Overall Satisfaction with Snagit

We use Snagit when we need to mark-up and edit screenshots used for our technical documentation. Currently, we use features such as Cut Out, Shape, and Blur. We also use Snagit to create animated GIFs to demonstrate certain features that we are writing about. This offers us a simpler alternative to Photoshop while also allowing for consistent screenshots across all of our writing team.
  • Snagit offers a clear and uncluttered canvas on which you can manipulate images.
  • Snagit offers a clear interface for creating full-screen captures or GIFs
  • Snagit offers customizable tools for adding shapes or mark-ups to an image.
  • Snagit could refine the bottom menu bar where all of your open captures show. Or at least set them to close after a certain amount of time.
  • There are some features that are available on the Windows version of Snagit that are not available on the Mac version. Snagit could improve by bringing these over across operating systems. (One such feature is Spotlight.)
  • Snagit sometimes shows different sized shapes depending on the image quality in the original screen. This sometimes leads to confusion when different writers are creating images.
  • Creating Shapes on images
  • Creating GIFs from screen recordings
  • The Cut out feature
  • Snagit means our writing team itself can handle image creation for articles rather than having a dedicated team.
  • Snagit does sometimes cause confusion by showing one user certain size shapes or drawings when set to the same pt as compared to someone on another computer.
  • Snagit reduces the time it takes for us to create animated images for our documentation.
Snagit is a much more scaled down version of Photoshop. This was ideal for our team as we are not performing heavy image manipulation tasks. We only need to add a few basic mark-ups to images, which is something easily done with Snagit. This saves us both time and the effort it would take to learn a heftier tool such as Photoshop.

Snagit is great if you need to quickly add a shape or other mark up to an image. Essentially, very minimal photo manipulation for the purposes of technical documentation. You can also use it to quickly create screen recordings of certain actions or features, and you can later turn those into GIFs right in Snagit.
