CleanShot X features

CleanShot is the ultimate screen recording app made for macOS. With its rich toolkit, CleanShot actually feels like 6 apps in one. You can use it to swiftly capture Mac’s screen without desktop icons, record and trim video, annotate, save screenshots to dedicated cloud, and more.

Simple yet powerful

CleanShot teaches you to use simple actions while capturing the screen — yet provides tons of options to do it. You can grab the area, fullscreen, window, or even a scrolling window. Set a timer if you need a few seconds to capture the right moment. In your hands, it caters for your needs.

Hide desktop icons

CleanShot hides desktop icons, so that you can capture your Mac’s screen on the spot, without wasting time on a cleanup. If you need a quick capture, toggle the icons and bring them back once you’re finished. You can even set a custom wallpaper like an image or plain color for your screenshots.

Record screen

CleanShots lets you choose between recording a video or a GIF, whether you capture a specific window, part of the screen, or fullscreen. Even set your custom dimensions before hitting the Record button. You can also disable desktop notifications for when you’re recording.

Quick Access Overlay

Right after taking a screenshot, you’ll see a small pop-up window appear on the screen. It’s the shortcut to viewing, annotating, or sharing whatever you’ve just captured. Essentially, Quick Access Overlay gives you an instant editing toolkit, plus saves you from searching and reopening screenshots.

CleanShot Cloud

You can instantly save your screen captures to CleanShot Cloud, dedicated screenshots hosting integrated with the app. Right from the quick menu, upload your screenshot to the cloud, and get a link to it in a click. It simplifies sharing — and all screen captures remain in the cloud for 30 days free.

Annotate, highlight or blur

No screenshot is perfect. Using CleanShot’s built-in editor, you can highlight or hide specific parts of your screenshots as well as add annotations flexibly. Just click on the pencil icon in the Quick Access Overlay to edit screen captures in a flash.
