Editors' Review

by   / May 31, 2014

Snagit for Mac lets you easily capture screenshots and videos anytime you need through the app's intuitive interface. The compact controls are always available on the side of your screen, and you just have to select the kind of shot you want, and you're good to go.

Pros

Handy controls: Anytime you want to access Snagit for Mac, all you have to do is hover your cursor over the right-hand edge of your screen, and the compact control panel will pop up. From there, you can either select photo or video and go from there, or you can open up the app's main interface window for more options.

Integrated sharing: After you've captured and edited your image or clip, you can export it in several different ways straight from the app. For instance, you can upload a video to YouTube, post it to Facebook or Twitter, or email it to a friend or colleague.

Editing tools: There are tons of editing tools in this program, many of which are designed to help you make top-notch video tutorials or instructional videos. You can add page break effects, manage shadows, crop images, and add text bubbles in a variety of shapes and sizes to help you convey exactly what you need to.

Cons

Text bugs: When we tested the text bubbles, they didn't always produce writing that was of a legible size. No matter how large we made the font in those instances, the writing remained tiny. However, leaving the image we were working on and starting over eliminated the problem.

Bottom Line

Snagit is an intuitive tool that can help you take all kinds of screen shots for personal and professional use. It's free to try for the first ten image saves, and if you'd like to keep using it after that, you'll have to pay $5.99 to upgrade to the full version.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Snagit for Mac 3.0.
