Snappy is a Mac app that gives you a keyboard shortcut (⌘⇧2) to take a screenshot and pop it up in a frameless “picture in picture” style window you can drag around. I use it on a daily basis to screenshot designs as a reference to use while I’m coding. It also offers lots of useful controls like opacity, resizing, and the ability to hide the window shadow for pixel-perfect positioning.
