The only problem with taking screenshots is the cluttered Desktop background which can show up in the image.
You can clean up the Desktop, of course, and drop in a background that matches the screenshots, but there’s an easier way. Add the free Backdrop app to your Mac and control the background image or color as needed without bothering to clean up and remove files and folder clutter from the Mac’s Desktop.
How Backdrop works is easy. Install it. Setup the Preferences by adding a background color or image.
Select how the background is displayed.
When you take a screenshot or a screenshot of a Mac app the background from Backdrop is displayed instead of the Desktop wallpaper image with the typical clutter of files and folders.
Backdrop can be used on Macs with multiple displays, works with Spaces and features a Pixel Test mode to test your display for bad pixels.
Now it’s easy to control your Mac’s screen background color or image for screenshots without disturbing your Desktop background settings.
Not bad for free, right?
