Snagit is one of my very first companions when I started blogging last 2009. I use it every time I do software and web app reviews. Before it, I’ve already tried some screen capture programs but I didn’t like most of them since they are too basic for me.
When I found out about Snagit through some online reviews, I was hesitant to buy it at first since I’m not fond of buying software programs (I’m a freeware fanatic). But then, there’s something in me that wanted to try it so I decided to purchase my very first licensed software app. And it was actually one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
Snagit saves me a lot of time and effort. Aside from being a perfect all-in-one screen capture app, it also comes with a great annotation tool that lets you edit your screenshots and put some texts, arrows, or highlights, in just a few clicks! Perfect for reviewing apps and adding comments on the picture.
Snagit – Awesome Features
One of my most favorite features of Snagit is the All-in-One which lets you capture the whole screen, a region, a window, or a scrolling window in just one-click! This is really great if you’re undecided which part of the screen you’re going to capture.
Want to add some awesome effects to your screenshots? Well, with Snagit Editor, you can easily do that in just a few clicks.
Stylishly delete unwanted pieces of an image by removing vertical and horizontal sections. Add a background image to fill the gap, or make it transparent. You can also make your image look as if one of the corners is folded over for an eye-grabbing effect. Pick from one of the preset page curl options, or create your own.
Once you finished editing your capture, you can easily save it to your preferred format then share it with friends via email, upload to Screencast.com (with free 2GB of storage), or publish it to your website via FTP.
I just hope that they’ll include direct share to Facebook or Twitter on their future updates.
Snagit also knows that it’ll be quite difficult to organize all your screenshots after a long time of using it that’s why it’s good that Snagit has the auto-tagging feature that lets you search for your captures by date, website, application, or a custom flag that you create and assign.
Even now that I’m already working, I still use it every time I need to capture anything on my screen. All my laptops have Snagit installed and the only thing that’s missing now is an Android app.
