Over the past two decades, TechSmith has built their entire business around making screen sharing easy and convenient – they are THE experts. Snagit is Techsmith’s first and oldest product with version 1 being released 19 years ago. This past May, Snagit 10 was released and TechSmith proved once again that taking and editing screenshots like a pro can be easy and fast, even for those items that used to be difficult to capture.

Camtasia Studio users should already be familiar with all-in-one capture, and now this awesome feature is integrated with Snagit. Move your mouse around the screen and the area to be captured changes depending on what’s under the cursor. One click and you’re done.
Snagit now includes full support for alpha transparency. If your capture area has rounded corners, like floating windows, so will your final screenshot. You can also composite transparent images together using the companion Snagit Editor.
Other New Features
Capture text and formatting with Snagit • No more clutter showing behind Aero glass titlebars and windows • Direct upload to sceencast.com • New edge effects • Auto-scroll capture enhancements
