How To Paste A Snip On A Mac

It’s important to streamline and save time when snipping. Other snipping tools leave your desktop cluttered and disorganized. With CloudApp, your snip is saved immediately to a clipboard located in your toolbar. This makes your screenshots the easiest to share. Simply click on your toolbar, select the snip, then copy the link and paste - without ever leaving the screen.

If you’re concerned about staying organized or you’re not sure how to keep track of all this snipping, CloudApp allows you to search your screenshots by color, keywords and pictures.  

How To Paste a Screenshot into an Email

With every snip, CloudApp creates a customized link that’s easy to share and easy to protect. No more sensitive information getting caught in the wrong hands. Just snip, copy link and paste into an email - or into any other team communication platform like our favorite - Slack. If you want to add a password, the option is as simple as selecting setting ( next to copy link) right before you paste.

Another Mac Snipping Tool Shortcut

Want to say something on you screenshot? Point to a specific detail? No need to open a different app, or tool -  or even take your eyes off the difficult-to-capture image you’re trying to snip.

Simply snip, check your clipboard and select annotate. Make your notes and share. CloudApp is the fastest way to snip, annotate and share all at the same time and the only snipping tool for mac download that does all three in one easy sweep.

Why Annotate?

CloudApp Annotate shaves almost a minute and twenty seconds from a typical email or typing communication and helps support teams, designers and engineers cut down on time spent typing and talking by up to 300%. At that rate you might get to start skipping meetings all together. CloudApp helps you type less, so you can actually get more done.

Do More Than Just Snip

We love screenshots more than anyone out there but we know that screenshots alone aren’t enough to get the job done. Not when you’re dealing with customer care, complicated systems and fixing bugs.

Did you know you can use CloudApp  to create GIF’s that both customers and teams will love. Boost morale, convey dense information into a simple image and get the point across faster, in a more effective and entertaining way. GIFs are proven to convey more info faster - since 70% of people who learn better visually.

Love video? Love GIF’s? So do we and sometimes nothing gets the job done like a quick explainer video, or screen recording with a fast audio explanation. Customers connect better when they can see your face or hear your voice and it’s just easier to use  to explain difficult concepts, or complicated steps via video or screen recording.

The best part? Record the video or screen share once and share with other customers or team members having the same issue forever. Creating a library of screen recorded FAQ’s on your homepage will cut down on customer service time, leaving everyone happier.

In other words, CloudApp saves you from having to repeat yourself all day, everyday and your customers and teams will have a library of resources to visit every time they have to troubleshoot - before having to ask you for help.
