Shottr free download for Mac


Version 1.5.3

Screenshot tool for those who care about pixels.

Shottr overview

Shottr is a small, fast screenshot app that helps designers and UI developers to explore their pixels.

Scrolling Screenshots on Mac

Take a screenshot of a long web page or capture conversation in a chat. Shottr is probably the only free Scrolling Screenshot app for Mac.

Pixelate or remove objects

Hide parts of your screen behind pixelated curtain, or remove sensitive information as if it was never there.

Markup screenshots

Add text annotations to your screenshots, draw lines, arrows, and simple shapes.

Use it as a Screen Ruler

Press ↑ or ↓ key and move your mouse to measure vertical size, ← or → for horizontal size. Click to imprint the measurement on the screenshot.

Unclutter your desktop

Select a dedicated folder to save screenshots on ⌘ S. Great for purchase receipts, reminders, archive items, random images, etc.

Zoom in on your pixels

Think of Shottr as your digital magnifying glass. If you need to have a closer look at something, take a screenshot and zoom in.

Text recognition (OCR)

Came by a text that won’t select? Press a hotkey and select an area - Shottr will parse the text and copy it to the clipboard.

Proven performance

Shottr is a tiny (1.2mb) native app optimized for M1. It takes only 17ms to grab a screenshot, and ~165ms to show it to you. You can take a screenshot, press Cmd+S and save it before the default macOS preview box would even show up.

Color picker

Take a screenshot, zoom in, move your mouse over the pixel and press the TAB key to copy color under the cursor.
