Software recommends for Mac
Hello, Mac curious here. Just gone for a family iMac and after a couple of recommends for software – image editing and HTML mainly. Nothing super fancy at the moment… resizing, drawing simple vector pics, screen capture would be nice. Need to jiggle with website code now and then, something with WYSIWYG, code view and preview would be nice. Cheep and cheerful or free end of the spectrum. What do you like?Posted 4 years agojohndohMember
hold down cmd and shift press 4 and that brings up some little cross hairs in the place of the cursor – drag that across the screen to create a rectangle and it’ll capture whatevers inside and save it to the desktop
Or Ctrl>Alt>4 then hit the spacebar to get the entire of the window/browser you have open – easier than faffing with the cross hair 😉Posted 4 years agoraisinhatMember
Another recommendation for pixelmator here, found it to be definitely worth the money over GIMP. Grab is the built in tool for screen capturing as well, even if that does involve a few more steps than the direct shortcuts. Do yourself a favor and get Alfred, it does so many different functions and you save a lot of time by keeping your hands on the keyboard. Growl for better notifications, and f.lux for not burning your eyes out when it gets dark.Posted 4 years agomuppetWranglerMember
Sorry to keep this on the same tiny point but there is a a screen grab utility that comes installed on the mac called grab. Does area, window, screen and timed screen. That should cover you for most of your screen grabbing requirements.
Cant really help much with the other stuff, my mac is a work machine and is Adobe’d up to the hilt.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember

Try Skitch for screen shots – it’s free from the App Store and connects to a free evernote account. Really simple to use and it’s got image/screen shot sharing and annotation built in.
I use Coda (from Panic) for coding. Has a preview but no wysiwyg view. Espresso also gets good reviews. If you need wysiwyg then look at rapid weaver. Not tried it but it seems to get good write ups.
For none adobe creative apps, sketch and Pixelmator seem to be the go to apps.Posted 4 years ago
