Editors' review

Capturing screenshots may not be glamorous, but at least SnagIt makes it simple. SnagIt lets you capture any part of your screen, from a partial image to the entire contents of a scrolling window. You can grab images of Web sites and software applications or pictures from scanners and digital cameras. You even can capture video and record screen action in AVI format.

Editing tools let you manipulate and enhance captures using effects (such as Brightness, Hue, and Saturation), filters, and borders. You can add arrows, substitute colors in the captured image, or create dark or light backgrounds with a single click. Version 8 adds several interactive features, such as saving Web pages with HTML links, adding hot spots and rollover states to objects and areas, and exporting files in SWF and PDF formats.

This program outdoes itself in features, so figuring out the menu structure may take a while, but the GUI additions in version 8 are a welcome addition. Unfortunately, the latest update is just as slow to start as the last version. Even with its package of powerful options, we found SnagIt flexible and easy to use. Balloon tips, wizards, and an online video tutorial make it simple for beginners, and its sophisticated capabilities will satisfy advanced users.

    "Not for the above average user"

    September 14, 2014   |   By Goodtimebyall

    Version: Snagit 12.2.0.1656

    Pros

    None that I can list.

    Cons

    No option to select location of install OR where the captured information is streamed too.

    Summary

    This is strictly for the small time user. I have terrabytes of storage on my NAS. But Snagit has NO options for sending the capture data to any where BUT the C:\ drive. I need a program that will allow me HOURS of conference time. And my C:\ drive is NOT the place save it.

    While I am not "power windows user", I am still much more than you average user. But the only way to change the location of where the capture data is placed to muck around with NTFS junction points. And this is not something I want to do with my main working PC.

    On would think that this being the 12 version, they would have worked an option for this.
