Skitch is all about making it fast and simple to communicate your ideas. In our latest update for Mac, we’re taking a big step forward with major improvements to the interface and also support for the new OS X Mavericks operating system. Let’s take a look at some of the great new updates in Skitch 2.7:
When you open the app, the new annotation toolbar is one of the first of these improvements that you will notice. All of your tools are neatly lined up on the edge of your screen. When you choose a tool with multiple sub-options, a menu slides out to display them. The new toolbar design keeps everything cleanly tucked away to keep the focus on your content.
Whenever a submenu slides in, you’ll see a pin icon at the top. Click the pin and the submenu will stay in view. This is great for the style menus so that you can change the colors and sizes of multiple elements on the screen without very much clicking.
We’ve done a little reorganizing in this update to make navigating the app a more intuitive process. Everything you need to change the attributes of your image such as name, file type and size, have been moved down to the bottom edge of the screen. When everything is in one place, It’s much easier to make quick changes to your image before you share or save it.
New Icon and Brand
We first introduced our beautiful new brand on Skitch for iOS. With this update, it has made its way to Mac. You’ll notice flashes of the new brand throughout the app, and here’s the sleek new app icon for your dock.
Improvements and Fixes
With the introduction of OS X Mavericks, we’ve made a number of updates to the app that improve Skitch’s performance on your Mac. In 2.7, the app’s screenshot capabilities on multiple displays are much more powerful, and Skitch now manages power more efficiently than ever. We’ve also fixed a number of bugs for a better-polished, faster experience all around.
