How CloudApp’s Image Capture Works

Have you ever heard the expression, “A picture is worth a thousand words”? CloudApp’s revolutionary Screen Recorder shows just how accurate that saying really is.  We have all had the frustration of trying to explain an issue, description or even a solution to someone when we don’t have the words to convey our meaning. 

With CloudApp you can image capture your screen to show or explain exactly what you are thinking faster and more accurately than you ever could with text. Not only can you capture and share images, you also have the ability with CloudApp to record your voice that will give you the opportunity to expound upon the image. Additionally, CloudApp allows you to add your face to be more personal.

Capture And Annotate GIFs

With CloudApp, you can also capture and annotate animated images, or GIFs. Using the GIF Creator on CloudApp provides a huge upside when communicating with your team, friends, families and customers. A GIF, short for, Graphics Interchange Format, works similarly to a short video, yet is a much smaller file, making it easier and faster to share. With the image capture for Mac feature, you have the ability to turn any area of your screen into an animated GIF. GIFs are great for training, documentation, on-boarding, and sales emails.


Another incredible feature of CloudApp’s image share is the Draw & Annotate feature that makes your ideas stand out, and quickly gives you the power to explain yourself more clearly, using annotations, lines, arrows, and emojis.
