Editors' review

Snagit is a powerful screen capture tool that offers more than the standard built-in options with most versions of Windows, all while allowing a greater deal of customization and editing after you've snapped your images. It's a perfect tool for anyone who regularly compiles tutorials or creates reviews of Web sites or software.

Pros

Exceptional range of customizable tools: Snagit offers a number of powerful tools, including hot key commands, customizable screen range and capture setting, and even smart-lock to determine what part of a screen to capture. You can snap a window, a form in a window, and even a menu drop down for that window, all with quick settings that appear from the software's drop down.

Edit and save images quickly: Every image you snap goes to a central folder, but at any time you can open an editing interface that allows you to crop, resize, rotate, or otherwise edit images before saving them in the format of your choice. You can also see exactly how much space is being used by these images, and cycle through the different dates on which you capture images -- all in a very smooth, streamlined interface.

Cons

Can be overwhelming for basic tasks: If all you want to do is capture an image on the screen, the Windows 7 and 8 snip tool is probably plenty for you. Snagit can feel a bit overwhelming in some settings, throwing videos, help tips, and excess menus out, even for basic tasks. That, along with the somewhat intrusive quick bar can cause problems if all you want are some basic screen captures.

Bottom Line

For power users who frequently need to take specific screen shots, Snagit is a great tool and worth the price after your 30-day free trial expires. Check it out.

    "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.
