Snagit is the Rolls Royce of screen capture software, it’s one of those rare unmatchable products which is just head and shoulders above all else on offer – it’s Snagit first and daylight second.

Both myself and Dave have been using Snagit for many years to, among other things, create screenshots for our DCT articles. Snagit’s overall feature-set and its range of editing and annotation tools are unparalleled – and this very latest version sees the introduction of even more enhancements and features.

What’s new in Snagit 11

  • OneClick – Quickly capture what you need, when you need it. No matter what program or browser you’re using, Snagit OneClick stays on top of your current window – always available when you need it. Get instant access to image and video capture tools, hotkeys, capture profiles, and the Snagit Editor. Always ready when you are, OneClick lets you instantly capture anything on your screen.
  • Video Capture – Easily create screen videos for demos or quick reviews, and share them with anyone, anywhere. Plus, Snagit now records system audio automatically, so you’ll be able to capture sound from your computer, such as a YouTube video, during a recording without any extra effort.
  • New Stamps – Highlight and emphasize important parts of your screen captures by using newly designed stamps that make you look more professional.
  • Centered Canvas & More Zoom Options – When your capture pops up in the Snagit editor, the canvas now automatically creates a border around your image, giving you plenty of room to add annotations, arrows, and other effects. And with more zoom proportions, you’ll be able to edit your images to the exact size you need.
  • Easier Resizing & Paste from Clipboard – Whether you resize by pixels, inches, centimeters, or percentage, it’s easier than ever to edit the size of your capture. Simply copy and paste from within Snagit, and the canvas will automatically resize to the right size for your capture.
  • Spell Check – Never misspell a word in your screenshot again. Snagit will tell you what you’ve spelled wrong and help you make callouts without any mistakes.
  • New Outputs & Sharing Options Save, share, or send your image and video captures to anyone with a variety of outputs. Easily send your image captures to the usual lot, or now share to Facebook, Twitter, and Evernote too. When you’re done recording or capturing a screen video, you can choose to send your video to Camtasia Studio for editing or Screencast.com, YouTube, FTP, Facebook, or Twitter for easy sharing.

In a nutshell, the new Snagit 11.2 is specifically enhanced for speed and ease of use.


Of course, you still get all the genius of Snagit’s mighty editor with its myriad of features and options

  1. Thanks for the chance to win the latest version of Snagit. Have used an ancient version of the programme for years and would love to upgrade.
    I have learned so much from reading Daves Computer Tips, keep up the good work!

  2. Snagit has been around for a long time, and i used to love it years ago. Would like to get re-acquainted, with the latest version. Thanks for all your great contests DCT.

  3. I’ve used Snagit for years, and it’s one of my top, must-have, utilities whenever I acquire a new computer. Rather than print orders, receipts, error messages, etc., I capture them with Snagit and have the information available for any need. The editing functions continue to increase and make this a truly remarkable tool. Thanks for the chance to upgrade to the latest version at no cost!

  4. Another GREAT giveaway from Dave’s. Thank you for the opportunity to win this software. I’ve been using Ashampoo’s Snap. I have heard that Snagit is th best program for scrn captures. I would love to win a copy and see for myself.

  5. This is a great giveaway. I had been using Snagit it at school. No other screen capture utility can comparable better to this one. I hope to win one for my home use. Thanks DCT for this opportunity.

  6. I like Snagit for the following reasons: saves captures automatically and combines multiples ones, captures videos and text (but does not have OCR capabilities), has markup and annotation tools. There are also innovative features (tagging system…) you can not find in other softwares in this category. A must-have, especially if you want to create image or video tutorials.

  7. Snagit is the Rolls Royce of screen capture software.
    I will never have a real Rolls.
    So I would be glad to get this one.

  8. SnagIt is the best screen capture software that I have used. Sure would like to have the latest upgrade. – Thanks DCT – – – Shorto

  9. SnagIt is the true standard by which all screen capture utilities are measured. If you don’t win a copy, buy one. It’s that good.

  10. Hi,
    I use Jing, is a very simple and easy to use free tool from TechSmith.
    Surely, Snagit is more powerful and with more features than Jing, so i’ll be very happy if i win a license.
    Best Regards
