A Guidemaker With Rooms to Grow

What do you like best?

StepShot takes the hassle out of creating a step by step guides using screenshots by automating the screen capturing process. The traditional ways of doing things are preparing to take a step, prepare the screen capture application, capture the screen, edit the image, save the image, rinse and repeat for the next step. But StepShot will automatically turn every click of the mouse into a screenshot. It means that users can go through any process that they need to share without having to go back and forth between the apps. And at the end of the process, a set of screenshots is ready.

What do you dislike?

The user interface, at least on Mac, can use an upgrade to a more modern look. The image editing tools can also be improved with more options to fit different personal aesthetics. Some users might want to be able to choose the type of arrow that they can use, while others might want to get rid of - or adjust - the shadow that automatically appears under every element.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you create tons of step by step guides, you won't go wrong with Stepshot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The app cuts the time and effort needed to prepare step by step guides. It takes some getting used to at first but when you get the hang of it, StepShot can be a lifesafer.

I like this software so much

What do you like best?

I do enjoy the possibility to export my guides in different formats (like DOC, PDF, single pictures, etc.). Also, I like the possibility to export a final version of a document directly to WordPress. And I can't help saying that I admired by tools for operations with pictures (like blur and sequence).

What do you dislike?

At first, this software seemed to be very heavy to my computer, but then I noted too many opened tabs of my browser. So when I closed them all things with StepShot was absolutely OK.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this software for different kind of businesses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team and I use it for writing internal guides and technical documentation.

A great time-saving tool!

What do you like best?

I'm not a tech savvy, so the process of a new software onboarding is often painful. Not with StepShot Guides though.

It has been quick and easy. I've already saved a lot of time and hope to save much more.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it's impossible to export to Word but guys from support told it's on their roadmap with Pro version. Can't wait to test it

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with their free trial first. It will allow to evaluate how suitable this software is for your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using StepShot to create how-to guides. I regret not having it during my CS role in Namecheap Inc. My work with it would have been much more efficient, I suppose.
