Comments on Snagit in 2021

“My boss suggested Snagit as a tool for creating gifs in a project I was working on this last year. I downloaded the trial and I’ve never looked back. I’ve been surprised to find that I now use Snagit every single day! My favorite new Snagit discovery is the text grab tool, which allows someone to grab text from screens that don’t allow you to copy and paste and quickly capture the content as plain text.” Lauren Westcott, L&D Manager, USA

“I use SnagIt all the time for quick screenshots. If I need to quickly show a colleague or client how to do something, or I need to show an error for troubleshooting, SnagIt is the perfect tool.” Christy Tucker, USA

“The ultimate micro-learning tool. Fast, easy-to-use tools to make getting instructions to users a breeze. So easy to use I try to get everyone on it, especially if part of their job role is to tell people what to do, (a.k.a. training!).” Kely McKeown, Senior Manager, Corporate Global Training and Systems, USA
