Screen snap in skitch is black

Recommended Posts

I just purchased the 1 year subscription and now this is how skitch takes screen snaps

I've checked privacy setting (all good)

I'm running mac BigSur 11.2.1

I use this program all day!!!!  Help!

I am not able to capture screenshot properly using Skitch (not sure released to upgrade of the Mac OS to Big Sur (ver 11.4). The output of the screenshot of the skitch is always the desktop background image instead of the active windows screen I was trying to capture.

I figured my issue out just now. I had the same issue.  This Big Sur update seemed change Skitch to just take shots of my background image behind what I wanted to snap. 

The fix was to go into:

System Preferences / Security & Privacy / Privacy / Screen Recording /
Then toggle Skitch off then on.  Be sure Skitch program is closed.   

This seems to reset it so Skitch has access to the screen grab.

Same problem as Adam Selzer here. The System Preferences fix did not work. The last time it worked properly was 4 days ago. No system updates at that time that I can recall.
