Snagit is a screen capture tool developed by TechSmith and was released in 1990. It was originally made for Windows PCs; however versions have been developed as well for Apple Mac PC users.
The print screen function is not new to people with computers, however the main difference of having SnagIt 11 is having the means not only to capture photos and have them saved on file without you having to remember to do so, but also the feature of being able to capture videos and record system audio automatically.
The latest version even has a spell checker that can be used when adding text to images. Special effects are also included to add to its special features, such as having the ability to crop and rotate images, as well as have grayscale images, and add frames and borders to photos.
SnagIt also has a timer feature that is very helpful when you want to make sure all you need is captured on your screenshot. It can even capture drop-down menus and other Windows menus so you ensure that all you need to show will be seen by your intended recipient.
In this era of social media, SnagIt 11 is also fitting to use as it is able to share photos and videos to Flickr and YouTube respectively. You can also use this to upload your captured files to your blog, own website, or even just have it attached to a message or to an e-mail.
Others may find it hard not to have a ‘revert’ and detailed video-editing features; however the other capabilities of this software can definitely make up for all that is not in it.
In a nutshell, this program is very easy to use, has very helpful advanced features, and can definitely boost productivity. It’s a very versatile and flexible product that may have everything you possibly need.
