As a designer, it’s very useful to have an application for screenshots as they save time and get better results already with some degree of compression, ready for the web and emails.
PicPick is one of these applications designed to capture everything that is on the screen, no matter if it is a game, a video or just some web browsing, but it also has an image editor built in, for quick image editing and continue saving time.
But you can also define an area for the screenshot instead of the whole screen, so you don’t have to crop the image later on.
A very simple to use yet powerful free tool.
