Taking screenshots on a PC can be a bit tiresome. Both OS’s have implemented their own system, with Windows only just announcing a slightly better print screen option. These allow you to take a screenshot and save, with Snipping Tool allowing you to hand draw a circle, which for businesses doesn’t look professional. Snagit 2019 is here to solve this problem for everyone. With Snagit 2019, you can capture your screen, edit it with annotations, and share it. It even allows you to record and share if needed.
The key point for Snagit is the plethora of tools that come with it. If you can see it on your screen, you can capture it. Using the mouse to freely select which part of the screen you want to capture. You can draw a rectangle to select the area, or the software will cleverly give you select options, like specific open windows, or areas like the toolbar in Excel.
As soon as you have selected the screen you can start editing it, save it or copy it to the clipboard. Editing allows you to match the colour palette and add a shape to hide an area on the screenshot. You can add arrows, lines, figures, dialogue clouds, text, labels, highlighters, and even blur effects.

You can combine images, allowing you to create collages and step by step guides. It also allows you to record everything that happens on the screen and save it as an MP4 file or as a Gif. Snagit offers the option of extracting text in the screenshots and exporting it to a text processing program such as Office Word.
You can then share the screenshot a variety of different ways, such as their own sharing platform, or to Dropbox and Google drives to name a few. This isn’t something for your Nan, this is professional software that should be used as such. For my job, I need to be able to grab a screen and annotate it easily.

Wtf? All you have to do is hold the windows key and press prtsc to take a screenshot.
True, I guess I more meant with Snipping Tool, you’d have to click prnt screen, select the area, then try and draw a straight arrow. Where as with Snagit, I can click Prnt Screen, select the window, then click and add an arrow.
