How to Use a Screenshot App for Mac

How many times did you need to quickly show what’s on your Mac’s screen to someone online? Probably, quite a few. All you have to do in such cases is print the screen of your desktop, a particular website, or any other area, edit the resulting image, and share it. But how is it best to take a screenshot on your Mac...

for everyday communication?

Create images of your screen, highlight or add certain elements, and send the results to your friends or colleagues.

for making tutorials?

Edit screenshots and provide them as part of a tutorial on performing certain actions in an application or on a website.

for printing error screens?

Save error screens, add captions and arrows, and send the end images to a technical support specialist.

for solving business tasks?

Easily take screenshots when preparing a statistical segment or a step-by-step guide for your website visitors.

Just download Movavi Screen Capture for your Apple computer (Mac OS X 10.6 or higher) and follow the simple steps below.

1. Install the Screen Grab Tool for Mac

Download the grab software for your Mac to your hard drive. Open the installation file and follow the on-screen instructions.

2. Adjust the Screen Capture Frame

In the launcher window that will open, click the Take a screenshot button. Using the Crosshair tool, select the area of which you want to take an image. In the selected area, a screen capture frame will appear. You can easily adjust the dimensions and position of the frame if necessary.

3. Grab a Screenshot with the Screenshot Software for Mac

To take a screenshot without editing, click the Save screenshot icon. If you want to edit the screenshot after taking it, click the Save and edit icon.

4. Edit the Resulting Image (Optional)

If you click Save and edit, a window will open in which you can edit the screenshot. Cut unnecessary details using the cropping tool. Select and copy image parts that you want to paste into other areas on the screenshot. Add various auxiliary elements: arrows, lines, frames, highlighters, and text inserts.

5. Save the Edited Screenshot

To save the edited screenshot in JPG or any other popular format, just click Save As in the lower right-hand corner of the screen grabber for Mac and choose the destination folder.
