How CleanShot Works
By selecting the CleanShot icon, it will display options to
- Capture Area
- Capture Full Screen
- Capture Window
- Scrolling Capture
- Record Screen
- Hide Desktop Screen
- Pin to the screen
When you take a screenshot, a small overlay label will appear on the corner of the screen. You can drag and drop the label anywhere on the screen. By hovering the mouse pointer over the label, you will have options to copy, edit, upload to the cloud, pin, and save.
By tapping the edit option, it will display annotation tools to customize your screenshot. Tap Done once you have finished all the editing. Tap Save to save the image locally or click the Upload icon to send the image to cloud storage. While uploading the image on the cloud, the sharing link will be copied to the clipboard automatically.
While recording, you can choose to record the screen either as GIF or video. If you had too many icons on the desktop screen, you could hide them easily before recording. Moreover, the app will hide the notifications automatically while recording. As the application comes with tons of options, you can customize everything according to your requirement.
