Today marks a major moment in the life of Skitch for Mac: you can now share through Evernote. With a single click, send your annotated images, screenshots and ideas directly into Evernote and share them through our beautiful Skitch sharing interface.
Sharing with Evernote
Ever since we launched Skitch for Android and Skitch for iPad with Evernote sharing, you’ve asked us to bring it to Mac. Well, here it is.
There are a couple of ways to set up Evernote sharing.
- Click on the new Evernote elephant icon along the top of the app
- Go into Settings and choose Evernote from the sharing options
Once you have it set, all of your images will go straight to Evernote. We recommend setting Evernote as your default sharing option.
Now that Skitch for Mac can save images to Evernote, all of the photos, screenshots, maps and mockups you choose will be available on any of your devices. So, wherever you are, you can always access the images you sent to Evernote.
A look to the future
Easy sharing to Evernote is one of the big Skitch user requests. The other big request has been to simplify and clean up the Skitch.com site. Rather than rebuild Skitch.com, we wanted to create a great image sharing experience for all Evernote users. So, we did. It’s completely clutter-free and perfectly highlights the image. Plus, now you can see your Skitch images right inside of Evernote.
What this means for Skitch.com users
If you’ve been using Skitch.com, then today you’ve gained a new sharing option, but otherwise things are unchanged. In the near future, we will transition away from Skitch.com sharing in favor of Evernote sharing. This transition will allow all Skitch users to experience the many benefits of Evernote.
We will continue to support existing Skitch.com content, so all of your images (and related links) will continue to be available. We’re also working on an export tool, which will allow you to easily download all of your old Skitch images and then save them to Evernote, if you like. That’s coming soon.
We’re very excited about this change. Moving to Evernote means that Skitch for Mac maintains all of its fun, easy sharing features, while gaining cross-platform sync, a much-improved shared view and a significant reliability upgrade.
