SnagIt – No Longer a Simple Little Screen Capture Tool!

Loading Events

Join us for our November Chapter Meeting (on November 13th) to learn about Snagit 2018. If you thought that SnagIt was just a little ol’ tool that let you capture screens and do a little bit of editing before you pasted them into your documentation project, well, then you’ll be in for a delightful surprise.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is no longer your grandma’s screen capturing utility tool. Oh, no. For under $50 you can use this tool more than you can use Photoshop and for far, far less of an investment. If you scoff, and think this talk is not worth your time, think how much time you spend after inserting a graphic into Word (or another tool), and then adding a border, resizing an image, changing the border color, etc. I can show you how to do all of those things with 1 click of a button using your SnagIt tool.

Aside from the obvious screen capturing, in this talk, you will learn the following additional capabilities that will make you drool and want to download SnagIt while I’m still talking. You will learn how to:

  • Capture screenshots that will skip the editing screen and go directly into the document or other software you say.  Without going into the Editor at all!
  • Add borders, resize images, add special features, and much more, and then insert into documents without touching the editor.
  • Set up and use color palettes for a specific project so your SnagIt accessories match the palette (great for web work or other work with lots of coordinating color requirements)!
  • Easily add borders, circles, numbered items, lines, arrows, text, and more without having to change the colors on individual items.

And much more!
