Skitch lets you get your point across fast. In this new series, we’ll explore the different ways you can communicate visually instead of relying on lengthy emails.

Evernote product manager Jamie Hull is a cyclist. She was working with a Portland, Oregon-based bike manufacturer to build her perfect wooden bike. With Skitch, she was able to ask her questions and show what she wanted by grabbing images from the company’s website. The process took seconds. Imagine how long it would have taken without Skitch.

Jamie was able to confirm the names of her desired wood types (wenge? birch?), then point out which wood types would be used for each bike part. She grabbed the screenshots, added text and arrows using Skitch. Then, simply dragged the images into an email.
