SnagIt Editor's Review

Capturing, managing, and sharing screenshots is a lot easier with TechSmith's SnagIt.

SnagIt can be used for capturing multiple sources such as active windows, scrolling windows, text from windows, WebPages, DirectX sources, DOS screens, digital camera images, and any on-screen activities. The output files vary from a large variety of graphic files, PDF file formats to printers, clipboards, files, e-mails, catalogs, FTPs, instant messengers, or programs. 

One thing that I liked a lot was the possibility to create profiles where you can define the input type (window, full screen, etc.), the output type, and add different effects to your captured content (edge effects, watermarks, color depth, resolution, etc.). 

SnagIt allows you to process your captures. To help explain your images, you can mark them with standard or custom annotation shapes such as arrows, logos, call outs, text boxes, rubber stamps, captions, sticky notes, or frames. The image catalog browser and image converter allows locating, viewing, and managing all of the captures and multimedia files in thumbnail view. SnagIt makes it a lot easier to edit previously placed objects, capture embedded links, and add interactivity to any captures. 

Pluses: SnagIt can be used to take screenshots of entire Web pages, DOS-screens or DirectX sources; output files vary from JPEG to Portable Network Graphics (PNG) or Adobe PDF. You can convert between a large array of image formats. Addins for Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Internet Explorer. 

A very nice feature of SnagIt is the possibility of downloading and installing output accessories such as PowerPoint Output, Word Output, MindManager Output. All these add-ins allow you to send captured content directly to other applications with just one mouse click. 

Drawbacks / flaws: 

In conclusion: SnagIt is simple enough for beginners to use, but powerful enough for those who need to batch-process captures, output to multiple formats, or grab irregular screen regions.
