SnagIt 9.1 – A complete screen capturing solution

With SnagIt, you can capture ANYthing you see on your computer screen. You can set it to capture designated regions, windows, a full screen, scrolling windows, and brief videos. As they proudly say – “If you can see it, you can snag it


You might be wondering why you should be spending on something which has a free alternative available. But it is not just the capturing part it handles, you can even Edit and combine those captures, Share them online like on Flickr, Organize and find them again later.

SnagIt 9.1 – What makes it special?

The image editor included in SnagIt 9.1 is more powerful than ever before and offers a plethora of tools / images effects to make your screenshot images look more professional. Ease of use is another thing which impressed me a lot. Even though the quality of screenshots taken is very professional, the tool as such can be used easily by any amateur.

  • Office 2007 Ribbon Interface – SnagIt’s interface resembles the MS Office 2007 programs like MS Word and PowerPoint. If you are familiar with MS office related programs, using SnagIt will be very easy, else it will take some time to get fluent with SnagIt.


  • Profiles – There are 10 Profiles available: Region, Window, Full screen, Scrolling window (Web page), Menu with time delay, Text from window, Record screen video, Images from Web page, Web page (keep links), and Object.


  • Screenshot Manager with Instant Search – With SnagIt 9.1, you will never have to worry about saving or losing your screen capture images because everything gets saved on your hard drive automatically the moment you hit the print screen key. It even remembers the name of the application where that screenshot was taken


  • Live Preview – The new Live Preview feature lets you see what Snagit 9.1’s editing options will look like before you apply them. All you have to do is mouse over the option in the toolbar, and you’ll automatically see how the feature will make your image look – no clicking required.

This is by no way a complete review of this amazing screen capturing utility, but rather a small brief up on its features. SnagIt 9.1 is available for download on Windows 2000, XP, Vista systems though the Mac version is still in the works. A single user license of SnagIt 9.1 will cost you $49.95, a free trial version is also available.
