The first thing the user notices when working with Snagit is the extensive editing capabilities. The program can do little less than editors that are specifically designed for material processing and can not be used for capturing. The ability to compete with the functionality of modern editors is already enough reason to pay attention to Snagit.

More about Snagit

The main promoting chip for the program was the ability to record calls in programs such as Skype, Google Hangout, and others. This is an extremely handy feature for those who make video calls not just to see acquaintances. Video tutorials, valuable memories and just useful information that wouldn't hurt to save all this the program can give.

The wide possibilities of the editor make Snagit practically a program for editing. The set of functions that can be applied to the captured video is limited, but for primary processing this is more than enough.

Advantages of the program:

  • Creating screenshots. With such a simple task Snagit copes with excellent. You can make a screenshot, selecting an area on the screen for it, and then edit it in a fairly detailed editor.
  • Recording video calls (or audio calls). Snagit records everything with sound, has no time limit - making it a simple tool for recording video and audio calls.
  • Webcam recording. It is for this feature that many prefer Snagit over its analogues. Not all software has a special function for recording from a webcam, and this feature is very necessary for many video blog owners.
  • The ability to download web pages in PDF format. In this format you can process any page, no need to deal with downloading, creating multiple screenshots and other activities that precede editing.
  • Snagit isn't finished yet. What you see, as a current user of the program, is just the beginning, the developers plan to continue working on the software to make it even better, more functional, more useful on the background of competitors.
  • Many changes are introduced for free, by automatically patching the version you already have.

Snagit can be your perfect "partner" for studying or just videoblogging. It's unlikely that you'll be able to do very complicated blogging with this program. A serious video blogger or someone who makes money creating guides online would be better off with something more expensive, but if these activities are an occasional hobby for you, this is a great option.

Screenshots are a minor feature of Snagit. Nevertheless, the program can offer a lot of ways to edit them, which is very useful when creating guides and curating other people's work. If you're a supervisor or occasionally busy working on explaining something, you can use the program to create visual aids.

You should try Snagit if you:

  • need screen capture features at an amateur level;
  • want to record a webcam with sound;
  • are planning or already creating a variety of instructions with screenshots;
  • would like to save some video and audio calls - as memories, a benefit (e.g., video tutorials), or a convenient recording format;
  • looking for an average editor.

You can use Snagit for most everyday tasks and it will handle them just fine, but if you need more, you'll have to wait until the software is ready.
