I was introduced to Snagit (by TechSmith, also the maker of Camtasia) a while back and I have to say I am
snagged hooked. Snagit is a feature-rich screen image capture product that is just a bit cooler than your Paint application.
Snagit 11 could come in mighty handy in many ways. You can use it if you need to explain a problem you’re having in a clearer way, and it’s great for taking screenshots when you want to provide a step-by-step process or explanation, or simply take a screen shot of something for posterity.
Snagit’s “capture” feature lets you laser in and select items to copy, crop, and do a variety of things like instant email, save to a clipboard, save to your computer, send to PowerPoint and more. If you use the Video Capture, you can send your video directly to You Tube and Camtasia as well.
If you want to add a little flair to your capture, Snagit offers great tools like text boxes, speech bubbles, arrows, and borders. The highlight tool allows you to draw attention to any part of your capture you want to call attention to as well.
Snagit 11 runs around $49.99 if you’re ordering for the first time. If you are a current Snagit customer with a previous version, you can upgrade to Snagit 11 for a mere $24.95! I just upgraded from version 9 to 11, and I must say I’m impressed with the new features!
So if you need a full-bodied screen capture tool, or are simply tired of tedious custom and precise cropping, this cool tool is a must have … and also a lot of fun!
