Capture many images


Clarify makes capturing screenshots simple and fast. Use the capture button, keyboard shortcut, or status menu (Mac) or toolbar icon (Windows) to quickly capture images.

The Clarify capture tool even has advanced features:

  • A countdown timer which is great for capturing menus, drag operations
  • A capture region history which lets you quickly capture multiple screenshots that are all the same height and width
  • The option to capture a region or a window
  • The option to include or remove the mouse cursor in your captures

In addition to capturing new screenshots, you can also drag existing photos or images onto your Clarify document to import them.

Each capture becomes a step in your document


Clarify has one important difference that sets it apart from other screen capture applications. When you capture images, you aren't just saving individual image files, you are creating a document. Each image you capture becomes a Step in your document. You can reorder, insert or delete steps as you create your communication.

Add annotations and text


All the tools you need to mark up your images are right inside Clarify. Add arrows, boxes, circles, highlights, text boxes and blur out sensitive information. All of your annotations are non-destructive so you can go back and edit them at any time.

Clarify's image editing tools also let you resize, crop, add additional padding, and add picture frames or borders.

Add text


Since Clarify is part screen capture tool and part text editor, you can add text to each part of your document.

Share and export your document
