Snagit logoYes folks, the wonderful people at TechSmith have kindly donated 5 licenses for the brilliant Snagit 11.2 for us to give away to our subscribers… competition ends 7th April
This is the very latest, recently updated, full version of Snagit which would normally sell for $49.95us. You can win one of the 5 free licenses simply by submitting a reply to this article with a comment. *We’d prefer if you commented on the Snagit software.

*If your comment does not appear immediately it is because first comments need to be moderated, it will appear shortly!

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. This is what I’ve been needing for my presentations. I have been slaving away finding ways to do this manually.
    Hope I’m one of the lucky winners!

  2. As for Snagit, it is difficult to be original : it is the best in its category. So I want to say that I appreciate
    very much the help in profusion one can find in the official website. It is really very clear and very useful.
    Congratulations for that help and to davescomputertips.com for that great giveaway !
