I simply could not work as productively without SnagIt from techsmith.com. I use SnagIt daily for various tasks and image captures for various outputs like tutorials, articles, documentation and much much more.
I can even perform quick image editing tricks using just their built in Image Edit instead of firing up Fireworks or Photoshop.
And it is all for under $40 US. They are also a great bunch of people.
From their press release this morning:
"What's New? Increase your productivity with SnagIt 7.1! With the newest version of SnagIt, you can send your screen captures to more places, embellish your images with better effects, and greatly improve your work flow with SnagIt's many enhancements. Work quicker, work smarter - with SnagIt's essential new features. To list just a few . . .
Thank you Techsmith for keeping on producing and innovating SnagIt and Camtasia!
