Many individuals require an excellent screen capture software to snag images, text or video off their browser or desktop. One of the best choices for this type of software is Snagit.

Developed by Techsmith, Snagit has the ability to capture and annotate still images for individuals that just want to keep an image on hand or create a tutorial. For years, the software only allowed a user to capture still shots, but it now has the ability to also capture video from websites such as YouTube.

While the software does have a number of editing features, it is not as complete as Techsmith's Camtasia Studio. For individuals that do not require all the bells and whistles, Snagit is an excellent choice for keeping or sharing images or short videos

Users have the ability to download other annotation tools if they like, and Techsmith has included the ability for users to download plug-ins and share their creations on websites such as Twitter, Flickr and Facebook.

Another great feature with Snagit software is the ability to capture text. If users have text that they want to snag an image of, the software will automatically detect the type of text and allow for export into a text editing program. This is ideal for users that want to quickly copy text from applications such as Notepad or Microsoft Word.

Snagit has many features for the individual that just wants to capture text or short videos. It has the ability to share those images or videos with other users on social websites and makes this an excellent choice for screen capture software.


  • Images can be captured quickly with just the click of a button
  • Intuitive and easy to use interface
  • Gives the user the ability to snag short videos
  • Easy ability to share on popular social websites


  • Features may not be sophisticated enough for professional users
