macOS Mojave Upgrade Screenshot Tools with Video Capture and Annotation


With macOS Mojave, Apple is bringing the dramatically improved screenshot tools from iOS over to the Mac, including support for annotation markup, and even letting you easily take videos of your desktop.

Once you take a screenshot using the built-in hotkeys, you’ll see the thumbnail briefly show up in the lower right-hand corner of your screen, just like it works on your iPhone now.


Click it, and you’ll be presented with annotation tools that let you mark up your screenshots just like the tools in the Preview app—you can draw on them, zoom in to sections of the picture, or perform other operations like cropping the image.

The tools might not be quite as powerful as some third-party tools are, but they are likely good enough to do what most people need.
