SnagIt 9 makes sceen shots as glamorous as they'll get, letting 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.

Version 9 completely overhauls the interface to bring the wide range of editing tools and effects to the surface with a simplified, icon-oriented menu structure that makes SnagIt even more flexible and easy to use. Tools to draw, resize, recolor, and annotate the images are there, as is a menu to add rollover hotspots for linking an image to a URL.

SnagIt 9 also adds automatic image-tagging, a library for saving and indexing every capture, and an image tray for getting to the most recent opened captures. Balloon tips, wizards, and an online video tutorial make it simple for beginners, and its sophisticated capabilities will satisfy advanced users.

"quick and easy to use."

March 03, 2009  |  By mariposita35

 |  Version: SnagIt 9.0

Pros

no problems with downloading,loading and running. Clean interface

Cons

If all the software on your PC not just OS is a microsoft package then it should dove-tail well but for those of us using open source applications you'll find it extremely frustrating that you can't change the "open with" defaults.

Summary

i dont really know yet because we havent tried it.

"Excellent and very useful app."

September 21, 2008  |  By Globalartichoke

 |  Version: SnagIt 9.0

Pros

Pretty much allows me to screen capture from any application I need.

None that I've come across.

Pretty much allows me to screen capture from any application I need. I really like the ability to automatically capture text from drop-downs or scroll box.

"Bloated, but okay for taking single screenshots"

September 11, 2008  |  By PJ_

 |  Version: SnagIt 9.0

Pros

Has lots of screenshot editing controls/settings

Cons

Very, very slow and bloated. Uses a lot of RAM.

Summary

If you want to take single screenshots and don't mind the bloat, this is good. I prefer the cheaper and faster AutoScreen, though, especially because it's designed to take screenshots automatically.

"Best screen snapshot program"

September 04, 2008  |  By netshape28

 |  Version: SnagIt 9.0

Pros

To me, I think this product is the most simple to use and most useful with all of its features. Once you take a snapshot of your computer screen, you can edit it with the editing features it provides you with. It can record video too. Great product.

Cons

I didn't really see any cons on this product. I don;t know why this new CNET Download page won't let us leave the cons message blank.

Summary

Great video and picture capturing tool. Video quality is average, but that's because TechSmith makes Camtasia. The picture taken with this product is amazing. Not only can you take a picture of your screen, but you can edit it once you take it. This is a great product for making tutorials, demonstrations, and your own personal videos/pictures. Skip the other products, use this.

"There's a free alternative"

August 23, 2008  |  By galets

"Do NOT upgrade till the new version has debugged"

August 21, 2008  |  By Arash

 |  Version: SnagIt 9.0

Pros

I like the OLD version

Cons

In the NEW version, "Send capture to application" produces errors repeatedly.
The new version does NOT support right to left languages in the text entry.

Summary

Old versions do the job better.
New version has ample bugs and inconsistencies.
We pay to evaluate a bugload of "NEW' application.
The new version still does not provide an easy way to capture menu and sub_menu unless every time you spend tweaking and change.
It HAS TO, but does NOT understand when a user has a child menu active hence invoking Capture makes the Menu and Sub_menu disappear. I have had SnagIt for many years, but the stupidities of this program is only seconded by the Company's greed. I won't buy upgrades, and I do extend the same alert to others.
There's no support. I have been waiting to receive any response ever since I paid for last version a month ago.

"Best I've seen"

August 01, 2008  |  By cropperjim

 |  Version: SnagIt 9.0

Pros

This is the best and most useful copy program I've ever seen. I teach and often take screen shots and annotate them in PowerPoints. This works great for that. The capture of a scrolling window alone makes it worth it.

Cons

I would prefer not to have toolbars automatically installed all over creation. But I just disable them and all is well.
