Snagit is a tool that you can use to easily take a snapshot of your screen, edit it, and then send it to a specified application or website.
It is designed for users with any experience level, as you can clearly notice when initiating the software. Two video clips are available in the Snagit Message Center, for both novices and power uses, to learn how to get acquainted with this software utility.
The Snagit interface (which is user-friendly and attractive) is mainly divided into five parts - menu bar, quick launch, related tasks, profiles, and profile settings.
Use predefined profiles or customize them
By using this program you make it possible to choose one of the basic capture shortcuts called Profiles - all-in-one, full screen, copy to Clipboard (with or without preview), web page as PDF with links, free hand, or menu with time delay.
Below the aforementioned section you can change the profile settings for a capture - mode and input, output, and effects. Once you have configured this, press the “Print Screen” key or click the red button. A selection tool that crosses the screen appears, so you can easily choose the part of the screen you want to capture, by using the click-and-drag method.
Built-in editing options
In the Snagit Editor you can apply touchups to your captures, organize and share them with your friends. In addition to that, it is possible to batch convert images, assign flags (e.g. important, idea, personal), use the library to organize captures, use canvas, add callouts, arrows and stamps, and more.
You can easily get lost in this software. Its user guide and video tutorials are wonderfully built. On the downside, the Editor takes a while to apply effects.
All in all, Snagit definitely deserves to be taken into consideration, whether you already know how to use this type of program or not, seeing it does not put a strain on the computer’s performance. Moreover, we did not encounter any errors or crashes in our tests.
