I wanted to share my thoughts about a tiny but VERY powerful screen capture tool (and yes, that description DOES NOT do this this lil' program justice) TechSmith's award winning 'Snagit' !
Yes, as you may have guessed it is *surprise* the fitting and capable name of a screen capture and much more software program that allows the user to effortlessly capture whatever is on their screen and also issue a large assortment of editing tools in the process.
What's more, this "little engine that can" program also has the added bonus of being able to utilize callouts and stamps to communicate effectively, and also help create decent webcam recording via capturing video content on the same screen. TechSmith's website has numerous streaming vid clips to show how one can get the most out of this great little screen capture tool too.
I must say, upon trying to download my own screenshot of Snagit, my graphics PC was starting to act up and so I had to take a screenshot with my phone. Ironically I didn't use the awesome Snagit program that I am right here telling everyone about! ;)
Oooh, and before I comment on the 'Dislikes' (which there aren't really zip) Snagit also has a great new feature where a user can create their own animated .gifs!
I am still intensly trying to learn all I can about it in the time I can allow during TechSmith's free trial period, as the one somewhat major thing I do dislike would be the price tag of this product, usually around such rather diverse prices such as $20 buck to almost 50 bucks! Wait for coupons/specials!
Yes, the price tag my be the only realy thing holding this fine program from being tried out and possibly purchased more.
Again, not much else to say that hasn't already been heaped upon Snagit as far as praise goes. Definately evaluate it via TechSmith's trial just to be sure if you really want to purchase it and a rather higher than normal price. However, I have seen quite a few online sites with specials in which the price for even the most recent version (12.2.1) is comparably more affordable.
Like my recent review of MapDiva's 'Artboard', Snagit is absolutely great when having to rush and work under the fly regarding capturing special background images for special streaming webcam conferences and if one needs to touch up anything, the added editing photo tools are a lifesaver working under the gun!
