A well known concept and one that misses the point like many others: I want to upload the screenshot to my own server, not to any cloud services. So I am still staying with the free Skitch V1. The app may be very well implemented and match my workflow (shortcut -> upload -> done), as long as it won't support FTP/SFTP, I won't even give it a try.

What a great app! I've been looking for an app that does just this. All I have to do is take a screenshot and a shortcut to that screenshot is right in my clipboard for easy sharing! Also lets you run in the background so you can close the app completely and it's still doing its magic. Very cool service.

I use this all the time. For work (for showing screenshots of problems to fellow developers) to play (showing hilarious things I've come across on the web). It's also super handy for creating image links for blog posts. The problem with linking to an image on some other server is that you never know when that image will go away. With this, you know that those images will always be saved in your dropbox.

What's more, it's super handy to have an archive of my screenshots in a central folder on my harddrive that I can then index with something like Picasa. I have an online archive of all my screenshots. It's both amusing and valuable.

Great app! At $2.99, a bargain!
