Taking screenshots in Mac OS X is easy, but the image generated by it is of high resolution & size. And this is not recommended for usage in the blog/website. There are a couple of free tools available for taking screenshots in App Store but I found Lightshot screenshot better than all for mac yosemite.
Lightshot is a screenshot tool with variety of features which includes,
- Quick Screenshot of the selected area;
- Powerful editor to edit the image if you want just before you save it, so that you don’t have to again open the image in GIMP/other editor to edit it.
- Simple Interface, unlike other applications. It has user friendly interface which makes it easy to use.
- Share your screenshot on web.
- It is a cross-platform tool.
