Overall Satisfaction with Snagit

Snagit is being used by all staff members within our organization. I, being part of the IT department, use it to create step-by-step guides for staff, training materials, screenshots for reports and PowerPoint presentations. A majority of the staff use it when communicating with their customers to illustrate issues and/or changes needed on forms that the customers have filled out. They do also use if for grabbing screenshots for PowerPoint presentations as well as for their own reference.

Initially this was purchased because our only option had been doing a print screen, which would turn the selection into a bitmap file, which is not really editable. This product, SnagIt, gave staff a better and easier way to capture images (regions, scrolling pages, panoramic shots, and even videos) and the ability to add text to them, call-outs, image effects, black out/highlight areas, and blur--all of which was not doable with a basic screen capture.
  • Variety of screen capture types: region, window, scrolling, panoramic
  • Ability to edit the captured image
  • Ease of use for staff
  • Saves captured image into a wide variety of file types
  • With certain websites, sometimes the scrolling function does not to work the way it is intended and when that happens, I simply have to switch to panoramic instead.
  • Hitting the print screen key opens the screen capture utility but I would like to see it open up to the capture selection type instead.
  • More robust presentations, documentations, and training guides have been created
  • With the cost factor being so minimal, the amount of time and effort it has saved me when creating documents has more than made it worth getting it for all the staff to use.
  • Staff feel more empowered and creative knowing how simply they can grab a screenshot and make some changes to them without having to get assistance from the IT department.
We had looked at PicPick and ShareX, both of which are free. PicPick had a GUI that was not as user friendly to edit the images with and lacked options of what can be done by the user. ShareX does not have a user-friendly GUI even though it did seem to offer a lot of options. Overall, when we had some of our more savvy users try them out, the overall consensus was that they found SnagIt to be easier to use and understand.

Snagit is perfect for those who create guides, instructions, PowerPoints, and any other presentation or document type that needs to have images included. Snagit is even able to do video capture, even though they have a separate product (Camtasia) that allows for more in-depth video capture and editing abilities. This package is simple enough to use and doesn't require a powerhouse system nor computer-savvy people to use it.
