If you are looking for a light weight freeware for your Mac to capture screenshots, you might want to check out Monosnap. It is user friendly software used for taking screenshots and recording screens, editing them and uploading them on cloud. The authentic version of the app can be downloaded from the App Store.
Upon successful installation of the software, it adds an icon on the Mac screen. If you click the icon, a menu is shown with different operations to choose from such as Capture Area, Capture Full screen, Record Video, Make Selfie, etc. If you select Capture Area, crosshairs appear on your screen that lets you select the area. After capturing the screenshot, you might want to add a little personal touch to your image. The app helps you do that by opening an edit box for the captured image. You can crop the image, show arrows and draw different shapes, highlight a portion and also add text. There’s also a blur tool which can help you hide your private information by blurring it.
Screen recording in the app is also equally simple. The recording area is defined by a rectangular frame. You can record the system sounds if you have virtual audio device configured properly on your Mac. You can customize various attributes for video recording such as Webcam, audio input and microphone, etc. You can save the screenshots and screen recordings either on your system or can upload to social media. Due to Apple’s policy, you can’t configure the directory to save the images. By default, they will be saved under Images folder. The app also gives you a direct link through which you can access your media. You can get the same link from the context menu of your browser.
The app has a Settings menu that lets you configure your user accounts, hotkeys and parameters related to your screenshots and screen recordings. It also gives you freedom to open a third-party editor after taking the screenshot should you directly want to see your screen capture in an external editor.
Monosnap offers you free cloud storage to save the captured media, provided that you are a registered user. And guess the size limit? Well, there’s no limit on the storage size and storage time! It’s really cool. Isn’t it? (Note: There’s a limit to the number of uploads per month imposed by CloudApp)
For its simplicity and frictionless operations, Monosnap definitely deserves a chance to be in your Mac!
