Please note: LittleSnapper has been replaced by Ember.

LittleSnapper allows you to take screenshots of an entire webpage, or specific portions of your screen in general, without cluttering your desktop with a ton of icons. It then organizes those snaps into a library where you can tag, rate and comment them.

It also comes with some built-in vector tools that allow you to mark up your images with text, callouts, shapes, lines, arrows, blurs and highlighting. Best of all, the annotations are all non-destructive allowing you to hide and show them at a moment's notice.

Wow! realmacsoftware has done us a huge favor by removing every reference to little snapper on their support pages and everything links to ember.app instead (they still need to remove one button in the nav menu)

Come on, you can stop selling the app but to cut support information and remove extensions/bookmarklets is just an even larger slap in the face to current users and those who gave you the capital to create the "professionally priced" Ember, which is amateurishly thought out and implemented.

So Ember users should know that you will arbitrarily decide to cut the app and remove all reference of ember from your website so those using it can't read the FAQ or troubleshoot? I can't wait until the next great idea coming out of your lab is released and the "suite" price that comes with it.

How about you do something for everyone who used the app and put back information! Too much extra cash spent on hosting those couple of pages and extensions/bookmarklets right? Even better the app, the last decent thing made by your company should be made free... drop support altogether but let everyone have access. Exactly like Panic did with Candybar.

I guess true colors are hard to hide, but at least make an effort to not make screwing over customers a priority.

Is Little Snapper dead now that the developer released Ember?
http://www.realmacsoftware.com/ember/

If so, that would be a little frustrating for Little Snapper users like me. And since Ember is MAS only, there's no upgrade path.

Even worse: Ember has a completely different purpose that Little Snapper. Drawing tools have been stripped down while I don’t need the "social aspect"…

Looks horrible on Retina display. Too bad. Why does it take so long to make apps work with Apple products? I have other apps that have been working nicely with the Retina display for months now.

I brought this from a bundle thinking it was good...


I faced serious problems with the black circles in the edges. I have to recapture the same screenshots many times and then cropping the image.


This is there since a year ago and the vendor has not made any changes to fix it. There's Skitch which is FREE and works as claimed.

Screenshots created with this app do not include thumbnails (i.e. resource fork) so if an alias is made you will not see a thumbnail for the alias. This makes the alias worthless as a _visual_ indication as to what the original image looks like.

If you are seeing a thumbnail for the _original_ screenshot it is only because you have the window or Desktop set to "Show icon preview." But the alias will _never_ show a thumbnail no matter if "Show icon preview" is checked or not.

Snapz Pro X includes an actual thumbnail so all aliases of their screenshots also include a thumbnail.

This is a deal breaker for me. I will not pay for an update until this option is included.

Wow, the first VIABLE alternative to SnapzProX!

This is a jewel, so far no issues. We may recommend this to our global staff for documentation.

I retract my 4.5 star rating...it appears LittleSnapper uses a proprietary database to store images, rather than simply saving as files. Select - command+delete - bye.

This app, being one of the leading ones in this niche, slowly falls behind the today's needs.

1. Bad screenshot sharing options.
Beside Flickr -- which is not the best place for it -- there's only an FTP. And by the way, if I only have Flickr (or FTP) set up for sharing, I still have to click twice because of that stupid pop-up menu.

2. No syncing.
Sure, you can put the library file into your dropbox folder. But, say you have a library, which is 1 GB in size. You place it in dropbox folder and after 2 days it finally completed syncing. But then you take a new screenshot and now dropbox has to re-sync the whole library package (which is 1 GB, remind you) all over again.

Sounds a lot like the iPhoto library...agreed, there needs to be a flatt(er) file format rather than the monolithic (potentially imploding; backup nightmare) solution. I haven't thought to share the database, but it is a valid concern.

Version 1.8.2 still works with PPC Macs as well as Mac OS X 10.5 :-)

Strange enough: the app still runs on PPC but the captures are unertain, sometimes only a part of what you've selected, sometimes the desktop instead of the app you're using... (this is since 1.8.3)
1.8.2 was working ok!

Can't download newest upgrade from MacUpate for some reason nor from the developer's website. When I tried VersionTracker I also had problems but was able to get software downloaded only to find out it was the version I had. The App Store does not show it as purchased when I know it was. Very frustrating.
