Not for Multiple Monitors
Grab allows you the option of capturing the entire screen, a window,a selection, or a timed screen. ScreenShot is only going to caputre the entire screen. If you have multiple monitors being used, all screens of your monitors are captured into one file by ScreenShot. ScreenShot only seems to be mimicing Apples own keystroke command for capturing the screen. Command-Shift-4 (w/wo spacebar). ScreenShot file type is different so it allows a pixel editor to open it directly. Other optional apps: Skitch, Monosnap, Jing. With multiple monitors, ScreenShot is not very useful.
Several clear problems: - Cursor won’t be captures in “Adobe Illustrator” for example. Thus app is useless for screen capturing process shots. - Cursor not showing up when captured in Yosemite either? - Zero customization. The prefs control is a joke. I want to set my own hot key. Having it shift command 5 causes the cursor to change look. - No way to tell app to capture only primary screen, thus two displays are captured. Waste of time. Looks like it would be promising but just not working well on my 5K iMac running latest Yosemite OS.
Very nice app
If you do a lot of training documentation and video tutorials, this app is an amazing way to capture your screen and remove unwanted distractions. Simple and effective. Would agree that it would be nice to group the layering, but doesn’t make or break the app at all. Props TXTLABS.
This app is awesome. The only thing I could think of which would make it better is grouping of layers in the generated document. For example, each status icon on the menu bar gets its own layer in the document -- it would be great for these to all be grouped together in order to make managing layers easier.
Very cool app
This is very similar to Layersapp at less than 1/5 the price at retail. It saves all your screen elements into a layered PSD file.
