SnagIt is a comprehensive application that helps you capture your screen activity. It works both as a printscreen creator and a video recorder.
The program comes with a modern and easy-to-use interface, designed for quick access to image and video capture commands. Unlike other tools, this utility doesn't provide a main window spread on the largest part of the screen to block your view; in other words, there's no need to minimize it every time you use the app. Instead, you find it small-sized, floating on top of your working area, ready to expand its one-click options when you need them.

As I already mentioned, SnagIt overcomes the limitations of classical programs. With this remark I refer to its ability to capture images of the screen, no matter whether you are dealing with fix regions, free hand areas, dropdown or cascading menus, multiple areas of the screen, active windows, or the entire desktop.

Once the print screen is taken, the capture opens in Snagit Editor, where you can preview and edit the capture. Besides ordinary features, such as cut, crop, trim, resize, and rotate, the program provides exhaustive editing functions, which cover a wide area of drawing tools, image styles, and effects. One of the greatest functions of all is the capacity to export the resulting image directly to Microsoft Word or PowerPoint. In addition, you can save it to an internal library, email it, or share it online from within the app.

All in all, SnagIt is a reliable tool for image and video capture. What's more, it comes with a powerful editing tool that enables you to enhance the pictures and create shareable image files.

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.
