Overall Satisfaction with Snagit

We use SnagIt across our organization as our standard screen capture software. I use it as a senior technical writer for both capturing still screenshots and videos. We use the screenshots in our manuals, release announcements, and training. I also use SnagIt to record meetings with screen sharing being presented (such as product demos).
  • Captures selected portions of a screen.
  • Allows immediate editing of captured images and videos.
  • Allows video trimming.
  • Allows annotation/adding arrows, etc. in an appealing format.
  • Snagit does tend to crash occasionally - especially when I go to record a video.
  • Snagit also tends to crash when I am saving large video files.
  • Snagit does tend to freeze up when handling large files.
  • Increased speed of being able to create documentation due to the ease of taking screenshots.
  • Increased quality of screenshots.
  • Increased interest in our release announcements now that we can record and add short videos.
We started using SnagIt instead of Windows's native snipping tool. People were originally using the snipping tool to take screenshots and then editing them in PowerPoint or Paint. SnagIt provides a much more seamless ability to go from taking your screenshot to editing it using tools specifically designed for enhancing screenshots. Plus, you can capture videos with SnagIt while you cannot with the snipping tool.
SnagIt is my go-to tool for taking screenshots of our guides. I would absolutely recommend it for taking screenshots and for adding things like highlighting, text, and arrows to these screenshots. It's also excellent for recording short videos. The one area where it's maybe NOT the best tool would be for recording meetings. SnagIt really isn't meant for this, I don't think. I think it makes more sense to use recording software that is bundled with your meeting software to ensure you capture the best audio quality.
