Overall Satisfaction with Snagit

Snagit is used to explain technical things and provide easy-to-use validation of information on screen. The ability to customize the screen shots (highlights, arrows, text, ovals, etc.) to focus on the important aspect makes it a great value. It reduces the cycle time for getting information across.
  • Screen shot editing
  • Cropping of graphics
  • Ability to annotate graphics with layers
  • Customizable borders to provide visual context (this is part of a screen, a whole screen, etc.)
  • It would be helpful to have an easier way to cancel an inadvertent screen shot
  • Default saving location should be able to be set
  • Auto-update doesn't always work
  • Overlays and ability to move objects (e.g., graphics boxes, arrows)
  • Automatically saving graphics and history
  • "Tear sheet" cropping of images provides context
  • It's not easy to identify the exact ROI, but it is inexpensive enough to know it is positive.
Native screen shot (snipping tool) is fine for basic screen shots and minor annotation. Snagit requires less time and does not need to have the images separately saved to have them be particularly useful.

Snagit is excellent when we need to show something on a screen. It allows for quickly focusing on the important aspect of the screen with the ability to also blur sensitive or irrelevant information. I often will draw ovals or squares with drop shadows around parts of the screen that I need someone to focus on.

It's not great if you just want a graphics editor or plain screen shot grabber. There are free programs that do that, but not with the fast, easy editing of Snagit.
