I’ve been using SnagIt from TechSmith for a number of months now and it is simply a killer screen capture tool! It’s been a breeze to use it for the hundreds (literally) of screenshots I’ve done for the book — it’s saved me hours of work compared to dealing with Paint which is just a joke.
Plus, SnagIt has a bunch of great features like a Flickr profile which lets me upload screenshots right to Flickr. Now that’s cool!
Better still, SnagIt provides a printer driver which lets you print anything as an image. This scored me big time Wife Points tonight as I did some SnagIt magic which let me get a page from a PDF file she had into an image which she could then easily insert into a Word document she’s working on. (Hat tip for that trick to Graham Mayor’s very helpful tips site.)
(Disclaimer: I got SnagIt as a speaker gift from TechSmith for speaking at the Day of .NET this last May.)
