Free SnagIt 7.2.5!

2009-11-01_225717SnagIt 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).

Before I tell you how to get SnagIt v7.2.5 for free, watch these series of videos which will give you an idea of what SnagIt can and cannot do:

    @ Grant M.

    On windows 7 64, the installer hangs on installing the printer driver for me. I guess the printer driver isn’t 64bit compatible.

    Good offer though, will install on my laptop later on :)

  • Grant M

    Has anyone tried this version of SnagIt in Vista 64 yet? Just curious if it’s worth giving it a try :)

    Thank you for the offer here Ashraf :)

    Not only is SnagIt impressive, the entire Avanquest Calendar itself is AWESOME! I just downloaded and installed Website X5 (Which, if I remember correctly was once a GOTD item, but I had since lost when upgrading to Win7, months ago). I am now attempting to struggle through with my limited French to see what other wonders are to come!

  • Hi all Dottechies,
    I always use ‘Solid Capture’ to capture something on my screen. But as Ashraf’s suggestion above, I think I am gonna give a try for this SnagIt.
    Btw, the link is come from Avanquest Calendar in french section (Last time when I visit their website, I got English version. Now I can’t understand their phrases, not even a single word)

    Hello Fellow Dottechies:

    Do yourself a very big favor and take advantage of this offer. I have been using this version of Snagit for a couple of years and it is my second most used application (second only to TexNotes). I use it numerous times a day. Every bank transaction is recorded via SnagIt. Whenever I need to print a map with directions from Google maps I take a screen shot, rather than print directly from Google. Why? The helpful blue line that shows the driving path to your destination disappears when you print from their site. I hate that! Plus you can just print the section of the map that is necessary for your need. Tip: when printing these screen shots, print at the best setting for your printer (you will get a much better result, that is easy to read). TAKE THE TIME TO LEARN WHAT THIS PROGRAM IS CAPABLE OF! It is an amazing, powerful program.

    As far I remember, this was posted before and I downloaded same version?

  • thanks ashraf. snagit’s my favorite screen capture software. :)

    Greetings all! Thanks for the heads-up on this, Ashraf. This is a great program, folks. I used to use PickPic but swapped to SnagIt after I tried it. I liked it so much and found it so useful that I shelled out for the paid version. I highly recommend it (for what that’s worth). Grab it while you can!
