Skitch is a clever little image editor that sits in your toolbar. Using either your inbuilt webcam or the screen grab mode you can pull images into the editor which you can then resize and crop as you see fit. There are also some other minor text and drawing tools too if you want to add something. There is a share option which pings the snap up to the Skitch website once their you've options to share your pic. As a blogging tool it's utterly invaluable, and for anyone who spends their day grabbing images of the web it's a must. It save hours as opposed to revving up Photoshop.
