Don’t capture the screen, snag it!

SnagIt is the coolest way to take a screenshot and customize it. Use any of the special effects, add text, and mesh pictures together.

Screenshots just got an upgrade

Take high-quality screenshots and add special effects to them!

Capturing your Mac screen has never been a problem, but what if you could edit and customize your screenshots? That’s what SnagIt is for!

This software is about more than just taking screenshots; rather, get creative with the extra features and turn a stock image into something that better suits your needs.

Save all your captures to a handy tray. It allows you to pull up screenshots from an archive and use them again. You can organize photo files into different folders so that it’s easier to find them. Even if you haven’t saved something, it’ll be waiting in your clipboard, so you decide what to do with it later.

Images can be altered in a variety of ways, including shadings, borders, and perspective of the screenshot.

SnagIt takes up very little space on your Mac desktop, and the file size is less than 400 MB. It resides in the corner of the screen so that you can click on it whenever you need it. The handy start-up feature arranges all your windows neatly on your screen.

The interface can be a little tricky to use at first, but if you regularly take screenshots, you’ll get the hang of it. There’s also the issue of bugs and the software crashing, but this is infrequent, and there are regular updates rolled out.

Where can you run this program?

This program can be run on Mac OS X 10.12 or a newer operating system. There is also a Windows version that is installable on computers running Windows 8.1 or a more recent OS.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. SnagIt has great features but is a little pricey. Snappy offers similar services but is completely free to use.

Our take

This progis bursting with editing tools and features to make screen grabbing a lot easier. It has a bunch of photo options that allow for creativity, and the sharing feature is great. It could do with a slightly lower price and friendlier platform.

Should you download it?

No. Other programs offer the same services but at a fraction of the cost, or free of charge.
