Mac: Evernote has updated its screengrabbing and image annotation tool, Skitch, with more precise annotations, an adjustable canvas and other improvements.
As the image above shows, you can now draw precise lines at 45-degree angles and create perfect squares and circles by holding down the Shift key while drawing. Shapes can also be more precise now, thanks to a lower minimum size (great for when you need to circle a tiny element in the image).
You can also extend the canvas to add annotations next to the image or screenshot. The canvas will automatically expand when you start typing in the margins of the image to give you more space or you can set an amount to stretch the canvas.
Besides the shape and canvas features, Skitch now saves images as special re-editable PNG files. This means you or someone you’re working with can reopen the image in Skitch to adjust the annotations.
Finally, Skitch will let you get straight to annotating if you deselect the new option in the app’s preferences to “Show advanced options after a screen snap”.
