    "The install crashed Chrome."

    January 22, 2014  |   By sf_jeff

    Version: Snagit 11.4.0.176

    Pros

    Who cares at this point??

    Cons

    I was in the middle of a bunch of important activities using chrome and the snagit install decided to just take matters in its own hands and shut everything down without asking permission. What? Did Microsoft buy them?

    Summary

    Not trustworthy.

    "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 2, 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

    "Useful and easy to use"

    April 29, 2013  |   By assign1234

    Version: Snagit 11.2.0.101

    Pros

    >Easy to use
    >Good image and video capture

    Cons

    Could only find options for limited formats of video-MP4

    Summary

    Useful and easy to use but would have been nicer to have had support for more video formats.

    "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.

    "Install wiped out previous Firefox session."

    March 21, 2013  |   By alittleknowledge

    Version: Snagit 11.1

    Pros

    Haven't tried it yet.

    Cons

    Install wiped out previous Firefox session-restore previous session button on FF homepage didn't do it. So ticked off at that that I haven't tried it yet.

    Summary

    Install seemed to go reasonably smoothly & didn't take an unreasonable amt. of time, though on the 1st try install hung after all the files were downloaded. Kingsoft Antivirus found a file it said was suspicious-it had something that malware always used to launch itself with. Sorry for the lame explanation-I'm feeling really sleepy & undercaffeinated.

    Anyway, I'll post again after I try it.
