With Skitch, I often find myself wanting to take screenshots of different parts of the screen, annotating them, and combining them into one image. I could use a separate program for this last step, such as Acorn, but is it possible to do this from within Skitch?

Nope, not possible within Skitch.

The quickest workaround I've found to achieve that is using Keynote as a canvas, so you can combine the image in no time :

  • open a new 'White' theme in Keynote
  • drag & drop the 2 images from Skitch to Keynote
  • align the images in Keynote, resize, do some edits if necessary
  • take a snapshot with Skitch

Can't do it with Skitch, as noted. But LittleSnapper will work. It creates an image for each screen, then you can drop them all into a photo imaging app and compose into one image.


It's funny, Skitch has some weird limitations, so I use Powerpoint for this. Insert two screenshots, side by side, group them together then ctrl-click to "Save as Picture"
