SnagIt has been a part of the tool kit of technical communicators for quiet some time. I use it regularly in my daily work. But until now ShagIt was available only for the Windows machines.
Now SnagIt has a Mac version, available for those newer Macs with Leopard OS. Here is an excerpt from a recent review:
After you install and it place it on your dock, you can access it from the right side of your desktop and from your Mac toolbar. It offers the following capture options:
- All-in-One Capture for capturing the entire screen, a region, window, or scrolling window. This capture mode works differently than some other capture apps I’ve used previously, so I recommend testing it out for yourself prior to using it on a real project for the first time. It took me a couple of tries to get used to this mode.
Window Capture for capturing an application or browser window that is hidden behind other open windows or a transparency within an open window. I didn’t see where I would use this capture mode in my own my own work, especially after enjoying the flexibility of the All-in-One Capture mode.
