“Works great and when I reported a bug in the application the turn around time to release was just a couple days in total. Great support, communication, and the application is now my goto app for screenshots.”

-- KryptonianSon

-- Pandemic73

“We really have access to the layers in Photoshop, they are named and therefore we know quickly what they correspond: mouse cursor, dock, to the icons of the finder bar that can be disabled, wallpaper etc... this application is perfect and free some time ago you had to pay an app like Layers or other”

-- Dj William WiLD

“This app is a layered screen saver which has simplified my work a few times, so I recommend it because it works really well. I also work with Pixelmator, there is nothing wrong with it. Feel free to fill it!”
