When you took a snap shot I noticed that it reversed the snap shot (take a look where your sound board is). Why is that, and does it flip it back during the processing. Nice video.

Is there a similar product for ChromeOS?

Been using camtasia for years and just invested in Snagit.. well worth it, great tool and I’ve learned some new tricks from you today.. thank you!

Simple to understand Review.. Thanks!

I've used Snagit since version 1.0 and still have not used all the capabilities. Every day I am online, I use it multiple times. Version 19, released this week (October 23) is the best yet! I urge everyone who has it to upgrade ASAP and always get the maintenance agreement. I can hardly wait to see your review of Version 19, @Steve Dotto :-)

Hi Steve, I've been using Skitch. I like it because of the Evernote integration. But you're more a fan of Snagit?
dottotech (1 month ago)
Snagit does more. I actuyally keep both, if I am grabbing for Evernote I use Skitch, everything else (including video emails) Snagit

Thanks, Steve!
Very useful. video, I used Snagit only for capturing images, there is so much more that. can be done! Thank you.

I had been using Screenpresso but I will give Snagit a try. I love Camtasia.

Hi Steve a magnificent tutorial, thank you. A question for you are you able to attach a pdf to a snagit video and send to clients. I have been using YouTube videos to do this with a pdf attachment but after watching the power of snagit those days are over. Thanks again.

It seems to be a good tool Steve but wouldn't you say that it is more than what most people need for a screen capture tool? I thought it was you that introduced me/us to Awesome Screenshot awhile ago. Been using it ever since. Simple to use and it works as a browser extension, nothing to install on any OS! I just tried looking for it in your past videos, but I don't see it anymore. https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/

I use Snagit on a daily basis. It's an excellent tool. Also for productivity as I tend to take snapshots and show them on another screen instead of printing on paper.

SNAGIT is the only tools that I bought. Must have.

Hey Steve! Snagit is a great tool for teachers. I taught our language teachers how to use the FREE extension (back in the day; sadly that's gone) to record feedback for student essays. They would put the essay on their screen and while recording, do any highlights and markup necessary while speaking at the same time. The students LOVED it. Thanks for reminding me about Snagit.

Good video. Any chance you can do a video of Snagit alternative software which are free or cheaper?
Khun Kru (1 month ago)
$49.95 + Optional $12.45 for Maintenance Sorry. Too expensive. What it does can be done with free or with cheaper options.
Used the software for ages, yust purchased it thanx to you, thanx!

Very interesting. It would be very helpfull if you could explain the diferences between Snagit and Camtasia Studio. Thanks
MrGheller (22 days ago)
Snagit es captura de pantalla en esteroides. Camtasia es un software para editar videos que es famoso por su screen casting. Camtasia es competencia directa de Screenflow.
Peter Combs (1 month ago)
Good video, we've used Snaggit now for four years...inexpensive, versatile and easy. Also many updates during the year, the Scrolling screen capture is something fairly recent, we use it all the time now. Maybe at some point do a video on VSDC video maker, it's free and works extremely well and has a lot of options for the brave to try.

Hey, Steve...if there was ever an app near and dear to my heart...it's SnagIt! When Bill Hamilton (founder of TechSmith) first launched SnagIt (then Windows-only) I was the co-owner of a company that was privileged to promote it worldwide. TechSmith is one of those rare-breed homegrown companies that you simply fall in love with because they care. They cared about their employees, their customers, and they wanted SnagIt to be the best of its kind...I think they've certainly succeeded, especially to have weathered the competition for all these years. I think Bill's daughter now runs the company, but I'll bet he'd be proud that I still have (and use) an old turquoise-colored coffee mug he gave me back then. That mug...just like his company, has withstood the test of time. Bill, wherever you are, I still think of you with my morning coffee!

