I have been using Techsmith’s Snagit screenshot program for many years. One of the biggest reasons is so that I don’t have to type as much. Often, when I need to reply to someone, it can be a complicated description of a process or steps to follow. Instead of typing all of that out, I take screenshots and annotate them with arrows, text, shapes and more. My clients love the screenshots I send them in response to their questions. Images with arrows, steps or text are much more effective than 2 paragraphs of text.
I originally found Snagit when searching for a screenshot program that could do a scrolling window. I wanted to be able to showcase websites we’ve done with clients, and the best way to do that was to show a screenshot of their homepage as part of the case study. But capturing that screenshot can be a tedious mess. With Snagit, you click one button and it does all the work for you.
You can get a free trial of Snagit right here. If you are currently using the default Print Screen functionality on your PC or Mac, PLEASE take the time to try this software out. You will love it!
