitch prides itself of a clean and sleek layout that I bet you will love at first sight. You can capture the current screen in full mode or manually capture a selected portion of the screen.
Support for different file formats
More than having a clean layout, the app supports a wide range of image formats such as PNG, BMP, JPG, JPEG, TIF, TIFF, or GIF. You can also create a new images from scratch using the built-in drawing tools.
Edit to your taste
Embed text, insert arrows, add ellipses, rectangles, rounded rectangles, and lines. Also highlight important information and pick the preferred colour for annotations. The app also provides the pen tool for drawing free-hand designs. Other features embedded in the app are the ability to apply preset stamps, pixelate the selected area, crop the pictures, and resize them. On the downside, you cannot capture an active window and customize the text fonts.

One of the unique features of Skitch is it’s portability. It’s available for just about every device you own or can think of. Supported devices are:
- Android devices
