Screen capture tools are dime a dozen, but TechSmith’s SnagIt does not fall under this category. This screen capture software is priced at a hefty $50. In return it offers some features you are not likely to find in any other screen capture tool.
Snagit can capture any region of the screen, a window, text from a window and even a scrolling window in it’s entirety. Additionally it can save all images from a webpage.
Snagit comes with a built-in image editor using which you can directly apply all sorts of effects like drop shadows, spotlight and other nifty tricks. Snagit also has a neat collection of various annotating tools like arrows, markers, speech bubbles allowing you to add comments to the screenshots. It’s pretty much a complete screen capture and image editing software.
I still feel the price is a bit outrageous for a screen capturing tool. That’s why I took advantage of this promotional offer, which is going to continue till June 5, 2009.
