TechSmith Snagit allows you to capture anything on your computer screen, including specific portions of it, individual tabs, videos, and images. With Snagit’s built-in powerful editing and customization features, you can then edit anything you have captured to your liking. Using old feature-lacking convoluted methods to capture your on-screen content such as “Print Screen” will be a thing of the past after using TechSmith Snagit.
After downloading TechSmith Snagit, it will run in the background so it does not disturb you when you don’t need it. When there is an area of the screen you wish to capture, simply open Snagit and specify the portion of the screen that you are targeting. This is made simple by clicking and dragging the borders provided by Snagit’s interface.
You can also easily select specific windows or tabs and the borders will auto-snap to them. You can easily choose whether it is a video or image you are saving. Finally, you can set where you would like TechSmith Snagit to store these captures. Save them to your computer, copy them to the clipboard or use Snagit’s powerful editing features that we will go into more detail about below.
When you are recording a tutorial or doing something that requires your input, you can easily adjust TechSmith Snagit’s settings to record any of the following: your microphone, webcam, or system audio. You can remove your cursor afterward for a cleaner look. You can even grab text straight from images, allowing you to share it with others or even replace the text with something else. TechSmith Snagit stores everything you capture and automatically organizes it so you can easily edit things later on and not lose track of your captures. Let’s take a look at some of Snagit’s post-production features that will blow you away.
TechSmith Snagit’s editing and post-production features are what really make it stand out. Snagit features fully-fledged professional photo and video editing abilities. You can pair this with TechSmith Camtasia to get the ultimate video editing combo, but for most users, Snagit alone should get the job done. Once you have captured your content, you can add annotations and a plethora of stamps and graphics provided by Snagit to further describe or enhance your screen captures. Highlight sections of your videos or captures to make them stand out and trim out parts that you don’t need.
Techsmith Snagit provides the ability to remove a section of a screenshot and automatically stitch together the other pieces and resize the image appropriately. You can also drag on-screen elements to other positions while automatically blending them in to appear as part of the original screenshot. No more opening complicated third party software that makes simple adjustments more difficult than they need to be!
The bottom line is whether you are an educator recording video tutorials, an employee who needs to share on-screen content with the team, or just a casual user who needs to send the occasional screenshot, TechSmith Snagit has got your back.