i used Snaggit for years but now I am using an iPad Pro and let’s see what I can do. I do a screen capture by pressing the power button and the home button at the same time. I can then click on the small copy at the bottom left. It opens and I can now edit that image. Drag the edges to crop it. Use the Apple Pen to write on it. There are options for performing other actions. Most of the things that Snaggit does. I can make a movie of my window by finger dragging from the upper right corner and clicking on the movie button. Then returning to my window and the iPad begins making a movie of everything I do. This enables making an instructional movie of my FileMaker Pro files. I can make movies of anything and then share them with YouTube, Twitter, email, and on and on. The iPad is so amazing. If only I could find a database I can create on it that is as good as FileMaker... None of this lessens the value of Snaggit on Windows since there is nothing comparable to the iPad in Windows.
Charlie Arehart (1 month ago)
Actually, Jack, windows does indeed offer screenshot and and recording features. But tools like snagit and camtasia simply add features far beyond what built in tools do. Each must decide if those add enough value to warrant the purchase price.
joetylerdale (1 month ago)
Steve, you have to do a tutorial on Snagit!! Most only use 10% of it, it is amazing.
joetylerdale (1 month ago)
So glad you did this episode! Snagit is a 10! The power in it is amazing. Yeeee-Ha! Thanks Steveo!
Pete Blok (1 month ago)
Steve Great stuff as usual. I've been using snagit for years. Not only for personal data captures but for information to my students and colleagues. I haven't used the personal video message but after seeing yours I just might start using it. Great idea. Thanks. Pete

hi Steve, I have been using Snagit basic features for a few years and find this software very useful. Your video made me realize that that I was missing out on a lot of features this software offers. Again, thank you.

Nobby Kleinman (1 month ago)
SnagIt is brilliant. One of those must have tools. Have used it since it first came out and would be a day goes by I don't use it. The problem with capturing so many images to store is that I can never remember what I captured or when so need to scroll all the way through to find it and that may be over years. I'd like to see tags so I can store it for easy retrieval - sort of like Evernote! Give it a tag and brief description because who really knows why you captured it in the first place! :D
Just 4U Travel (1 month ago)
I Love snag it - been using for years. Once in a while, I need to send a screenshot for business. I can show my customers where their cabin is on a ship or location of the a resort with notes and arrows. I get a lot of comments , it makes it clearer to customers. I should learn more about video use.
Stacey Luster (1 month ago)
Paid proprietary software...no thanks. I do enjoy your videos though Steve. They are well spoken and focused. Nice work.
Thomas McKay (1 month ago)
Same as Innovative Journaling. Long time user of Snagit but used only to capture informational videos. I still have a lot to learn now that I have watched you presentation.
willie gluck (1 month ago)
Been using Snagit for years, as it's one of the approved-for-use programs at my employer. Mostly I use it for simple or scrolling screen captures, but sometimes for instructional videos or for webinar captures. Two suggestions I have for TS, 1. Include a feature to highlight the cursor as it moves on the screen and 2. for webinar capture it would be convenient if there were a timer settings so that it could end a capture session at a given time or in x minutes. Keep up the great work!
Carmen Nooner (1 month ago)
Not something I would use, but fun to watch. Amazing the number of creative tools there are available to those like you who find something like this business friendly. I don't even have my camera accessible, intentionally. If I was younger and still a working woman this could come in handy!
ohbobpleez (1 month ago)
Every 2 years I pay a 2-year maintenance agreement on Snagit it updates quite alot. I've had it since year 2000-ish. On videos I have the microphone off so it captures system audio only. 90% of my use is capturing images though not video. When I capture video I select-save it as an .mp4, and .jpg for an image. I don't seem to have video with text.

Hi Steve... I confess I was initially thinking, "well what can this offer that I can't already do for free on my Mac?" Then your demo started... and I went from Hurmph? to Oooooh!! I've clicked your link and I'm going to trial it. Have to admit it looks pretty useful!
Jackie Lubeck (1 month ago)
Hi Steve - this is my second watch and I’m subscribed. I am teaching an online course to 25 people and I would love to be able to send personal video images. So let’s say I ask them to each send a set of 15 photos on PowerPoint with captions (course in ABC audio visual in Gaza Strip) and then I want to say and show 1) look this one is not in the right place and (2) not a great caption (3) think about a background colour... these kinds of things. Will snag it let me do that by video message> to show a set of photos with my voice giving notes. Also how much does it cost because we are an NGO and we might be able to afford this as a teaching message to a place we cannot get to (as Gaza is under siege) so we do a lot online... but this sounds like a useful thing. Hope you can advise.

It is around $50 and I do think it will work for you the way you described.

