Screen capture tool Snagit arrives as beta for Mac

updated 12:20 am EST, Wed December 16, 2009

Software can annotate, share screen captures

TechSmith has launched a beta version of its screen capture tool, Snagit for Mac. The current version can capture screenshots from the desktop, a window, a region or a scrolling widow -- viewing beyond the screen borders, either horizontally or vertically. It offers button-click and hot-key captures and allows for timing delays as well. All captures are automatically saved for later recall.

Snagit offers several editing features, allowing users to preview the capture, add call outs and draw arrows or lines. Users can also blur or erase portions of the capture. The annotation tools are customizable for fast recall of preferred styles. The Snagit beta can also share captures via e-mail, while users alternatively can transfer files using copy/paste or dragging.

The beta has an automated software-update mechanism, with updates expected every 30 to 60 days. The software works with Mac OS X 10.5.8 or 10.6.1. The beta is free to use and the official release price has not been announced. For reference, the PC version of Snagit costs $50.

    Even Mac Screen Capture won't do that. Copyright images and all that.

    I use snaggit on the PC, and it is damned good! We build training manuals and videos (or even explanatory bulletins) and the software lets you capture images, add text, highlight specific areas...

    ...and it is very simple to use.

    Needles (sic) to say, I am downloading the beta!

    Perhaps you need

    I used this software, very good, but I have a similar software and this, even more than this feature, This screenshot software is released newly. With it, you can edit your screen snaps as you like. By the way, I like its freehand capture and freehand drawing.
