Just when you thought it could not get any better, the Techsmith team has made improvements. They released SnagIt 8.2 today and it has some sweet new features. We use SnagIt almost every day and this is a program that we could not live without.
Some of the features include like Vista and Office 2007 compatibility. Not that we will be upgrading anytime soon, but it is nice to know that SnagIt has us covered if/when we do upgrade ;).
Also, you can send you screen captures directly to another application. So, if you are working in Word and need an image, you simply open SnagIt, grab the image and send it back to Word. Very nice. Don’t get me wrong, we LOVE SnagIt. But sometimes it was a hassle grabbing the image, saving it to the desktop, opening the target application and importing the “snagged” image. I am certainly not complaining because that process was WAY easier then anything else. But now it is smooth as silk. Love it!
Plus, hot little callout styles have been added. We use the callout function when getting web site redlines from clients. It makes the whole revision process much easier.
If you are not yet a SnagIt user, hop over to their web site and download the trial version. You will be grabbing screen shots in minutes and will be as hooked on it as we are.
