A Quick Overview of SnagIt: What It Is, How to Use It and Why You Need One

Are you tired of having to stop what you are doing, find the print screen button on your keyboard and then paste it into Paint or Photoshop? Snagit is a screen capture and recording software that will allow you to do it all with just one click. 

Snagit is a screen capture and recording software that allows you to do both at the same time. Snagit comes in two versions, Snagit Standard or Snagit Pro. Snagging your screen will allow you to save images of anything on your computer for future reference, share them with others, or create tutorials on how something works. This article will teach you how to use Snagit so you can get the most out of it! 

When we talk about Snagit, the first thing that comes to mind is screen capture and recording software. Snagit can be used in a variety of ways: capturing screenshots, editing them and even recording your desktop activity. Snagit also has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to use, so you don’t have to worry about being bogged down with complex features or complicated instructions for how-to’s. Snagit can help you get more done in less time by streamlining your workflow!

Snagit can take screenshots of any size – even if your computer monitor is extra-large. You can also record videos directly from your webcam or desktop microphone, which makes this software perfect for creating tutorials on how to use certain applications. Snagit has an easy interface that doesn’t require any technical knowledge whatsoever; anyone who knows how to point and click should be able to figure out how it works in no time.

Snagit allows you to annotate, highlight, record, or call out image elements beyond basic screen capture.


PC and Mac compatible

Snagit works on both platforms. Snagit supports multiple monitors- Snagit software is designed to support multi monitor setups, allowing you to capture and record desktop activity across screens.

Special effects

Snagit comes with a variety of special effects that can be added to your Snaps or videos. Snag it has over 20 different graphics and media elements that you can use – such as arrows, shapes and stamps – to make Snags more effective.

Snagit stamps

Snagit has over 100 different stamps that you can add to Snaps and videos, including general images such as arrows or smiley faces. Snag it also includes a variety of product-specific stamps that will help make your Snags even more helpful for others.

Webcam recording

Snagit Snaps can be recorded using your computer’s webcam. Snagit is the only desktop software that allows this, making Snags even easier to create and share with others.

Video trimming

Snagit Snaps can be trimmed to the exact part of the image that you want.

Image capture

Snagit Snaps

Snagging is the act of capturing an image or video directly from your computer’s activities. Snagit Snapping saves you time by letting you do this with just one click instead of having to navigate through menus and take multiple steps for each Snap.


  • Wi-Fi syncing for the Android and iOS applications
  • Create and share your own personalized templates
  • Exports to cloud storage
  • GIF creator that is integrated with the program
  • Has OCR (optical character recognition) functions
  • Capture panoramic photos and videos


  • Costly


The most significant disadvantage of Snagit, in my opinion, is its cost. Free plan is not available to Snagit. A single individual or business Snagit license costs $62.99 for Snagit 2021. Although the cost per user decreases as the number of users rises, this still represents a significant investment for large organizations with numerous users.

Snagit continues to be the screen capture software of choice. Although the app is more costly than the competition, it boasts a degree of versatility and functionality that no other product can match. 

If you value Snagit’s performance and want the ability to capture and edit screenshots, then Snagit is worth every penny.
