Five reasons Snagit is one of the best screenshot programs.

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.

Here are some of my favorite features of Snagit:

  • All-in-One Capture – Capture your entire desktop, a region, a window, or a scrolling screen.
  • Panoramic Scrolling Capture – Take a full-page, scrolling screenshot. Snagit makes it simple to grab vertical and horizontal scrolls, infinitely scrolling webpages, long chat messages, and everything in between.
  • Grab Text – Extract the text from a screen capture or file and quickly paste it into another document for edits. Easily copy information without retyping all the text.
  • Screen Recorder – Snagit’s screen recorder lets you quickly record yourself working through steps. Or grab individual frames out of the recorded video. Save your video file as an mp4 or animated GIF.
  • Annotations – Annotate screen grabs with professional markup tools. Add personality and professionalism to your screenshots with a variety of pre-made styles. Or you can create your own.
  • Step Tool – Quickly document steps and workflows with a series of numbers or letters that automatically increase.