Innovative Journaling (1 month ago)
I have been using Snagit with Camtasia for years. It's an awesome tool but YOU, STEVE, have just made it more awesome. Here's the thing about you... YOU help people like myself use software more fully and completely and get much more benefit from it. HOW ABOUT doing a Snagit training and exposing all the features and uses of it? BTW... still waiting for that return ping you promised. Also, Camtasia is so easy to learn that in a couple hours on a Sunday afternoon I learned basic video editing, including how to zoom in and out and do animated lower thirds. When I started I had never done any editing at all.
MrGheller (22 days ago)
In your opinion, Camtasia or Screenflow? ....and why? Thanks!
Charlie Arehart (1 month ago)
+RemediosNaturales.es the differences are about each tool's primary purpose. Snagit focuses on capturing screenshots (think, a picture of the screen), which can then be edited/marked up in powerful ways. It can also now capture videos, as Steve demonstrated. Camtasia instead focuses on capturing screen recordings (think video of the screen) and)or video from a camera, with many powerful tools for editing/marking up and packaging such recordings. The difference between the tools used to be more clear (screenshots vs screen recordings) but each tool has added a little that the other does--while each still does many things that the other does not. Love both tools, and always enjoy seeing Steve talk up such classics as well as newer or lesser-known tools.
Innovative Journaling (1 month ago)
Snagit is the souped up screen capture software that integrates with Camtasia the video editor. Both are products of Techsmith. Hope that helps.
RemediosNaturales.es (1 month ago)
It would be very helpfull if you could explain the diferences between Snagit and Camtasia Studio.

Sorry, been so caught up! But thanks so much for the kind comment! I will try an follow up, this week though is a gong show!!!
Again a very amazing video. Please Steve, don't retire. 60 is the new 40, no reason to go. You are very important for the world. Thank you and best regards from Cyprus.

I've used Snag-It for years. The product gets better and better each release. The engineers in Michigan are awesome and helpful if you need help. They make other great products as you mentioned (Camtasia). They are one of the most unaware software companies.

Geeks on Tour (1 month ago)
I love Snagit and have used it for years, but I know I only use a tiny percent of its capabilities. Thanks for giving me some ideas. Every time I use it, I think, "I wish I could take a full-on class on Snagit" I love the Techsmith company - we attended their "Screencast Camp" in Okemos, MI years ago. I looked for "video message" and don't find it in the Windows version :-(
Justin Heckman (1 month ago)
Snag it is great tool! used it for years still use on windows. If Im on my mac not so much but Snagit/Camtasia combined is a great combo. I utilize Screenflow for Mac.
MrGheller (21 days ago)
+Justin Heckman Thank you for the answer, Justin. I do know Screenflow is not available for Windows. If possible, I would like to know *why* do you prefer Screenflow on Mac over Camtasia?
Justin Heckman (21 days ago)
+MrGheller I have used it (Camtasia) on mac too, I just like ScreenFlow better so I utilize it on Mac. ScreenFlow isn't available for windows.
MrGheller (22 days ago)
If I may ask, why not Camtasia for Mac? Thanks.
DEfan (1 month ago)
I'm old so I have to ask a question as I see one pop-up...Why was the image shown in reverse? Your mixing board and sign are now on the right and you can't read your sign because it is backwards. Tell me you don't have to flip them with every shot taken. Thanks.

Avrum Golub (1 month ago)
Eye-opening, Steve! Is Snagit suitable for 1 to 7 minute "tips of the day (or week)" or is ScreenFlow a better tool? Thank you and a Joyful Thanksgiving.
Avrum Golub (1 month ago)
Thank you, Steve. Screenflow will be a better choice for our business. Snagit, then, appears to be a "Vidyard Go-plus".
dottotech (1 month ago)
It can, but you cna;t do the editing and composition work, it is not a "screencasting" app but a screen capture app with some editing. Screenflow is still much more!
John Prazan (1 month ago)
I’ve been using an old version of snagit for probably 10 years or so. Never thought of updating it but now that I saw your video, I will! Any idea how much it costs? Thanks for the video!

+Jan Do you have a link? Is it still available? Thanks for the tip.

just earlier (about a month or two ago) humble bundle had snagit the latest and camtasia 2017 (just pay $100 for 2018 upgrade) and it only cost me $15

I checked: it's around $50 + $12 yearly for upgrades etc.

Eric Prouzet (1 month ago)
Personally, I'm calling him "Guru" Steve. He even has the beard...
Eric Prouzet (1 month ago)
Thanks for the tip. I will definitively give a try as it seems to be an excellent additional tool for creating pictures and videos. Do you need to have Camtasia to access their cloud space where they store the videos and create the web link?
Eric Prouzet (1 month ago)
Finally, you don't need it: I've installed the free trial and it creates an account on Techsmith, where I suppose videos etc. will be stored.
dottotech (1 month ago)
I don't think you need Camtasia, but I ma not certain (as I also have Camtasia)
