  1. As for me, I prefer to use ScreenshotsShots Remote. It allows to take screenshots of your monitor remotely. So you can see what is done on your computer.

  2. Hey, guys!
    I found a program to take screenshots on Mac! It is called Screenshots Remote.

    There is also a tutorial about this program on youtube.

    What do you think about this program?
    It can take screenshots itself or even remotely.I liked it.
    What is your opinion?

  3. I agree with Greg. I used Skitch and Little Snapper before trying Voila. I was quite happy with LS until I won a promocode of Voila. Skeptical at first, Voila overwhelmed me. It is features are a lot more advanced than Little Snapper, although can’t say much about the UI. But that doesnt matter as long it performs its functions well. The uploading features are simple and fast. I highly recommend to anyone who does a lot of screen capturing and annotating.

  4. I used to use SnapWeb, then Paparazzi. I purchased LS and used it quite sometime. Like you said, it has beautiful interface and some basic editing options. The problems I face with LS is it’s too slow while capturing webpage and it takes time to understand where to start with. Otherwise a cool tool. I purchased Macupdate summer bundle and got Voila screen capture tool as a bonus app. I didn’t check it till I read about it on the Macworld UK. I downloaded Voila (a little weird name though) and started using it and it has by far the most flexible capturing options on the Mac. it does not fall behind with annotating options as well. I can upload my screenshots to Flickr, FTP as well. I love this tool and it’s a permanent member on my MacBook Pro. Check the details http://www.globaldelight.com/voila/voila_overview.html
