Session 1: Introducing the Latest Version of SnagIt

For information about the complete series of Saturday sessions, see The Saturday Series

You can now access the recording for this class. 

SnagIt is a low cost, screen capture, mobile capture, and video recording tool on the market with a price-point under $50. It is so sophisticated it can take the place of most of what Adobe PhotoShop would do for the average tech communicator’s needs.  Did you know you could create custom profiles and add settings like borders, image size reductions, and more so you can quickly take images without having to tinker with them?

Or that you could set up SnagIt to copy your screenshots directly into a Word or other document (with borders) so you can skip a lot of repetitious and boring steps on the way to getting beautiful screenshots?

Learn the best ways to use the tool, create your own customized profiles to suit your needs, automatically generate standard screen shots with boarders and other effects, convert batches of graphics, customize your workspace, and more.

Also learn some basic best practices regarding how to take good screenshots, good border settings, and general good habits.
Even if you’re an experienced SnagIt user, this course is guaranteed to teach you some new tricks!


Trainers Note: I used to teach Advanced Word at a junior college for five years and I found that about 20% of the students who took that class were not of an advanced level. They confused the length of time they used Word with the level of user that they were. But if you use a tool repeatedly for 1 year or 20 but never advance in your understanding of the tool, you never become an advanced use, just an experienced beginner. That goes for any of the sessions above. If you have used SnagIt, for instance, for years but never advanced beyond basic screen capturing, then you should check out the class.

These classes will be open to STC National so you will need to sign-up quickly using Eventbrite, and because seating is limited, if you decide that you can’t attend, please release your ticket so someone else can attend in your place.
