Sharpshooter lets you rename your screenshots with pinpoint accuracy. Sharpshooter is a small utility which aids the management of screenshots.

Sharpshooter lets you manipulate and process the screenshot while it is still fresh on your mind.

When you take a screenshot on Mac OS X with Command-Shift-3 (or with another variation) Sharpshooter will present a window where you can review the picture and choose what to do with it. You can either rename it from its default name to something more descriptive, move the screenshot to the Trash, or cancel the operation keeping the screenshot as it is.

What's New

I love this app. It's very simple and easy to use. You can use the menu icon to access it, like other capture apps, but this app is the best because when I do an "Apple" screen capture it takes over and pops up a window and gives me options. I can rename it, choose a different file format to save it in if I don't want the default (PNG), it let's me choose what folder I want to save it in if I don't want the default, or even discard it if I don't like the capture. This makes using it much more spontaneous than the others, what they call "screen shot monitoring." Compared to the others that charge, it is not expensive either. And I looked at the free ones today once more, especially the ones with five-star ratings, and I'm still staying with Sharpshooter. I've used it with every OS from Snow Leopard to Mavericks. Just installed it on Mavericks and it is faster than it was on Lion. In the past, when I've made suggestions, they've responded, too. They haven't had a review in quite awhile, and I thought it was time. I'm a fan and I am very grateful to the developers.

Name and save screengrabs without interrupting workflow! Excellent clutter-buster and time-saving addition to my must-have helper apps. Nice! (sorry I can't change 4.5 in review window. Should be all 5s, IMO!)

Great app but it keeps crashing all the time on my new MBP Retina
with Mountain Lion 10.8.2. Also it doesn't start at cpu startup although I added it to startup items under System Pref. accounts. I sent an email to developer Kerlmax last week -still no reply.
In summary;
Nice and conveniant app -when it works, no active support.
Test the trial first!

This product is simple to use, stable, and does what it says without any fuss or exorbitant upgrade costs. It is good value and I can highly recommend it after using it for years.

Why pay for this?

I can only highly recommend SKITCH. It's free and just beautifully designed. Works just perfect for screenshots! And no, I am not the developer or in any way affiliated! Just a VERY happy user.

I tried to buy this program from MacUpdate this evening, but the purchasing screen did not allow me to do so. (No "purchase" button, and no field for entering my email, in spite of the label that suggested there should be a field.) Very odd problem.

There is a prominent green BUY NOW button on the top right of this page:

Are you having a problem with the MU Promo cart?

It turns out there was an issue on the MU Promo page which should be resolved now.


I am having the same problem trying to purchase it this morning, using different browsers and computers from different hot spots. All return this message:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '{' in /www/mupromo.com/application/controllers/CartController.php on line 888


All issues should be resolved. Please email support @ macupdate .com if you are still encountering any.

I tried this software and I have to say I liked it very much. But (unless the developer has added something to it that wasn't in the version I tried) it seems far too expensive for the amount of use I would get from it.

I use a nifty lite app called Jing that will create a screen grab of whatever area of the screen or window you want, or create a video. Once the screen is grabbed you can annotate it with text and shapes. It's free and works great with Lion. The default save is to name it using the current date and time, but you're always able to rename it on save. Control-J is the key shortcut.
