If you need to deal with creating images by capturing screen for your day to day work or anything else, then Snagit is a essential software  which is needed for creating some great images for your work. Thanks to Techsmith, we are giving away few licenses of Snagit to Avinashtech Readers.


Developers Description

More than just simple screen capture, Snagit empowers you to communicate faster, clearly explain concepts, and archive digital information. All with point and click convenience. You can easily capture, edit, share and organize a screenshot of exactly what you see on your screen.


Top capture features


Snag anything, on the fly. Grab your entire desktop, a region, a window, or a scrolling window—all with a single hotkey or click.

Combine images

Create custom graphics easily by taking multiple captures and putting them together.

Spotlight and magnify

Draw attention to a specific part of your image. Just select the portion you want and Snagit will blur and darken everything else.

Markup tools

Add effects to your image, even if you don’t have a design degree. Draw attention with arrows, add a text callout or torn edge effect…just to name a few.

Top sharing features

Once you have your capture ready, you can do just about anything
with it:
* Save it in your preferred format.
* Share a URL or embed it in your blog via Screencast.com.
* Add it to your Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, MindManager or OneNote page.
* Publish to your website via FTP.
* Send it through email, AIM, Flickr or Skype.

Top organize features


All of your captures are automatically saved to your Library with the most recent viewable all the time. Save time by quickly finding all your past captures.
Library keeps all your captures organized and findable


Along with saving your capture, Snagit also stores information so you can find it again later. Search for your captures by date, website, or a custom flag that you create and assign.


I use Snagit for my day to day Blogging work and its a learning experience for me often. I will often find something new which is possible with Snagit and I never thought about it. Its a complete screen capturing software with good enough built in Editing tools to give you great flexibility to manage your captured images.

You can do almost everything with Snagit starting from capturing Image whether its a web-page, big or small, or you need to scroll or a part of screen, or full screen or a part of menu or  apart of menu coming after a click, watermarking it, resizing it, scaling it, blurring it and much much more. I have not used any other tool after I started using Snagit and I use it almost everyday. (Thanks to complimentary license provided by Techsmith).

You can also use Snagit to  create time lapse video of your Desktop activity over a period of time (Frankly speaking I knew this just now while testing it).

Give Snagit it a try.
