📱💻 Capture screenshots to your clipboard, share them without making a mess
Traditionally, on iOS and macOS, capturing and sharing screenshots meant they had to pile up in Photos or on the desktop, respectively. But you can actually capture them directly to your clipboard, then paste them into most apps—you get all the sharing, none of the file mess to clean up.
iOS: As of iOS 11, when you snap a screenshot, a small thumbnail appears in the lower left. If you tap it before it disappears (saved to Photos), you get a basic set of editing tools, a share button, and a done button.
Edit the screenshot as you like, then tap the share button. You can send it to any number of apps, or just Copy the screenshot to your clipboard and paste into other apps like Messages, Discord/Slack, Pages, etc. The trick is: once you share or copy it, tap Done > Delete Screenshot.
macOS: There are two great keyboard shortcuts for taking screenshots, which are saved to the Desktop:
Command+Shift+3 to snap your whole screen
Command+Shift+4 to be able to drag a specific section to capture. Bonus Tip: Press Space after this one, and you can snap a specific window.
If you add Control to those shortcuts, the screenshot will be saved to your clipboard, not the Desktop. You might need two hands to hit Control+Command+Shift+¾, but it’ll save time cleaning up files.
