Overall Satisfaction with Snagit

We began using Snagit in our department after several team members had raved about the free version. We obtained a license to use its additional features shortly after. I previously had tried Lightshot and Snipping Tool. Those worked well enough for basic screen grabs, but they didn’t (at the time) have the ability to take scrolling captures, cut out middle portions of images or take videos. When I began using Snagit, it was a game changer for image capture. It allowed me to work quickly and efficiently. It took the place of several tools - since I could take video, add markup and text and make edits (crop, cut out, blur) all in one place.
  • Video capture - the countdown feature is great so you can set the scene. And you can convert to a gif and easily copy and paste to an email or messenger app.
  • Markup - easily blur areas, crop, cut out (in the middle of images), add text, add arrows or boxes around areas and much more.
  • Scrolling capture - allows me to grab images that span several scrolls to get everything in one image.
  • Image merge - I wish there was an easier way to merge two images in one.
  • Scrolling capture - even though this is one thing I love, sometimes the text gets wonky when I use this feature.
  • The shortcut - this feature feels super unnecessary. And it can be annoying when every time I move my mouse to the right of the screen it pops up.
  • Video capture and conversion into gif
  • The ability to quickly use edit and save images
  • The image library which saves every capture ever taken
  • It has allowed us to save money by using one tool across our department (previously each person used their own tool, often, expensing is on the company’s tab)
Snagit is much more robust than either of those tools. Both of those were very basic screen capture tools—no frills, no advanced features. They allowed me to grab a screen and make minor changes to it. We used a separate tool (Loom) for video capture. With Snagit, it does everything we need in one tool. We love the scrolling capture feature since we are frequently working with large/long documents and May need to capture a long area of text that doesn’t all fit on one screen. It makes our lives so much easier!

Snagit is one of those tools that has many purposes - from personal to professional to educational. I think it would be suitable for any scenario in which someone would like to capture images or videos, mark them up, make edits and easily save and share them. I’ve used it primarily in a professional capacity but I’ve also recommended it to others for personal use as well.
