If you take screenshots of apps on your Mac then you know the problem. It’s the background image. Sometimes app windows are overlaid on other windows or the Finder. Sometimes there’s screen clutter that needs to be removed.
There’s a better way to take screenshots with any color or image as the background.
Screenshot Helper is a free Mac app which creates a full screen window on your Mac that sits behind whatever app window you want to capture. You control the screen’s background color, or you can select any Desktop image so the background matches your objective.
It’s simple. Run Screenshot Helper on your Mac. It opens up to a blank screen, but gives you controls to change the background color or add a Desktop image as the background.
You can also drag the window to snap it to the edge of the Mac’s screen. And use keyboard shortcuts to show or hide the Mac’s Menubar and clock, or the screen pointer, or the Desktop icons.
Simple, elegant, useful, functional, and free. You can do much the same thing by changing the Mac’s Desktop background and minimizing the Finder window, but Screenshot Helper does all that and more.
