SnagIt 10 is the latest release of TechSmith's professional screen capture program. SnagIt essentially replaces the native print screen function within the Windows operating system and adds many more features.
SnagIt is aimed at those who need to capture information from their screens and want a lot of powerful functionality as well such as the ability to capture small regions, web pages that scroll beyond the bottom of the screen as well as having the ability to annotate the information on the screen.
SnagIt 10 runs on Microsoft Windows 2000 or later, requires Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, 1 GHz Processor (2.4 GHz is recommended), 512 MB RAM (1 GB Recommended), 60 MB of Hard Drive space.
TechSmith originally started out in 1987 as a custom software company that developed for the Windows platform. Responding to a demand for screen capture utilities, the company created SnagIt in 1991. Over time, SnagIt offered some video capture capabilities and these, in turn, became Camtasia in 1999. The current version of SnagIt, 10, was released in May.
SnagIt enables Windows computer users to capture anything they see on the screen. You can then edit and combine those screenshots and share them via email or by using your favorite applications, like Microsoft Office.
With SnagIt if you can see it you can capture it. Depending on the mode that you use it in, you can capture a small section of a screen, a whole window, multiple windows or a whole scrolling webpage. There are eleven preset buttons that let you target what you want to capture, whether just a region, some text, or the whole enchilada. You can even create your own custom presets.
So what is new with SnagIt 10?
• All-in-one capture – will let you snag anything as you see it and all on the fly. You can capture your desktop, a small region, a window, or even a scrolling webpage. It can be captured with a single hot key or a click. Now instead of having to select the type of capture that you want beforehand, you can just capture.
