Editors' Review

Calling TechSmith's SnagIt a screen capture tool is a bit like calling a Swiss Army Knife a knife. Yes, it's first and foremost a screen capture tool, and a very good one at that. But SnagIt offers a lot more than free gadgets that also capture screen images. In fact, it's much more of a graphics toolkit optimized for capturing and using onscreen images and information than a screen grabber. SnagIt is advanced enough to enhance productivity for business users and other professionals, but it's also easy for home users to start right up with. If you regularly copy images, Web pages, and screen views to save, embed, share, and use in other ways, SnagIt is well worth trying. It's free to use for 30 days.

The first thing we realized when we downloaded and opened SnagIt is that it offers a lot of options, even during setup. SnagIt includes specific add-ons and output tools for each Office application; choosing the custom installation option let us keep from installing features we don't use. A Disk Cost counter tracked the space SnagIt used, too. The next thing we noticed is that SnagIt comes with lots of help, especially when you click "I'm New to SnagIt" when the setup wizard finishes. A video tutorial, online manual, and simple yet intuitive interface make SnagIt easy to pick up. SnagIt not only offers multiple ways to capture screen images, Web pages, and other data and elements but also to use your captures, such as the built-in SnagIt Editor, OneClick operations, SnagIt Printer, and various output profiles. There's even a freehand option that lets you draw your selection. A system tray menu let us quickly access SnagIt's features and settings.

There's an old cartoon in which a wee lad has just downed five or six ice cream sodas. He says to the man behind the counter, "And now I want to thank you very, very much." The look on the guy's face sums up how software makers feel about the sweat of their brow. SnagIt offers a lot more than just a vastly superior screen capture tool. It's worth the price.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Snagit 11.0.

"where are my files?"

October 13, 2013  |  By sw1jms

 |  Version: Snagit 11.2.0.101

Pros

good basic program but....

Cons

I cannot find where they keep the video on my computer which to me is very important. There is no information to show where they are in Explorer anywhere that I can find.

Summary

It is a shame as this has potential.

"With every update the Mac version gets worse"

September 30, 2013  |  By MacUser1212

 |  Version: Snagit 11.2.0.101

Pros

I used to love this tool and recommended it to everyone as my favorite Mac tool. Now I have to find another product for screen captures.

Cons

Every time TechSmith updates the product to a new version functionality gets lost. Just look at this thread in their Help Community: http://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/where_are_my_arrows There are 44 comments and they never solved the problem.

Summary

Don't buy Snagit for Mac!

"Bloated and unfriendly, life is easier without it"

September 02, 2013  |  By MarkBiomedical

 |  Version: Snagit 11.2.0.101

Pros

cute name, catchy sales pitch

Cons

Right from the start, you are in a video library of help, every tiny task you want to do has a video. Instead of being intuitive, it is like you purchased an airplane and have to learn to fly.
The most basic and obvious feature, screen capture and edit is so bloated and unfriendly I have no time. Much faster to not use this software.

Summary

Uninstalled, remove all files

"If I knew then what I know now...."

March 24, 2013  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: Snagit 11.2.0.101

Pros

Free trial. Moderately useful program.

Cons

Scrolling capture didn't work for me, that's the main reason I tried Snagit. I made the mistake of not making a new folder for it when I downloaded it, and it filled my Program Files with loads of stray files that remained after I uninstalled the program. Most of these I could only tell from the date in their properties. Worse still it left an enormous number of registry keys, so I had to spend a long time on regedit deleting keys for Snagit and Techsmith.
