SnagIt is a very powerful screen capture tool that comes packed with all the features and functions you could possibly need from such tool. It is very comprehensive and handy, being capable of taking screenshots as well as capturing the screen activity to video files.

The image capture possibilities that this application offers are truly impressive. It allows you to capture any area of the screen, may it be a region, an active window, the full screen or variations of these options, and save it to an image of various formats. A lot of file formats are supported, including the most popular ones like PNG, JPG or BMP. Even advanced parameters of the output file can be configured such as the image quality. Then, you can set the application to automatically share the taken screenshot in various ways. You can quickly e-mail the image, post it on social networks like Facebook, or save it in the internal library. The library lets you easily search among the stored images, and the auto-tagging capabilities make the searching even more effective and easier. Furthermore, there’s a surprisingly powerful and comprehensive image editor that lets you manipulate and modify the screenshots in numerous ways.

When it comes to video capture, SnagIt doesn’t offer additional editing functions by itself, but it allows importing the videos into the powerful Camtasia Studio application for more thorough editing and management.

Even though it’s very comprehensive, using it is easy. Its interface is self-explanatory and intuitive. Moreover, it can automate the screen capturing and sharing tasks by letting you use predefined profiles or create and use your own.

To sum it all up, SnagIt leaves no room for complaint. If, at first, its price might seem to look a bit high, trying this tool reveals that most of its price is completely covered. I recommend it with all my heart.

Guest Install seemed to go reasonably smoothly & didn't take an unreasonable amount of time, though on the 1st try, the installation hung after all the files were downloaded. Kingsoft Antivirus found a file it said was suspicious: it had something that malware always used to launch itself with. Sorry for the lame explanation, I'm feeling really sleepy & under-caffeinated.
