The Snipping Tool is Good, but a More Powerful Tool is Snagit (August 4, 2020)

Yesterday, I posted about the features of the Snipping Tool and its usefulness, but today’s featured screen capture tool is even more powerful, even if it isn’t free. If you need a full featured tool that “snags” shots from your computer screen and allows you to edit them, then Snagit may be what you’re looking for. Snagit costs $49.95 for a single user license and offers a free trial before you purchase it. It offers mark ups with arrows, message boxes and allows you to create animated GIF’s from your captures. A useful feature is that it allows you to scroll down your computer screen in order to “snag” more than what the monitor shows. It has OCR capabilities that will recognize any text. This application offers an easy way to develop content with a professional look.
