Since I upgraded to Catalina on my Mac, screenshots only show as the desktop background

Recommended Posts

This wasn't happening before I upgraded my computer. Is skitch compatible with the new mac system? 

Anytime I try to take a screenshot, the image does not capture what's on my screen - it takes a screenshot of my desktop background instead. I've tested this on my computer and my colleagues' and can confirm it's only happening to Macs that upgraded to the new Catalina system. 

Please advise as Skitch is rendering useless right now.

Mine is worse. I'm on Catalina, Downloaded Skitch for the first time and it won't take screenshots at all.  I can import images and edit / save, but the rest, Nada.

 

Advice?

In the privacy settings of your Mac, enable evernote and Skitch for Screen Recording.

When I got to my settings and look at the screen recording section, I only have 2 apps listed I can give permission to and Skitch is not one of them, even though I have skitch downloaded on my mac. Please help! I need skitch!
