SnagIt is a popular name when it comes to screenshot software; it is well known for its great amount of features and user friendliness. Although I prefer FastStone Capture over SnagIt (as a matter of habit), what makes SnagIt so appealing to users is the fact that not only can it capture screenshots (free hand, region, windows, scrolling windows, etc.) but it can capture videos, edit images (add arrows, text, watermarks, annotate, etc.), batch convert images, and still has more features not yet mentioned.
Currently the latest version of SnagIt is v9.1. However, for those that can’t afford or don’t want to purchase v9.1, today I am going to tell you about a way to get SnagIt 7.2.5 for free!
Admittedly, this promotion has been running for a while and I have known about it for a while. Why I have not posted about it until now, I am not particularly sure (there has been a previous post on a SnagIt v7.2.5 freebie though).
