It appears that Evernote, with today’s release 2.0 of Skitch, has eliminated or dumb-downed most of the functionality of the application – especially the ability to save private direct links to images made by screen shots. I have – and I believe many writers on this forum – have been using those private links in [img] tags in posting.
I’m looking for recommendations to replace Skitch for this purpose. For example, TinyGrab could be a possibility if they’ve overcome their old missing links problems. Though their blog hasn’t been updated since Feb. 2012 … which could be a bad sign.
It appears that old links at skitch.com will still be valid … for a while … though in time I suspect “missing image” holes will eventually show on this forum and others.
I’d stop linking to images before I would go back to TinyGrab, but that’s another discussion. I switched to Captured for all my screen grabs after switching from TinyGrab and I could not be happier with it-works great. It’s $3.00 on the MAS-link to the Web site.
I’ve also been very pleased with CloudApp, although I usually use it to upload documents. It will handle screen captures also.
Seems like the stinklyonion bot is having a hard time parsing posts today.
I have just removed our artificial friend and his posts.
Aww… I was supposed have dinner with stinklyonion this Friday.
And then another bot comes along and takes its place. Same MO as the others-4 quick posts, wait 2-3 days, 4 more posts, and repeat. They appear to stop after 5 repetitions/20 posts.
Here are 2 more, here and here.
Removed. I guess we’ll have to block Yahoo email adresses again.
