SnagIt Version 9.1
- Go with the flow-How do you want to snag? Are you all about capture-capture-capture? Capture-edit-capture-edit? Or a simple capture-send? However you want to do it, SnagIt now plays along. The old, linear workflow is gone. You can almost taste the freedom.
- Combine images easily-SnagIt makes it easy to combine images. Just drag-and-drop screen captures from the new Open Captures Tray onto the canvas. That's it!
- Save nothing...save everything-SnagIt now stores every screen capture automatically. Don't feel any pressure to name the capture or decide where to save it...until you're ready for that kind of commitment.
- Find your stuff- If you can remember even one detail—like the approximate date or the Web site you captured—you'll find your capture with a click. SnagIt keeps track of these details, so you don't have to.
- Get organized (if you want to)-As you capture images for next month's big project, tag them with "big project" or set the "Important" flag. No need to save anything in folders...just come back next month and view all your big project files with a click!

I used SnagIt v8.2 for nearly 3 years and I thought it was a miracle tool. I was able to capture photos, error windows, screenshots, video screen images, etc. Many of the things I captured could not have been captured by any other way in Windows. I never did learn to use more than 25% of the program's features but the few that I did use were invaluable.
I downloaded the trial v.9.1 last month and based just on the features I typically use, TechSmith must have been reading my mind! In the earlier version every time I created a capture it had to be transferred from the SnagIt program out into where-ever it is you wanted to save it. This had to be done before I could create the next capture (which was a bit irritating). Now, you don't have to stop the flow. You can create as many captures as you like and leave them in SnagIt until you are ready to transfer them to their final output folders. SnagIt will produce a row of thumbnails at the bottom of the screen so you can scroll and see all your captures still being saved inside SnagIt.
There are lots of editing tools to use. It's a photo editing, art creation, business design etc. etc. program as well! You can do some quick editing of both text and images before saving it to your output folders. You can quickly type notes on the capture to remind you where you found the capture, or just to add any comments that will be useful. If you capture a document that has personal/private info, like a social security number or credit card number, you can just blur that out before sending it to your output folder.
One reviewer wrote that he didn't think the company existed due to a problem he had in contacting them. However, they certainly do exist and they offer a variety of interesting products. I receive regular helpful newsletters from them with lots of tips. I've spoken to them on the phone and their website has online CHAT for immediate assistance. It is a very classy company considering the uniqueness and affordability of their products.
A few other reviewers commented that v.9.1 is slower than their earlier versions. In the month that I have used the trial version, all of my captures have been either the same speed or faster than my earlier version. (I am admittedly using the v9.1 on a newer, faster computer than I typically used with v8.2) In the event that the captures (e.g. multiple screen scrolling) take a bit longer, the subsequent user handling of the captured file can be done much more efficiently, so in that case it should be a "wash". Overall I have been able to do much more in less time with v9.1. (I tested this new version in Vista Premium but I will also be using it on XP, if it is noticeably slower on the XP I'll update this review)
I use SnagIt in combination with Microsoft OneNote, another program that captures what's on your screen. There are times when OneNote "clips" are a better choice especially if you intend to save the capture in OneNote. These two programs make an excellent combination to keep you organized and keep you moving through your work flow. If you find yourself using your Desktop or Favorites to create shortcuts to bookmark info or web pages you want to return to just to finish reading an article or just as a reminder that it exists, SnagIt and or OneNote can help you reduce the clutter.
Files can definitely be saved into multiple software programs using different file extensions (not just PNG as I read in another review).
The upgrade from v.8.2 to v9.1 costs $24.99.
The 30-day free trial has no functionality restrictions, so you can try all of the many features before you buy. The purchase price includes two licenses. I use one at work and the other at home. I am 100% satisfied with this program.
It is fairly simply to use. Like most powerful software, the challenge or learning curve is becoming familiar with all of its capabilities. (I probably only use 15% of what my word processor is capable of doing).
If you want to create unique videos from other media, then this is the best tool you can buy.
I have about 20 DVDs of home movies. My project is to surgically extract different short scenes from the library, such as showing short clips of my son growing up, to create one special video of his life from 0 to 21.
I recommend SnagIt. It is worth the price. YouTube has examples on how to use it! Enjoy.
