Techsmith Snagit ver. 8.0.1
Screen capture is the process of copying what you see on your screen. SnagIt captures various types of data in dozens of different ways, enabling you to capture, edit and share anything on your screen. To help you start using SnagIt, here are five popular ways SnagIt is used to capture what is on your screen.
What's New In SnagIt?
SnagIt’s New Design
You’ll notice we’ve incorporated a new look into SnagIt 8, as well as design changes, based on some simple goals. We’ve used icons to take a visual approach to the capture process, making it easier to identify what you want to capture, yet keeping the workflow the same as always. Just select a profile or your favorite capture settings, and click the Capture button. So if you’re a longtime user, rest assured that the familiar capture options are all still there, plus some great new ones to make you even more efficient at performing your daily tasks with SnagIt.
Smarter Editing of Objects and Text
With SnagIt’s powerful Editor at your fingertips, there’s no need to open another application to add the finishing touches to your captures.
SnagIt 8’s Editor has been enhanced to include vector editing, so the callouts, arrows, shapes and text that you place on your capture remain editable. You can reselect any object you’ve previously placed on the capture to delete or edit it anytime. Save time making your images look exactly the way you want them to, the first time.
Later, you can come back and modify those images for different audiences, or update them with new information, without going through the hassle of taking additional screen captures.
Capture Web Pages with Links
Now you can capture a Web page with SnagIt and all of the links remain clickable. Use SnagIt to capture the part of the Web page that has the links you want to keep intact. Then, save the capture in a format that supports embedded links: Web page with image (.mht), Adobe PDF, (.pdf) or Macromedia Flash (.swf). The links will be embedded in the capture and clickable, just as they were on the original Web page. Send the capture by email and simply indicate where to click.
This new feature saves you the time and trouble of copying and pasting links, and it allows you to guide people to exactly the right spot.
Add Interactivity to your Captures
Your screen captures can be more engaging and informative if you add interactive areas to them.
With SnagIt’s new hotspot feature, adding interactivity is easy. Capture an image, and then use SnagIt’s hotspot feature to specify parts of the image that, when moused over, will display text or images, or when clicked upon, will open a Web page. Add helpful hints and explanatory illustrations, or even create a functioning prototype of a Web page.
Because textual comments only appear when hovered over, the entire image doesn’t end up cluttered with text.
Save as PDF
Save as PDF (image)Now you can share your captured images in the universally accepted format – PDF. No need to worry whether people can open the images you’ve sent them. The PDF format is perfect for saving and printing scrolling Web pages. You can also go paperless – capture your onscreen or scanned documents, and save them as PDF files.
