Pixel Perfect Screenshots
LittleSnapper was built to help designers and other creative-minded Mac users build up a design scrapbook. Whether it’s proofs of client work, live sites that interest you, or screenshots of your favourite Mac applications, LittleSnapper allows you to capture, organise, annotate and share them all - from one beautiful OS X application.
With LittleSnapper it’s easy to start capturing webpages and your desktop. From entire webpages - including the bits that are out of view in a standard browser window and important metadata such as the web address - to specific windows on your Mac, LittleSnapper can handle it. The super-smart screen-capture engine you can capture your entire desktop - multiple displays included - and the powerful area and window-snapping tools make it super-simple to capture any area of the screen you require.
Just to top it all off, there’s a built-in web browser that allows you to select specific webpage elements, snap them on their own and save them to your library for future reference.
Keeping your snaps organised is a breeze! LittleSnapper automatically categorises your snaps based on their type - websnap or screensnap - meaning that even before you’ve applied tags you can quickly locate the webpage you snapped last week!
As well as auto-categorising snaps as you take them, LittleSnapper allows you to build your own collections - either using drag or drop, or building Smart Collections based on tags or other snap metadata such as URL. Want to see only 5-star, Red-tagged website or snaps taken Today? No problem! That’s just two of the super-powerful, yet super-simple, rules you could set for a Smart Collection.
We know that you’ll want to give feedback on snaps. Whether you’re highlighting a UI element or simply wanting to point out a typo on your website to your over-typing copywriter, LittleSnapper’s seven powerful annotation tools mean you’ll always be able to give clear visual feedback.
LittleSnapper packs a formidable annotation toolkit with blur, vector shapes, text annotations (complete with callouts if you want them), crop and the highlight tool that dims out all but the key areas of a snap at your fingertips.
The LittleSnapper menu item and browser bookmarklet both allow you to snap webpages as you visit them - no interruption required. Alongside these tools, there's even a Safari Extension that allows you to add a Snap button to the Safari toolbar. LittleSnapper also saves the HTML behind each page for future reference.
LittleSnapper allows you to snap the entire screen complete with multi-display support, snap a specific area, or even a particular window. You can select a group of windows to snap by just clicking on the windows as you go, and if you need to complete an action before snapping there’s the handy Timed capture option to give you a countdown.
If you're wanting to save a specific area of a webpage, then the LittleSnapper browser allows you to open a page and navigate elements in the page hierarchy, just by hovering over them. Just rollover the page elements until you find the one you want, click to set the area to snap (adjusting the grab-handles if need be) and voilà - the element is snapped!
There’s all your favourite tag management options in LittleSnapper - a Tag Manager that lets you find, add, edit and remove tags - and also tag autocompletion. As you type tags into the Inspector, LittleSnapper suggests them based on those already in your library, making it super-speedy to get your images all tagged up.
If you’ve got a large library, or simply need to group together a particular set of snaps, you’ll love collection. Collections are built by simply dragging and dropping your snaps into them: and if you’re an organisation junkie we’ve also built in folder support that allows you nest folders and collections to keep your sidebar in tip-top order.
Whilst drag and drop is great for manually grouping snaps, but wouldn’t it be great if you could group them automatically by creating rules for collections? That’s the power of LittleSnapper’s Smart Collections: whether it’s snaps that use a specific tag, or snaps from a particular URL you can group your images automagically using snap metadata.
If you need to draw a client’s attention to particular areas of a webpage or interface, the highlight tool allows you to subtly draw focus to them. Simply clicking and dragging fills the image, apart from your selected area, with a semi-transparent overlay - you simply ‘cut out’ areas from the overlay until you’re done.
Blur & Crop
If you need to hide some sensitive information from a snap, there’s no need to obscure content with a brightly-coloured blob: use the blur tool. As with all the annotation tools the blur feature is always-editable, meaning you can drag and resize as you please. If you only need to share a portion of a snap, there’s also non-destructive cropping built-in.
Text and Callouts
LittleSnapper’s text tools making writing on your snaps easy. There’s all the usual options you’d expect such as fully customisable fonts & colours, and the freedom to place the text absolutely anywhere you want. We’ve also built in a handy callouts option to the text tool, allowing you to add numbered callouts to any area of your images.
