Hey everyone, Shotty is a simple Mac app that gives you faster access to your screenshots on the Mac. I created Shotty to save myself valuable time in my freelance design work, and now I'm selling it in the Mac App Store. Now you can drag and drop your recent screenshots into any application directly from the menu bar on your Mac, without switching windows. And yes, it works with Dropbox :) Get Shotty now from the Mac App Store to get faster access to your screenshots and save yourself time.

@_jacobruiz How does this compare to www.awesomescreenshot.com (what I use now for quick screens and annotating)
Andreas Duess
@_jacobruiz @scottjacques awesome screenshots is browser only, no?
Jacob Ruiz

@scottjacques I'm unfamiliar with that tool, but Shotty is a dead-simple way to to get super fast access to your screenshots. It's all about speed, focus, and simplicity :)
Scott Jacques
@_jacobruiz @andreasduess Correct!
Scott Jacques
@_jacobruiz It has its issues so I will try out your app. Based on the enthusiasm of others sounds like it worth a shot.

@dannypostmaa great to hear - thanks for using Shotty!
Arun Sathiya
This seems very cool. But, I use Keyboard Maestro https://www.producthunt.com/posts/keyboard-maestro to access my screenshots folder on Dropbox. That is the fastest way, IMO. Great app, BTW!

Michael Kolowich
Love the idea! If I had a dollar for every second I've spent searching throughout my desktop for the right screenshots..
Jacob Ruiz
Maker
@mekboston Tell me about it! Glad you like it :)
Pedro Wunderlich
My desktop is filled with screenshots. You've solved a pain point here. Great job, great execution!
Jacob Ruiz
Maker
@pddro Thank you Pedro, really glad it solved the pain point. I know it has improved my own workflow, happy to hear that it's helping yours as well!
Ryan Roberts
At last, a screenshot app in the menu bar that's super clean and simple to use. My only comments would be… is there a shortcut key to bring Shotty in view? Could images fit better height wise rather than having transparent space? I guess previews of very long images would need to be cropped.
Jacob Ruiz
Maker
@ryan_roberts1 Thanks for the thoughts. Going to keep these in mind for future refinements.
Sebastián León
This is outstanding. I use screenshots all the time for work, and fumbling to go to the finder directory where they're stored has been such an annoying pain. Well done!!!
Jacob Ruiz
Maker
@sebfeed Thank you Sebastián! Love to hear that.
Sebastián León
@_jacobruiz I have some feedback, what's the best way to share
Taylor Hunt

Love this!
Jacob Ruiz

@kathryn_kosmides Thanks Kathryn, glad you're loving Shotty!
Pedro Wunderlich
@_jacobruiz After using it for a few hours, what I'd love to see if a button to let me move all screenshots to the trash, or individual screenshots to the trash. Screenshots, in my case, are for use and discard. It would be a huge time saver to get rid of 20 screenshots at the click of a button. Otherwise, love the product. Great job!
Jacob Ruiz
Maker
@pddro Great feedback, this is something I'm looking into.
bradtheappguy
Really Cool! I just wish there were an option to have it open right after I take screenshot so I can drag it straight away to another app with one less click.
Jacob Ruiz
Maker
@bradsmithinc Great feedback. I considered this in early designs but decided it might be annoying. Going to keep this in mind :)
Kyle Dumovic
@bradsmithinc @_jacobruiz Make it a setting!
Ryan Hashemi
Awesome product. Just curious though, how does this differ all too much from using settings to create a default Screenshot folder path on your desktop in which all your screenshots get saved? It seems like most people who are frustrated by the mess of screenshots are unaware this is doable, but it is, and is very easy.
Jacob Ruiz
Maker
@ryanhashemi Thanks Ryan. Shotty is designed to be a super simple way to make screenshots accessible quickly from anywhere, with virtually no set up.
Brian Kaplan
@ryanhashemi @_jacobruiz (Semi Related question) Can you perhaps add a default listening folder preference for screenshots? I just downloaded your app and it's currently looking at the desktop... And I have my screenshots routed elsewhere.. However Shotty isnt finding them. :( I'd love the ability to use shotty and have my screenshots stored in a folder off the desktop.
