The installation of SnagIt is easy and intuitive. You are going
to find though that you have a number of choices to make. SnagIt has the ability
to integrate into your system in a number of useful ways. Some of those are
optional when you do the install. The first choices are the SnagIt Studio
annotation editor, the printer capture driver and whether you want add SnagIt to
the right-click menu in Windows Explorer. The next choices are Add-Ins to
applications, like for Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Internet Explorer and
others. The end of the installation process is when you select where you want
shortcuts and if you want SnagIt to start with Windows.
When you start the SnagIt trial version you are presented with a nag screen that
has the usual buy etc options, but it also has another one. It is to "Take the
Tour" if you click on this you will be taken to a webpage with a video tour. I
would advise you to take it. There are video's on Image Capture, Text Capture,
Web Capture and Video Capture.
The reason that I recommend the video tour is that even if you think you know
what SnagIt can do and what you want it for you are sure to get more ideas from
those videos of the ways that you can use SnagIt.
Here is what SnagIt does:
SnagIt is without a doubt the most useful graphics and multimedia tool that
there is. Not only that it is easy to use and the price is right.
Try It! Buy It!
